Lighting is an important element of a kitchen as it’s the heart of the home. We spend a lot of time in this space preparing food, snacking, and gathering with friends and family. The kitchen also holds many of my memories: like the first time I showed my daughter to bake a cake. Therefore, the perfect lighting for your kitchen island will set the tone for your entire home.
To determine the number of pendants needed above your kitchen island, consider the room size and pendants. The technique of using odd numbers allows for a distribution of symmetrical weight and light.
Here are some of my favorite images that feature pendant lighting above a kitchen island. I did a lot of research to find the most creative examples.
Below are pendant fixtures similar to the ones in the images below.
- LANROS Farmhouse Kitchen Pendant.
- SEEBLEN 2- Light Indoor Island Pendant.
- AKEZON Indoor Glass Hanging Light.
Technically not an island
While this setup isn’t technically a kitchen island, it caught my eyes. These pendants shine lights on an area perfect for eating and conversation starters.
Matching Glass Pendants
This huge area allows four matching pendants to fit. It looks amazing and can hold many people.
Pendants Mix With Hanging Plants
Hanging lights adds beautiful decor to your kitchen. This small kitchen has one pendant that offers enough lighting.
Pendants In A White Kitchen
This is an excellent choice for an island light, especially for a little island, because it is modern without being too “bold.” These pendants may work in a variety of kitchen styles and colors, like the example above.
Black And Gold Pendants
Provided you enjoy black and gold pendants, which I do if it isn’t overdone, this is a pendant light fixture to think about. It’s a simple design that doesn’t take over the kitchen but provides intrigue over the island.
This specific lighting fixture is an intriguing blend of elegance and vintage, two apparently opposing elements that work well together.
Just Three Pendants
If you love simple pendants then these will greatly improve your kitchen. From the fixture to the lights, it’s a streamlined design in every way.
This lighting fixture is everything but inconspicuous. From the dazzling hanging glass, these pendants are the best I have seen so far.
Here you see the two clear pendants that look perfect in the aesthetic of this kitchen.
Different Shape Pendants
It’s a modern design filled with recessed lighting and pendants. You’ll enjoy this mix of shapes and sizes.
