Simply Stylish

Lighting in the kitchen needs to be functional as well as stylish and layering of light in this area works well. You may choose to use recessed spotlights for the entire ceiling area and then use pendant lights to carve out different zones for food preparation or dining.

Groups of 3 always work well so why not choose a pendant light such as the Roseville Pendant – Copper and position in a group above a wooden or marble kitchen island worktop for effortless style. The sleek copper finish on this pendant light will also complement modern brightly coloured spaces.

Introducing Colour

Inject some colour into the room with a kitchen pendant light in a sharp vibrant tone for an inviting feel. Take the Soho Pendant – Red with its modern styling and smooth red finish which can be positioned over white kitchen units with granite worktops for a simple yet striking design.

Making a Statement

Whether you prefer red gloss units or monochrome styling with black granite and quartz worktops, the kitchen/diner is an area where you can make your mark in terms of design. For statement lighting why not choose the Academy 3 Light Bar Pendant – Stainless Steel. This striking contemporary piece teams stainless steel with glass and features a set of 3 lights. It will work beautifully positioned over a white marble topped kitchen island or a glass or wooden dining table.

Embracing Modernity

Clean lines and handle-free units can create a sharp look for your kitchen/diner. Whether you choose a rich walnut or high gloss cream finish for your units, a striking contemporary kitchen pendant light can enhance the space. The Edit LED Bar Pendant in polished chrome will provide both ambient and task lighting positioned over a smart laminate work surface or dining table and will be a striking addition to your décor. Its use of advanced energy efficient LED technology makes it cost effective too.

Fine Dining

The kitchen/diner is quite often the place where the family gathers to eat. Kitchen pendant lighting positioned over the dining table can create a cosy ambience whilst adding to the overall design of the space. Getting the height right for your pendant lighting is important. The Provence Rise and Fall Pendant – Polished Nickel can be manoeuvred as and when required. It will work well with solid oak flooring or slate tiles to complete the look.
