DIM IS OVER; GO BIG, BOLD WITH LIGHTING
Your kitchen is prepped for a makeover. You’ve located the perfect cabinets, pre-loved and little used. You’ve scored appliances you never thought you could afford…they too are recycled from another address and in perfect working condition.
Now it’s time to shine a light on it. A Hollywood-worthy light.
Make an impact with oversized lighting over the center island. Pendant lights with 2-foot diameter drum shades are at the top of the trending list.
The über-sized fixtures do more than light up the room. They become the focal point when you enter the kitchen. They center the room’s energy over the island where food prep and homework happen simultaneously.
Go daring. Use metallic shades to add an extra sparkle and they are easily cleaned compared to a fabric shade when ingredients gain velocity.
Today’s large pendants come in innovative shapes and materials—from bent wood spirals to geodesic dome of punched metal to industrial pipe to concrete cone-shaped clustered pendants.
Get creative. Move beyond your traditional lighting comfort zone.
