Illuminate the heart of your home with jaw-dropping kitchen lighting ideas that'll elevate your style.
1. The Bigger, the Better
Step away from those old skinny pendants and embrace the size of bold metal pendant lights. The hammered silver adds tactile appeal to this classic kitchen, which already has a striking display of contrast with two-toned cabinetry. Traditional trimwork and crown molding frame the space in a full-on timeless vibe.
2. Warm & Woven
Turn up the texture in your contemporary, modern or coastal style kitchen with a woven rattan pendant. The design pros at Pure Salt Interiors anchor this contemporary breakfast nook with a natural woven pendant. Not only does the pendant illuminate the space, but it mirrors the wood tones of the table below for a more cohesive design.
3. Fair & Square
Metal-and-wood square chandeliers bring farmhouse charm to this streamlined traditional kitchen, where the subtle blue-gray cabinets and range hood are paired with snowy white marble countertops and tile backsplash. The X shape of the light fixtures is repeated at the end of the island for a barn door-style look.
4. Opposites Attract
A surefire way to make a design element stand on its own: choose the opposite shade of everything else in the space. Sleek oil-rubbed bronze lights create a striking contrast in this all-white and wood kitchen. The windows are also bordered in black to pull the hue throughout the space, and of course, frame the stunning landscape outside.
5. Mix It Up
Brass and black are a match made in heaven in this chef’s kitchen. The modern glam lanterns showcase the mixed-metal lighting trend at its best. Use a similar mixed metal fixture in your kitchen and pair it with mixed cabinet hardware throughout for a cool, curated result.
