6 Stunning Kitchen Pendant Lights You Can Buy Right Now
Posted on May 23 2016
Kitchen lighting requires the careful consideration of two purposes. Ideally, it should illuminate the work surfaces where you conduct most of your preparation, and it should provide welcoming ambiance during dinner or evening hours. Pendants fill a special role in the kitchen, in addition to the two requirements mentioned previously – kitchen pendants are the preferred choice for decorators who want to make a creative statement in an otherwise utilitarian space, filling in the emptiness between the countertops and ceiling with suspended works of art. If you're looking for kitchen inspiration, this modern lighting guide might help!
