Where Kitchen Lighting Works Best Whether you are eating breakfast or balancing the checkbook, kitchen ceiling lights are a sure way to brighten up your table. Chandelier light fixtures and pendants for the kitchen come in a variety of sizes and shapes too, ranging from smaller designs for the breakfast nook to robust pieces to gracefully hang over the dining table. If you have an island in your space, track lighting and monorail systems can add some much needed style over an otherwise flat, uninteresting surface. Or, consider stringing together multiple mini pendant lights to provide a much-appreciated amount of illumination. And, if the days get a little too hot, why not combine the functionality of a light and a fan together with a ceiling fan with an integrated light kit. Ceiling fans help keep the room fresh (especially helpful in the kitchen) and most are able to operate all year long. Finally, if your kitchen has limited ceiling-to-floor height, you’ll appreciate the selection of flushmounts and recessed lighting. Kitchen Lighting Ideas for Every Style Whether your kitchen is brilliantly modern or modestly traditional, the lighting in this assortment aim to fit their way into any style of kitchen. In classic kitchens decorated with traditional decor items, you’ll love the options from Kichler and ELK Lighting. Transitional kitchens benefit from Feiss, including well-designed flushmounts, pendants and sconces. Consider pendants from Bocci for an eye-catching look and if you love that expertly modern appeal, you’ll want to take a look at Tech Lighting or LBL. Lastly, to achieve an energy efficient kitchen, be sure to see the LED kitchen lighting available. LED light fixtures are eco-friendly, long-lasting and bright, making them an ideal choice for kitchens. Choosing the Best Kitchen Lighting Selecting the best lighting for your kitchen requires careful attention to the function of a light fixture. You first need to determine whether you need functional, workspace lighting or more ambient fixtures. And in a space like the kitchen where task lighting is welcomed and appreciated, you will want to review the lumens of any design you are interested in to have an understanding of how bright it is. Before choosing any type of fixture, thoroughly measure your kitchen to decide how big (or how small) of a light fixture the room can accommodate. Keep in mind important sizing dimensions like height, width, depth and weight. Finally, try to choose colors and finishes of lighting that will complement existing furniture and decorative pieces in the room to create space that is consistent and cohesive.

Other Great Options This may seem like common sense, but cooking at night can be difficult without proper lighting. Still, many people find themselves in the dark. For those counter spaces left in shadow from cabinets or appliances, under cabinet lights are ready to illuminate, thus expanding your working area to its intended, comfortable size. Look to the complete Legrand Adorne line to create a contemporary under cabinet lighting look in your kitchen. After one dinner, you’ll wonder how you ever managed without undercabinet lights! And to support a bit of versatility with your kitchen’s lighting, consider placing your fixtures on light dimmers.

Where Modern Ceiling Lights Work Best As it casts ambient light downward from the uppermost point of a space, ceiling lighting is an essential component in the layering of interior lighting in most rooms including kitchens, dining rooms, living rooms and bedrooms. Ceiling light fixtures pair with the lighting provided by portable lamps and wall sconces to offer comprehensive illumination. However, ceiling lights can also be useful in areas where other light fixtures would be inconvenient, such as with kitchen lighting (where counter space is often at a premium) or with hallway lighting where the area is often narrow. In grand entryways, ceiling lights can become a conversation piece for your guests, while a luxury-exuding chandelier is the centerpiece over the dining table and a cluster of mini pendants makes the kitchen island welcoming for friends and family. In the bedroom, flush ceiling lights serve a functional purpose while also offering significant style and you will love the selection of recessed lighting for rooms where ceiling height is limited. Wherever you may need a ceiling light in your home, you will find the perfect option in this assortment. A Ceiling Light Fixture for Every Style Ceiling lights are able to fit a variety of interior design styles. From mid-century modern ceiling lights to transitional and traditional ceiling lamps, there is a ceiling light guaranteed to fit your home’s decor. In retro-styled spaces, you will want to see the mid-century modern ceiling lights from chic designer Jonathan Adler, including his signature Sputnik Chandelier and Meurice Chandelier. Or choose an iconic Saucer Pendant from the Goerge Nelson Bubble Lamp collection. In rooms where a luxury piece is a necessity, look to the statement-making crystal chandeliers from Schonbek Lighting. Wrought iron ceiling lights from Hubbardton Forge put high-quality, hand-forged design on display and if you like the organic look of a wood ceiling light, look to the veneer pendants available from LZF. Finally, to fit more transitional home decor, take a look at the variety of chandeliers, low profile ceiling lights and pendants from Hudson Valley Lighting. Choosing the Best Ceiling Lights Ceiling lights are available in numerous sizes and it is important for you to understand where the fixture is going to be placed. Do you have a lot of ceiling real estate? If so, you will like a chandelier or pendant light. If not, you will find recessed lighting (sometimes referred to as can lights or high hat lights) or flush mount lighting to be more beneficial for a low clearance solution. When shopping for a new ceiling light, be sure to view the sizing dimensions to properly gauge the fixture’s width, height and cable suspension length. You’ll also need to appropriately measure the area of the ceiling where you plan to install a new fixture. And choose styles, colors and finishes that will fit in seamlessly with the rest of your home’s decor. Lastly, review the fixture’s light bulb requirement to be prepared with bulbs at installation. If you have any questions about the ceiling lights featured here, please call our lighting experts at 877.445.4486. Other Great Options Energy efficiency can be achieved for your home with the use of an LED ceiling light. Ceiling light fixtures with an LED light source are environmentally friendly and are proven to be long-lasting and efficient. Check out the contemporary LED ceiling light options from SONNEMAN Lighting and Pablo Lighting for fixtures that are both efficient and stylish. And control mood lighting with your ceiling lights by placing them on a dimmer. Dimmer controls and switches are easy to install and you will notice an immediate impact to the overall character of your space.
