We spend a lot of time in the kitchen, whether relaxing, working or cooking. This is why a room like the kitchen needs good lighting for all these different occasions. Every kitchen should have three types of lighting – basic lighting, task lighting and mood lighting. The kitchen needs good lighting so that you can get an overview of the kitchen itself and its shelves and cabinets. We have fixtures to suit every type of kitchen lighting and we've put together some inspiration below to help you find the right fixture for your kitchen in terms of style, bulb choice and different types of kitchen lighting.
Kitchen pendants - classic, vintage or modern?
When it comes to kitchen tables and pendants, remember to keep the hanging height in mind. As a rule of thumb, the light fixture needs to be 75-80cm from the tabletop to ensure optimal working light. To avoid shadows, measure the width of the surface and divide by 3. Use the resulting measurement from the wall - this is where the pendant should hang to avoid shadows. Of course, this is just a general suggestion and it's likely your home will require a different setup. You are welcome to contact us at any time for advice on installation and bulb selection.
It is best to install multiple bulbs side by side with a little gap between each other as this ensures an even glow. There are many options for using pendants in the kitchen, and they are available in a variety of styles.
