Updated: Jan 20, 2020

Kitchen lighting as never been as exciting as we see today. There are so many styles and options to choose from, it can get quite overwhelming. But the good news about the many variations of lighting is that almost anything goes. This allows you to truly make your lighting personal and have it really reflect the design of your kitchen. When thinking about lighting there are few rules to keep in mind. It’s important to follow your general style and theme (or mix it up thoughtfully for an eclectic look), and always pay attention to task lighting, use it in the backsplash or anywhere else you want or need light. Other than that picking out the perfect lighting can really make your kitchen dramatic and multi-dimensional. We hope these ideas will give you the right inspiration to get the perfect look for your kitchen.

Getting creative in your design can really help your kitchen look unique and fun. Lighting fixtures with unusual and voluminous texture can become a floating sculpture, and really represent an art piece. Trendy for the chic kitchen table, we would classify this look as modern elegance.

Minimalist Lighting

Sometimes going simple is the best route. Having a simple, iconic light fixture in white will make it nearly invisible. Perfect for small minimalist kitchens, the look of a single modern light fixture is easy to appreciate.

Mixed Up Fixtures

One of the biggest trends in new kitchen designs are mix matched lighting. People are selecting a few light fixtures from a brands collection, and making their own grouping. Varying heights and sizes show design flexibility and adds a really unique look.

Industrial Lighting

This type of lighting is a good look for a kitchen with a more industrial feel. Although it may give off a retro feel too, this light fixture is thoroughly modern. Adding fixtures in threes give it a pleasant design statement. This type of lighting can also enhance a minimalist kitchen too.

Hang Low Pendants

This popular and cozy trend helps add accent lighting while still remaining visible in your kitchen. You can hang them as low or as high as you want, and it will add the perfect touch to any style of kitchen.

Lighting for a trendy kitchen design needs nothing more than a fabulous light fixture. An island doesn’t always need multiple pendants, instead, a single, gorgeous, over-sized fixture can tell the design story.

Vintage Light Fixtures

Handcrafted, a little rustic, a little retro with a lot of style. Vintage is the new modern and it would work great in any contemporary kitchen.
