Kitchen Island Lights

Your beautiful and functional kitchen island isn’t complete without a matching light fixture. When done right, kitchen island lighting enhances the ambience while providing effective task lighting at the same time. Your first consideration when choosing island lighting should be color and style. You’ll want to find a pendant, a chandelier or another form of lighting that complements the design of your kitchen. While your island lighting can become the main focal point of the room, if you already have a grand range hood or detailed backsplash that’s worthy of design envy, you may want your lights to simply draw the eyes to these instead.

Next comes the question of how many lights you should install. While this question may seem fairly straightforward, sometimes it can be complicated and cause your decision making process to come to a standstill. Typically in design you’ll want to follow the popular “rule of three,” which says that balance is achieved by repeating elements three times. You can easily utilize this idea by dangling three pendant lights or chandeliers over your kitchen island, but depending on the size and style of the lights you’ve chosen, this may not actually work well at all. If the scale of your island lighting is on the large side, if your island is smaller, or if you have both a small island and larger lighting to work with, you can opt for two or even one fixture instead of three.
