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.
Contemporary style is one of the more popular design schemes used today but has been used in homes for many years. This sleek design style is known for its clean, straight lines when it comes to furnishings as well as for lighting options.
Ceiling Fans: Primarily used for practicality as opposed to beauty, ceiling fans are a great way to cool a room down and brighten it up at the same time. They are often used in bedrooms, though they come in handy where there’s a lot of activity, including playrooms and home gyms. They also make great outdoor light fixtures for a covered patio or sunroom.
The most common form of ceiling lighting is the basic dome light also know as a flush mount ceiling light. These are great for basic lighting of a small room. These do not provide much task lighting it is primarily used to for basic lighting needs. Most lighting manufactures have several sizes of these and the most common ones have anywhere from 1 to 3 light bulbs. One great form of ceiling lighting. Is the Recessed Can light. This is very versital and can be used for task lighting, accent lighting or task lighting. Recessed lights have many variations in baffles and lenses. The most common type is your standard baffle trim. The baffle provides ambiant room lighting. You can create task lighting with the cans by adding a spot also commonly known as an eyeball. You can focus the light with these on a area to creating a working area or you can high light a piece of artwork or furniture.
