Kitchen Lighting

One of the first priorities we've had in the house is to change the kitchen up a bit. Naive ones that we are, we thought we would have this done within the first month we lived here. That deadline is all of ten days away, and there is currently no contractor on site. Lesson learned. In addition to changing up the countertops and backsplash and painting over some pink paint, we have a generic light fixture in the middle of the kitchen. 

This light fixture has, for some reason, been singled out by moi as the main offender. Now I'm on a search for something historically appropriate for the house yet modern and effective. I'm thinking we will end up with a flush mount due to space constraints and ceiling height, but a pendant could still be in the mix. Plus, I thought I would throw an aspirational chandelier in the mix, because really, who doesn't need one of those in their kitchen?


  1. Too funny, after browsing the pictures I of course honed in on that chandelier thinking, "Wow, people actually use chandeliers as kitchen lighting?" I guess it's the same folks who dress their children in white and trust them alone in the kitchen ;) I look forward to seeing what you choose. I have never considered historically appropriate lighting outside of the context of gas lamps or candelabras. What would it mean for a kitchen? My mind gets stuck between really basic versus the flash forward to very modern. Guess I'll Google a bit and learn.

  2. Purchase discount & luxury kitchen lights to give your kitchen a lighting effect that is natural, warm, modern and relaxing. Creating the perfect kichen lights setting is necessary especially if you have a dining section in the kitchen.
