Kitchen Island Lighting 101

Ah. The magic of the kitchen island. It is one of the most used pieces of real estate in your kitchen. Here you prep meals for the family, you sign permission forms and go through the mail. It’s a busy and special place in the home. And the best part is, it’s one of the easiest and most fun places to play with your lighting design. 

To give your kitchen a quick pick me up just change out your pendant lighting over your island with our quick tips. 

What’s On the Ceiling?

Depending on how your kitchen island listing was planned you may have one main electrical boxes or multiple. If you have one main electrical box you can still have that multiple pendant look (without changing your wiring) but you will want to make sure that the fixture you select offers a long canopy to accommodate the multiple pendants. 

If you are building your home, you may have more options to play with in regards to wiring above your kitchen island. Talk with your builder to see what your options are.

Sizing

When determining the size of your lighting fixtures for your kitchen island lighting it is incredibly important to know the length of your island and your ceiling height. No one wants to be bumping their head on a light while trying to cook dinner!

How Much Light Do You Need

Generally people prefer their kitchens to be bright with lots of light. When selecting your kitchen island lighting you want to pay attention to the shade of the lighting fixture. Metal shades will direct the light downwards giving you a ‘task lighting’ effect over your kitchen island. While open lights or clear glass shades will disperse the light in all directions working to illuminate more of the kitchen. Then there are white or opaque shades. These shades will illuminate more of your kitchen than a metal shade, but not as much as an open fixture or clear glass shades.

Feel Your Own Style:

This area of lighting should be where you can take a risk and bring out a little bit more personality to your kitchen. Whether that be something a little bit more vintage-inspired or something bright and bold. You can easily switch out these pendant lights when needing a refresh for your kitchen lighting.

Keep in mind other fixtures that may be in the sight line of your kitchen. You certainly don’t have to match everything together, but each fixture should compliment and flow with the others to create a cohesive look.

Lighting Trends to Watch in 2022

And just like that, a new year is upon us! 

After the whirlwind of 2020 and 2021, people have been seeking comfort within their homes. Which of course, has resulted in people taking more time and care into the design and function of their homes. We can’t wait to see more of these trends take hold as 2022 continues….

1 – Oversized Fixtures

Using an oversized lighting fixture as a design focus makes a bold statement. Oversized fixtures are also a great way to make a quick upgrade to your space without spending weeks (or months) on expensive (and disruptive) renovations.

2 – Linear Lighting

Fixtures that fall into the ‘linear lighting’ category often have simplified designs that exaggerate long lines. These fixtures are perfect for clients who are looking to keep things contemporary and minimalistic in their design.

3 – Incorporate Whimsy

After the past few years, its no wonder why people are craving a little bit of fun in their homes. In lighting we are seeing this manifest as a few different trends. From incorporating more colour into design, swapping out shades for a little change of scenery and even swapping out traditional bulbs for more fun bulbs. These are all little ways to change up your lighting fixtures with little time and financial investment.
