Most people use pendant lights as an alternative to the recessed lighting. This type of lighting can actually be a great feature. It is especially effective if you hand a low pendant over an island or any table you have in the kitchen.

In general this type of lighting will not give the same brightness as under cabinet or recessed, however it is an excellent way of creating an ambiance and a feature at the same time.

If you’re choosing to add a pendent  make sure it is hanging approximately 40 inches above the counter top; this will create the best possible effect. It is a more moody light than the other lighting options.

It is best not to have more than one hanging or pendent style light in your kitchen as it will make the space look cluttered.

Natural Light

It is important not to underestimate the power of natural light when finding the best light for your kitchen. During the day time you shouldn’t need to use artificial light. Even if you have just one window you can create a floodlit kitchen by using mirrors to bounce the light round the room.

We hope these suggests have pointed you towards the best lighting for your kitchen.

  4. I would love new lighting in my kitchen. Everyone bangs their head on the one over the table and cooking in the evening brings a challenge to the kitchen as the lighting is very poor. I’d love under counter lighting and some recessed lights too.
