Kitchen island lighting has the opportunity to create the 'wow' factor you're looking for.
One of the first things people comment on when they walk into my kitchen is the lighting. A nod to my love of wine, two huge glass demijohns hang over the island.
Pair two glass pendant lights over the kitchen island for designer style.
When it comes to choosing kitchen island lights, I say, go big or go home!
If you're in the market for something similar, here are some of my favorites from Lamps Plus:
This huge glass chandelier is made with fifty two vintage glass bottles! It will definitely give your kitchen a 'wow' factor, while still being more understated than a crystal chandelier.
This sleek light comes complete with Edison bulbs and perfectly marries vintage and industrial styles. The rectangular shape makes it perfect for a kitchen island.
Picture two of these large lantern style pendants as the cherry hanging atop an island. The glass-less design gives these traditional lights an instant update.
Add a bit of bling with this gold foil pendant light which pairs perfectly with brass accessories or be daring and mix it with silver, pewter or bronze knobs and drawer pulls.
Glass blossoms would bring glamour to any kitchen, popping against a background of colorful cabinets.
When it comes to choosing island lighting for your kitchen, have fun with it and don’t forget the fun 'wow' factor opportunity.
