When entering a room, we rarely take a look at the ceiling. Think of your best friend’s house. Would you be able to say which lamp every room has? Probably not. Nonetheless, lightning is essential for interior design. It can not only completely change the vibe of a room but, especially in the kitchen, is fundamental for you to make the most of the space available. Here are 14 kitchen lighting trends that wow! 

The Perfect Trio

Many kitchens have a single pendant right at the center of the ceiling, but this is not ideal. You may want to play with a trio if you have a long counter in the middle of the room. Install three identical ceiling lamps right above your counter for perfect symmetry.

When thinking of lighting, we either imagine lamps attached to the ceiling or floor lamps. However, sometimes, these are not enough. Your kitchen is a great example of this. Make sure to add some lights under your counters, where you will do most of the chopping and washing. 

Modern Chandelier

Who said chandeliers are out of fashion? Opt for a modern design and ensure it fits your room’s vibe. Chandeliers are the perfect mix of ultimate luxury and minimalistic modernity. When it comes to colors, keep it simple. Black or white never disappoints. 

Simple Brass

Don’t forget to add some scented candles as well. While these may not provide much light, they will add coziness to your room, ideal for whenever you decide to spend some time in your kitchen, for instance, sipping a steaming cup of tea and enjoying a little dessert. Scented candles can also help you mask bad odors when frying. 

Radial Forms

Its radial forms will immediately attract the attention of your guests to the ceiling while providing you with plenty of light to use your kitchen at its full potential. Make sure to use this light in combination with under-counter ones for the perfect brightness level.

Another great idea is to install a few different bulbs and let them hang from your ceiling. This fun project will give your kitchen that extra touch of extravaganza. Make sure all the bulbs differ in size and shape, or opt for identical ones if you prefer a symmetrical look.

Large industrial pendant lamps can be used in all sorts of kitchens. These stylish lamps will give your room plenty of light but won’t be too intrusive in your design. While they may be good for those opting for a simple, classic style, those wanting to make a bold statement with their lighting choices should try something else. 

A Touch of Colour

Sometimes, a touch of color is all you need. You can decide whether to paint your lamp the same color as your kitchen counters or opt for a completely different one to make it stand out. This can be an original idea for adding color and fun to your home without too much effort. 

Retro Desk Lamps
