Unique Lighting in the Kitchen

Kitchens have progressively become more and more stylish. Kitchens are the heart of the home, so why wouldn't we take the time to create a beautiful space that we don't mind spending hours in. Personally I don't cook much, but that doesn't mean that I don't find myself lingering in the kitchen making snacks for my kids or creating the perfect cup of Jo.

One decor detail that can really make your kitchen go to the next level is unique lighting. Whether you have an island or a long counter space, you can display pendants, track lights, recessed lights and even over the top chandeliers.

Wall scissor sconces are being seen more and more in modern design. It’s a perfect kitchen solution for spots that need a little more direct light. And the look is both timeless and fresh.

Another option for added light is chord pendant lighting. A lot of times you can purchase a chord light that just needs a plug in. Just hang it off of a ceiling hook and you have yourself a cool light.

Really anything can go in the kitchen. As long as it gives off needed light and it’s proportioned well in the space. If you have a really modern kitchen, find something whimsical and unique. If you have more of a traditional kitchen, add something modern. The juxtaposition always comes off looking great!

What’s your favorite unique lighting style for the kitchen?
