New Island Pendants

Perhaps you’re planning to add an island to your kitchen at some point this year — you’ve been thinking about it for a long time, but 2022 is the year it gets done. With any new island (or existing island), it’s important to have the proper pendant lighting for task and accent illumination. You can choose from a number of sizes and styles!

Under Cabinet Lighting

Every kitchen needs to be a functional workspace, as well as an inviting room where you feel at home. With a new kitchen build or remodel, under cabinet lighting should be at the top of your list. These fixtures will provide the light you need for prepping, mixing, and cleaning, and they can also function as accent lights in the evening and nighttime hours.

Recessed Lighting

If your kitchen has a high or vaulted ceiling, or you want to add more lighting to the perimeter of the room, recessed fixtures are an ideal option. These lights can provide more general illumination for your kitchen, making the space brighter and more appealing. You’ll want to make sure that you have a symmetrical layout for your recessed lights, no matter where you place them.

Modern Ambient Fixtures

While your kitchen may seem bright enough with island pendants, under cabinet fixtures, and recessed lights, you can still add a modern ambient fixture to the ceiling. This can be a mini chandelier in the center of the room, or two or three modern semi-flush fixtures that run the length of the room. Whichever style you choose, make sure it’s one you know you’ll enjoy for years to come!
