Looking for modern kitchen island lighting ideas?
If you’ve made the decision to invest in your home and have your kitchen renovated, then no doubt you’ve been mulling over the new and exciting possibilities that your kitchen space will give you. Extra storage, stylish cabinets and drawers, integrated or free-standing appliances, vibrant colours, boldness, neutral tones or minimalist, wide open floor space or a beautiful kitchen island…the choice is endless.
If you have decided to include an island, you’ve made a great choice. This is focal point in any kitchen and the way you light up your island needs to be considered. Here at Camwood Home Improvements, we are experts when it comes to supplying and installing modern kitchen island lighting.
You may be tempted to go down the simple yet classic design of three pendant drops – lighting that really does look fantastic – but does your kitchen require something different? Depending on the configuration of your new kitchen design, a trio of lights may not give enough illumination in your space. There are some striking designs available for modern kitchen island lighting that you may not have even considered yet.
What is the best design for modern kitchen island lighting?
Kitchen accessories look great in threes; odd numbers can work wonders when it comes to lighting too – low-hanging pendants, globes, or shades – they can all complement your island, depending on the material it is made from. One luxurious way to illuminate a marble island is to have a single chandelier, with all those exposed bulbs the reflection on the marble is beautiful and could add to the perfect finish to your kitchen. These are very atmospheric, especially when installed on a dimmer switch so you can create your own mood in an instant.
Another, aesthetic joy to behold is cluster lighting which works very well with low-hung ceilings creating depth and style above your island space. The width of the lighting means it doesn’t have to drop down too far and impact on the height between island and ceiling. Cluster lights cast a softer glow across the room compared to harsher lighting from other styles.
