When it comes to pendant lighting, Dan Kitchens kitchen designer Vagn Madsen follows a few simple rules. “Don’t buy pendant lights without first checking the size by creating a mock-up,” Madsen advises. “That 50-centimetre-diameter pendant light might not sound big, but when placed in the room it could easily look enormous.” He suggests bringing a sample home, cutting out the shape in cardboard, or simply measuring it out with a tape measure in situ.
A period-friendly light fixture is the perfect way to top off a kitchen restoration. But should you choose an authentic vintage fixture, or a spot-on reproduction? The answer depends on a number of different considerations. Use our guidelines below to determine which type of light is best for you.
