If you don’t get the lighting right, however, you’re likely to seriously regret it – kitchen lighting that’s too bright or dull, incorrectly placed, or too big or small in size is sure to irk you for years to come. Get it right, however, and you’ll enjoy spending time in this important room of the house, and it will make life easier too. We’ve consulted the experts for their advice on what works, what doesn’t, and what to watch out for.
You want something truly unique. If you’re looking for a fixture that can serve as a focal point—say, above an island or within a breakfast nook—a vintage light is the way to go. Getting that distinctive look doesn’t require going fully vintage, though; you can also pair a reproduction fixture with a vintage shade.
If you flip through any design magazine, or visit any home design website, there’s no question that when it comes to island lighting, pendants reign supreme. Ranging wildly in size, style and price point it’s a guarantee that you will find the perfect pendant lighting for your island. Whether you opt for a collection of mini frosted glass tulips, clear glass globes, or vintage industrial shades, there are of course a few basic “rules” that can be followed to make the most of your investment. First, consider height. Typically, pendants should be placed 70 to 85 centimetres above the countertop.
