Industrial Lighting in the Kitchen

by ·

No matter how fancy a kitchen is, I always like to see industrial lighting as a part of it. It gives such a solid foundation: hearty, serious, and functional. Though industrial lighting may seem heavy and bulky, it can be lightened up by paying attention to scale or changing the color. Here are some of my favorite ways to use industrial lighting in the kitchen.

  1. Emmas Design Blogg. Industrial lighting works well because the opening is so large and when the inside is colored lightly, it can really be light and bright! If your selected shade is not light inside, try painting it a light color.
  2. Belviewtech. This kitchen features industrial lighting that has been lightened up with glass so it feels a touch more homey and residential for those who don’t like the heavy look.
  3. Interiors By Studio M. This series of small industrial pendant lamps works well because of the smaller size in scale. The single, paired down light bulb is not distracting to the space and provides plenty of light.
  4. Lovely Life. This is a similar series of single light bulbs but showing how it works in a large setting. Beautiful and simple. Industrial Lighting in the Kitchen
  5. Eye For Design. These huge pendant lamps are created with tubs turned upside down. They fill the large space and add a serious yet neutral tone.
  6. Dream Book Design. These industrial pendant lamps are painted tomato red and add a light yet substantial source of lighting to the equally fun space.
  7. homedit. The classic industrial lighting pendant is perfect for a Scandinavian space—one that is clean and minimal yet needs a touch of gravity.
  8. Hub Pages. This collection of different vintage industrial lamps is a fun way to lighten up the mood and adds dimension and depth.

What are your thoughts on the industrial lamp look?
