How to Choose the Correct Light for a Kitchen Island?
You know how they say that a kitchen is the heart of the home? Well, a kitchen island is the heart of the kitchen, so why not dress it up with a pendant light? After all, it is the center of focus. Choosing the right pendant lighting for a kitchen island is easy. If you have a long kitchen bar or island, try hanging a similarly long and rectangular pendant light. It’s chic and easy, and having just one pendant ceiling light will help your space look clean-lined instead of cluttered. If you want to go with a single pendant light, or even a duo or trio of lights, you should match them to your kitchen color scheme.
What Style and Materials Matches Your Room?
Pendant ceiling lights come in all kinds of styles and materials, which can make the shopping process a little daunting at first. However, choosing the right one is actually pretty simple as long as you keep in mind a couple key elements. First, you will need to determine what the overall style of your space most closely matches and then pair that with a material that’s commonly used for that style. For example, if you have a kitchen brimming with farmhouse flair, you’ll want to consider pendant lighting with wooden details that pay homage to barnwood. Or, if your style is urban-industrial, choose a pendant light made with dark metals that resemble welded warehouse iron.
