Why We Love Kitchen Lighting

The kitchen is a commonly used workspace that can be transformed into an elegant café for your home with the right touches. While most kitchen lights offer bright task lighting, there are many modern designs that can elevate the aesthetic of this often-overlooked living space.

Where Kitchen Lighting Works Best

Chandelier light fixtures and pendants for the kitchen come in a variety of sizes and shapes, ranging from smaller designs for the breakfast nook to robust pieces to hang over the dining table. If you have an island in your space, track lighting and monorail systems can add some style over an otherwise simple area. Consider stringing together multiple mini pendant lights to provide an added amount of illumination.

Kitchen Lighting Ideas for Every Style

In classic kitchens decorated with traditional decor items, you'll love the options from Kichler and Elk Lighting. Transitional kitchens benefit from Feiss, including well-designed flushmounts, pendants and sconces. Consider pendants from Bocci for an eye-catching look and for modern appeal, you'll want to look at Tech Lighting or Nelson Bubble Lamps. Lastly, to achieve an energy efficient kitchen, be sure to see the LED kitchen lighting available.

How to Choose the Best Kitchen Lighting

Selecting the best kitchen lamps requires careful attention to the function of a light fixture. You first need to determine whether you need functional, work space lighting or more ambient fixtures. Thoroughly measure your kitchen to decide how big (or how small) of a light fixture the room can accommodate. Keep in mind important sizing dimensions like height, width, depth and weight. Finally, try to choose colors and finishes of kitchen lighting that will complement existing furniture and decorative pieces in the room to create cohesiveness.

Other Considerations

For those counter spaces left in shadow from cabinets or appliances, counter lights are ready to illuminate, thus expanding your working area to its intended, comfortable size. Many are available in LED as well, giving you an energy efficient way to brighten up the space. And to support a bit of versatility with your kitchen's lighting, consider placing your fixtures on light dimmers. Dimming controls are easy to install and you'll instantly appreciate their versatility. Lastly, pair your new light fixtures with equally stylish kitchen furniture pieces.
