Kitchen ceiling lights are an essential part of your kitchen – not only are they a necessity for providing the ambient light you need, but they should be considered an integral part of the design to make your kitchen look great. Our extensive range of ceiling lights includes styles in a wide variety of materials like glass, metal, plastic, and natural materials such as wood and bamboo.
Depending on the height of your kitchen ceiling, and the design style you’ve chosen for your kitchen furniture, you might opt for a pendant, spotlights, downlights or even a glamorous chandelier; there's something for everyone's taste and all types of kitchen design. Glass and metal designs provide an industrial look, while wood fixtures look great in traditional style kitchens, such as farmhouse or shaker styles – and there are plenty of options for other kitchen designs too. No matter what your style, you'll be sure to find a perfect ceiling light that lights up your space, and adds interest to your kitchen.
What types of ceiling lights are good for kitchens?
The right lighting is essential for all kitchens. Practically, you need to be able to clearly see what you’re doing, but you also want your kitchen to look stylish, with your ceiling lights complementing the design and looking great. While some homeowners might opt for a single light on their kitchen ceiling – especially if the kitchen is a smaller one – there are opportunities to use more than one ceiling light for the ambient light, and task lighting in a kitchen.
One of the best ways to ensure that every task in the kitchen can be done easily and safely is to install a combination of downlights and spotlights in the ceiling, with pendant lights above dining tables and kitchen islands. This combination will provide an even spread of light which is great for cooking and cleaning, as well as allowing you to create the right ambience for dining.
In kitchens where ceilings are lower, it may be better to choose flush ceiling lights that don't protrude too far from the ceiling, or to look at recessed downlights. This means that you can get practical illumination without sacrificing headroom in smaller rooms – but don’t think flush ceiling lights have to be boring. There are decorative, eye-catching styles that look wonderful, without compromising the over-head space.
For kitchens where ceilings are high, and the kitchen is larger, chandeliers can look beautiful, and can add a touch of glamour. Where there is plenty of space overhead, bar pendants can be a statement accessory, and provide task lighting as well as ambient lighting above kitchen islands and dining tables.
The key thing to remember? A mixture of lighting works brilliantly in most kitchens, both practically and aesthetically.
Installing pendant lights in your kitchen can be a great move in terms of design. They come in all different shapes, sizes, and materials such as glass, metal, plastic, or even wood. Depending on what type you choose, they can be hung at various heights to create different visual effects. You might decide upon glass globes or drum shades above a kitchen table, or create an elegant feel to the space. In more industrial kitchens, lantern pendants above kitchen islands look perfectly at home. Pendant lights can enhance any kitchen by providing direct illumination to task areas, while bringing character to the environment with their unique designs.
Bar pendant are a fantastic visual addition to any kitchen space. From glass and metal designs that accentuate contemporary décor, to those made from wood and acrylics, there is a perfect style of bar pendant light fitting for every kitchen. Installing one over your kitchen table or island provides an inviting atmosphere with subtle illumination, whether you’re catching up over dinner or you’re preparing the most delicious meal at the island. With the wide range of options available, you can easily find the perfect bar pendant light fitting for your kitchen. If you’re looking for flexibility, look for height adjustable styles that allow you to lower the pendant while you’re chopping and peeling, and to raise them when you’re ready to dine.
Spotlights are an easy and effective way to add extra brightness to your kitchen. Whether you want easy installation for above your kitchen counters, a sleek addition to your kitchen island, or a way to highlight specific areas around your sink or counter top, spotlights can do the job. With a few simple steps and easy installation, spotlights are one of the best, most affordable ways to add extra light to your kitchen.
Track lighting is a great way to instantly improve the lighting in your kitchen. It's easy to install and doesn't have nearly as many restrictions as traditional ceiling fixtures. Plus, track lighting is adjustable, allowing you to adjust the light output of multiple types of lights on one fixture. With LED bulbs requiring very little power, you can add as many fittings to your track lighting as you need. Whether you're looking for a statement piece, or task lighting above kitchen counters, track lighting is perfect for highlighting any area in your kitchen.
Downlights are a practical and attractive lighting solution for kitchens. They provide focused light in a downward direction, with many styles allowing you to angle the direction of the light to where it's needed most. Downlights can be found with silver, chrome, brass or metal housing – just add an LED bulb, and you’re away! As you’ll already know, they last much longer than the halogen styles that downlights used to use. They are also available with white plastic housing for those looking for a more affordable option, or one that is unobtrusive on a white ceiling. With downlights, you can create a warm and inviting atmosphere that looks good in any kitchen.
Recessed downlights are an ideal choice for a modern, minimalist kitchen with a neat, flush ceiling. Practically speaking, recessed downlights keep the look and feel of your kitchen uncluttered while providing abundant brightness. The diffuser used in this type of lighting is specially designed to direct the light downwards so it won't cause glare or interfere with any artwork or other embellishments on the ceiling. For more directional lighting, some recessed downlight fixtures come with adjustable angles, which allow you to highlight specific areas in a similar way to a spotlight – all from the same low-profile source.
Flush ceiling lights
Flush ceiling lights provide a practical and beautiful solution for kitchens with lower ceilings. You don’t have to compromise on your style, just because there isn’t enough space overhead for a pendant! Many of our flush ceiling lights have integrated LEDs, allowing for a decorative look, without needing to hang from the ceiling.
