Illuminate Your Kitchen The Right Way
Before we know it, Summer will be coming to an end and – despite the beautiful Outdoor Lighting you purchased for the season – its time to think about revamping the interior.
The living room may be the heart of the home but, the kitchen is definitely the stomach. So, let us guide you on some trends and tricks for bringing the warmth inside.
The kitchen is one of the most significant spaces within a home. As the area dedicated to good food, bad day cups of tea and more importantly – the room with the fridge, it should be lit both adequately and beautifully.
Award-winning Interior designer Katharine Pooley, in an article for kitchen trends in 2019 for Elle Décor, said that "Statement hanging pendants will be important in denoting different areas within an open-plan space. Anchoring the dining area will be particularly important and sculptural jewellery, like pendants in hard finishes with a mid-century Italian influence, will be popular in luxury developments."
With that being said, it’s safe to say that LED Pendant Lights are the way to go when deciding on how to illuminate your kitchen. We have further found some trending styles and hand-picked some stunning options for your home.
Venture Back With Vintage Fittings
In a modern age, a touch of vintage will never hurt. Add an old-fashioned look to the space with soft brass or pewter tones within your chosen fittings. You could even opt for a Steampunk look with one of our more industrial fixtures.
Take a look at the 3 Way Over Table LED Light from Mirrorstone. Hanging from two sturdy chains, this bar of light holds three dark metal cone shades. It has a heavy-duty tubing aesthetic and is accented with deep copper to hang beautifully above a kitchen breakfast bar or island.
Keep it simple and chic with the SearchLight Antique Brass Pyramid Pendant With Clear Glass Shade. Mount a few above a small kitchen dining area, at different heights, for a contemporary twist. With its muted brass detailing and clear glass shade, it will not look cluttered and will definitely add some elegance into the space.
Nourish Any Space With Natural-Inspiration
You had to have been living under a rock for the past year to not have seen nature-inspired décor almost everywhere. With greenery walls, plants popping out of all corners and rattan textures in fashion, get this look for your kitchen easily with our Indoor Light Fittings.
Take a modern approach to your décor and install the Albany Angular Cement Electric Pendant Shade in your kitchen. This perfectly imperfect fitting resembles solid grey cement and the light from the bulb within will reflect on its walls for a beautiful glow.
Or go for a calming look with the Persia Wood Veneer Stepped Drum Pendant Shade. With four tiered hoops of light wood, this shade is certainly not overbearing and has a soft, rural vibe. The best position for this fitting is a dining area as it will make the space look even lighter, thus it will look larger and more inviting.
Other Trends You Will Love
Despite being the most popular predictions in Autumn 2019 lighting, the above two aesthetics are not alone. Other looks to be aware of include:
An Exposed Finish: Leave little to the imagination and let your guests revel in an exposed fitting that lays the light on show. Achieve this style with the SearchLight 2 Way Antique Brass Flush Box With Clear Bevelled Glass Panels.
A Pop Of Colour: Add some fun into the room with a bright fitting. If you don’t want to go for a Ceiling Light, take a look at a slightly more discreet Wall Light. Choose from a variety of colours with our Benton Single Spotlight Fitting With Cable Plug & Switch.
Integrated Fittings: An LED classic, an Integrated Fitting contains the LEDs already built-in to its fixture. A discreet way to have an integrated fitting is to use LED Strip Lights. They can be fixed around the perimeter of the ceiling, the floor or used as under cabinet illumination.
