I look at a lot of kitchens and one thing I always notice is their lighting. For me, it’s one of the most important elements that helps set it apart from other kitchens.
Good lighting helps places be memorable.
This kitchen is a good example of interesting lighting. It takes the monochromatic space and elevates it with a sculptural quality. Notice how the chairs echo the general shape of the light.
The pendant lights in this kitchen draw you in for a closer look.
I love these pendants, they are both glamourous and unusual.
Here is a kitchen that Jeff Lewis designed. The lighting is tremendously successful with it’s contemporary re imagination of a classic lighting fixture.
Here’s a tip for choosing kitchen lighting: Because of all of the square and rectangular geometry that is caused by the cabinets and tiling, it is a good idea to choose lighting with curved or rounded elements. Not only does it provide balance, it introduces variety as well as softness into the space.