Our range of flush ceiling lights include downlights, spotlights, and track lighting that all fit close to the ceiling, providing ample light without any risk of accidents or bumps, and there are plenty of decorative styles that look great. With flush ceiling lights, you don't have to compromise on style due to your low ceilings; you can achieve a bright and attractive kitchen safely.
Chandeliers are a great way to add a touch of glamour and sophistication to larger kitchens. They provide ambient light, which is perfect for entertaining guests or relaxing with family. Chandeliers come in many different styles and materials, from classic crystal designs to modern metal fixtures with high shine finishes like gold, brass, silver, and chrome. For kitchens with high ceilings, large chandeliers are a great choice for creating an elegant look that will make your kitchen stand out from the rest.
What colour should my kitchen ceiling lights?
Choosing the right ceiling lights for your kitchen can be a daunting task. With so many options available, it can be difficult to decide which one will look best in your space. Fortunately, there are plenty of options to make sure you get the perfect lighting for your kitchen.
Neutrals such as beige, clear, and wood are great options for kitchens as they provide a subtle yet stylish look, and this is perfect for coordinating with natural wood furniture.
Metals such as silver, chrome, gold, and brass are also popular choices for kitchen ceiling lights. Warm metals such as copper, gold, and brass can help create a cosy atmosphere, while silver and chrome can help to bounce the light around.
When selecting the right finish and colour for your ceiling lights, it is important to consider how they will match with other aspects of your kitchen, such as handles and knobs. Contrasting materials can also add visual interest to the space – so an all-wood kitchen can look wonderful with a stainless steel lantern with an interesting patina, for example, to give a more Scandinavian look.
Which materials are best for kitchen ceiling lights?
When choosing materials for kitchen ceiling lights, hard materials like metal, plastic, glass, and wood are best. These hard materials will stand the test of time better than softer ones, as they won’t cling onto oils or cooking smells in the air. They’re also much easier to clean; any dust, grease, or moisture can easily be wiped away with a damp cloth, or a little detergent, leaving your kitchen looking as good as new, and keeping the lights looking bright.
What colour temperature is best for kitchen ceiling lights?
Kitchen lighting isn’t the only factor to consider when designing a kitchen. The right lighting can make all the difference in how effectively you can cook, clean, and dine in your kitchen. The colour temperature of the light bulbs you choose will determine how comfortable and productive you are in your kitchen.
LED bulbs are the most popular choice for kitchen lighting, as many offer adjustable lighting options with various colour temperatures such as warm white light, daylight, and bright white light. When deciding on what colour temperature to use for your kitchen lighting, it is important to consider how much natural light is available in the space and what activities will be taking place there. Warm white light is best suited for creating a cosy atmosphere, while daylight or bright white light is better suited for tasks that require more focus such as cooking or cleaning.
Look for dimmable LED bulbs if you prefer a wall switch, but you might also consider a smart bulb. Smart bulbs are also becoming increasingly popular as they allow for more control over the colour temperature of your lights, as well as the brightness. This means you can choose the exact right levels of, and colours of lighting for whatever you’re doing – whether it is cooking, homework, or a cosy supper with friends.
What sort of bulbs are best for kitchen ceiling lights?
LED bulbs are the best choice for kitchens due to their brightness, longevity, and environmental benefits. LED bulbs are much more energy efficient than traditional light fixtures with integrated LEDs, which means lower energy bills, as well as being much better for the environment. They also last longer than traditional bulbs, meaning less maintenance and replacement costs. Finally, LED bulbs can be easily recycled when they reach the end of their working life, making them a more sustainable option for kitchen lighting.
Kitchen ceiling lights with integrated LEDs
LEDs are an increasingly popular choice for designers creating kitchen lighting. Not only do they use little energy, so you can save on your energy bills, they are also better for the environment, and their smaller size means that designers can be far more creative with their offerings.
LEDs have an impressive life expectancy of more than ten years, which allows you to have peace of mind that your lighting won't require replacing any time soon. LEDs are more easily recycled than conventional lighting, so old LED light fixtures can be disposed of or recycled more readily.
LEDs provide really bright lighting, capable of filling large rooms with ambient light and many styles now include the ability to adjust both the brightness and colour temperature according to your preference. Why wait – find the style that suits your kitchen in our range today.

Ceiling lights can make or break the style of your kitchen. It is important to choose the right lighting fixtures that will complement your kitchen's design. Depending on the type of kitchen you have, there are different types of ceiling lights that you can choose from.
Traditional kitchens look great with metal and wood fixtures, while modern kitchens can benefit from sleek glass and plastic designs. For a farmhouse style, consider investing in more rustic looking fixtures that will add visual interest to your space. Minimalist and Scandinavian kitchens should focus on simple lighting designs that won't take away from the overall look of the room.

They also help to create an open and airy atmosphere in the kitchen, allowing it to look spacious and inviting. With the right ceiling lights, your minimalist kitchen will be a stylish and functional space that is free from clutter.
Industrial style kitchens
Industrial style kitchens require ceiling lighting that is inspired by factories and warehouses. This type of lighting tends to be functional, metal, steel or glass to achieve the desired look. Floodlights, lantern styles and exposed bulbs can help create the industrial atmosphere. The metals used should be sturdy and durable, such as steel or iron, to ensure that your kitchen has an authentic industrial look, but you can also consider copper and brass, if you prefer a warmer metal. Additionally, glass can be incorporated to maintain the industrial theme. With these materials and designs in mind, you will be able to create a unique and stylish kitchen with an industrial flair.
