My kitchen is the center of my home for productivity and socialising. It’s where my family gathers around the kitchen bench.  From cooking, dining, and entertaining friends we certainly spend a lot of time there so it is essential that I have excellent overhead lighting in my Kitchen.  Today, I am going to share with you some tips and inspiration on what to look for when choosing pendant lights for your kitchen.

 Choose Your Style

What determines the look and style of your kitchen than with the lighting you choose.  The perfect lighting design you choose must not only be functional but complement your kitchen space too.  Select a pendant light that matches the style of your kitchen.

Whether it’s Contemporary,  Vintage, Hampton’s Style, or a Modern Farmhouse kitchen there are many pendant lights to choose from at Temple & Webster.

Size, Height & Shape

When choosing what size pendant light to use, consider the proportions of the space in your kitchen.  An undersized pendant will look insignificant, while a larger fitting will dominate your kitchen space.

To help you decide on the right pendant light, measure your lights and cut out a cardboard replica to hang.  This will give you an idea of the size and proportion of your new light in your kitchen.
