Pendant lighting

Kitchen lighting can be both functional and decorative. Pendant lighting over islands or peninsulas  can change the overall look of your kitchen and add a focal point with minimal expense. Light over the island is not only functional, but beautiful . People using recessed lights throughout the kitchen can  introduce some color and style over the island. Choosing the size and style of your new pendant lighting depends on both the size of the island and the overall size of your kitchen.
You can also consider a decorative fixture with three lights. A trio over an island provides good light, breaking up the kitchen while still seeing through it.
The top trends in decorative finishes include wrought iron, often in rust or other earth tones. Painted finishes are also popular. Colored glass bypasses plain white in popularity. Pewter and satin nickel finishes replace the basic brass look.
