Kitchen Island LightingKitchen Island Lighting

One of the classic areas for enhancing with lighting is your kitchen island. It's a place where people sit and chat, but it's also a centrepiece to a kitchen, so it's perfect for either a main lighting feature or a set of lights. 

How to Approach the Kitchen Island Lighting

When it comes to the main light above your island you can go with either one main light, or, as is often the case with kitchen islands, numerous light pendants; three being the classic number to use.

Things to Consider When Choosing Your Kitchen Island Lights

First off, the one thing that is often overlooked is size. You really want to get the dimensions right with your lights. If the light or lights are too big, they will overwhelm the island. Too small and they will lose the wow factor. We would recommend ensuring there is a comfortable gap between the light or lights and the edge of the kitchen island. For instance, if your island is 1500mm wide, leave at least 250mm either side of the light to help with the proportions. 

Spacing Between The Lights

Make sure you give the lights plenty of 'breathing space' if you are having multiple lights. Also make sure that if you have anything else above the kitchen island, such as your extractor fan, that they are not too close to the lights. Again, otherwise you are at risk of the light losing impact. 

Kitchen Island LightingKitchen Style

You do want to try to match up your lights with the rest of your kitchen.  If it's a centrepiece you will get a bit of freedom to choose the style you want, but it will help the interior design if it is in keeping with the rest of the room. If you have a modern kitchen style, think about chrome ceiling lights. If it's a more traditional kitchen, then perhaps a brass ceiling light would be more in keeping. 

If you are redecorating your whole kitchen, why not take a look into our sister company, Flat Pack Kitchens! 

Go Bold?

For many it's about the subtle elegance, like the polished copper ceiling light below, but for those who want to go a little more bold there are plenty of options too. Going for one main ceiling light fitting, like the rustic Symbol petrol copper ceiling light, is a bold move, but not one you will regret. It'll be a fabulous looking talking point, and with three bulbs within the light fitting. 

You can also take an alternative approach, like the black Tower light fitting below. It's a cluster of lights, and goes perfectly with vintage LED bulbs too
