Chances are you spend the majority of your time in your kitchen, cooking, eating and visiting with friends and family. For many families, the kitchen is the hub of the home where everyone gathers together for quality time. Basic lighting in your kitchen can provide the light that you need, but did you know that you can add style and interest to the busiest home in your how by hanging pendant lights? This style of lighting gives you the illumination that you need to see you work as you chop and prepare food, but can also pull together the design of your space.
The great thing about pendant lights, especially the small versions, is that you can hang them virtually anywhere in your kitchen. They are completely versatile and look great over the sink, over an island or countertop, or even hung in a row over your dining room table. You can choose to space them evenly in a row, or you can hand them sporadically throughout the room for a completely different look. You may want to choose the same style of pendant, hung at the same height to create uniformity, or you may want to add a little whimsy with different styles hung at varying heights. No matter what you choose to do, you can draw guests to your home into your kitchen.
Larger pendant lights, such as bowl or drum pendants, can create an atmosphere all their own. If you want to add drama, these lights are the choice for you. Drum pendants look beautiful lined up in a row over your island. They are large and eye-catching, giving you the opportunity to add color and pattern to your space by choosing a fabric for the drum that coordinates with the scheme of the rest of your kitchen. By using bowl pendants, you can decide whether you prefer up lighting or down lighting in your kitchen. With the bowl facing up, the light shines towards the ceiling and can create a good ambiance. When the bowl faces down, the lighting can be focused downward onto your workspace, which is great for task lighting.
