Have you ever noticed how a really great party tends to end up in the kitchen? You’ll find guests nibbling on leftovers, topping off their drinks and chatting. Furthermore, daily family activities and entertainment often seem to flow naturally into the kitchen. Rather than just being a place for food prep, it’s where the family gathers or the kids do their homework. It’s truly the heart and hearth of the home. With the holidays approaching, now is a great time to make it even more inviting, useful, and fun to be in! A great way to update your kitchen is to revamp the lighting design. Adding various types of lighting can create an entirely new kitchen design!
If you’re looking to create a contemporary and minimalist design, the best kinds of lighting fixtures are sleek and silver. The pendants that are featured have such smooth, clean styling, and in this cluster arrangement, they provide abundant task lighting while accenting the island’s chic, functional design. This kitchen has an extremely sleek and professional look while maintaining a relaxed feel with the wood accents.
Perhaps you’re looking for a more traditional style. Try Maxim Lighting. An island light fixture is a great option for clustered pendant lights. This bronze fixture have three lamps that illuminate the area and its classic styling makes it an ideal choice for traditional interiors. If the kitchen island lighting isn’t enough, these pendants pair well with various chandeliers in the same family. The end result is a gorgeous warm hue, perfect for the holidays!
The wall sconce on the left creates a stylish counterpoint to this six-light island light from Maxim Lighting. I love the sleek lines, rustic ebony finish and stone candle shades. The island lighting provides a dining table candelabra design but without consuming space. Perfect!
Under-cabinet lighting is the unsung hero of kitchen design. It complements the other lighting and provides excellent illumination for tasks—a handy feature when you’re slicing up a loaf of French bread or sautéing fresh haricots verts. These state-of-the-art LED’s emit clean white light with no shadows and provide great lighting for a family dinner or after dinner game-playing!
