Pendant light fixtures add personality to your kitchen

Adding pendant light fixtures to your kitchen is a great way to elevate the look of the room. Pendant lighting brings a unique style and more light into your kitchen, and there is an incredible number of both LED and incandescent lighting options. A few pendant lights lined up in the kitchen make a dramatic decorative statement and cast a cozy glow over the busiest room in the house.

What is a pendant light?

A lighting fixture is considered a pendant light if it hangs down from the ceiling on a long chain, metal rod, or cord. They can be suspended up near the ceiling, or hung lower over a kitchen island or table. Pendant lighting comes in an incredible array of colors, styles, and shapes. Pendant light shades range from vintage to contemporary and can be both beautiful and practical.

Pendant lighting style

In a kitchen, you will usually see pendant lighting hanging in a trio or pairs. A single pendant light may also be used over a sink or other areas for task lighting. A row of pendant lights adds a touch of true designer style to any kitchen. Don't be afraid to blend the old with the new, for example, using Edison bulb style pendant lights in a kitchen with ultra-modern appliances. Pendant lighting gives you an opportunity to express your personality in a practical way in the kitchen.

Types of kitchen lighting

Before you choose your pendant lights, determine what your lighting needs are in the kitchen. There are four types of kitchen lighting. Task lighting lights up a specific area you need to be illuminated for tasks like cooking or chopping. Pendant lights work well for task lighting because they are open-ended on the bottom. Ambient lighting is general lighting for the kitchen to add to any natural light that comes in the room, and multiple pendant lights in a row work well for this purpose. Accent lighting is another type of kitchen lighting and highlights a certain feature such as a painting or stove hood. Generally, pendant lighting is not used for accent lighting. Finally, there is decorative lighting. The focus of decorative lighting is to add an element of style to the kitchen, and the shadows and light cast on the ceiling are other elements of decorative lighting. Pendant lighting comes in so many styles, it is a fantastic choice for decorative lighting.

Re-purposed pendant lights

You can create a unique pendant light out of just about anything. Re-purposing is one of the hottest trends in decorating, and lighting is no exception. Think outside of the box for pendant light shade ideas. Everything from pie plates, vintage mason jars, baskets, and brass bowls can be used as pendant lights in your kitchen. For a truly unique kitchen, look at your belongings with new eyes to find a one-of-a-kind pendant light shade idea.

Brighten up your home and add a ton of personality with kitchen pendant lights. With so many varieties to choose from, you're sure to find the perfect pendant lights to match your style.
