HomeThangs.com has made their goal to deliver the right product to the consumer, with that in mind, shopping and home design tips, as well as special product selections are being introduced.
With kitchens trending larger and larger and the move toward more open floor plans, they are increasingly becoming the center of the home.Large kitchen islands, rather than separate dining areas, allow entertaining while cooking and cleaning. With that in mind, HomeThangs has introduced a selection of kitchen island light s to make the kitchen look more exciting.
Right kitchen lighting will make a large kitchen seem cozy and inviting. Prominently placed island lights showcase the personality and the tastes of the owner, giving a personal, signature touch to the space.
With a ton of different island light styles out there – there’s one for every taste, although choosing the right one might not be that easy.
1. To add a little whimsy to the kitchen space, something that’s a little more than just an average island-sized pendant light would do it. For example the trio of Chadwick Island Lights 66145-3 by Landmark Lighting,– their milk-bucket style is simple, but perfect for adding a little pizzazz to a country style kitchen.
2. For a modern kitchen, something like the Molecular Chandelier 30025/15 from Elk Lighting would be a good choice. Shaped in the form of a molecule and combining a sleek chrome finish with incandescent glass lights, this is much more than just an average island light.
3. For the urban loft style space, a lighting fixture with a wink and a nod toward upscale nightlife and snazzy hotels would fit, such as the Cortina 12-Light Chandelier 30020/12 by Elk Lighting for instsnce.
4. For a host that’s good with a cocktail shaker, something like the Martini Glass Chandelier 3654/6 by Elk Lighting is a way to poke fun at entertaining.
5. Alcohol-inspired island lights are more common than one might think, especially when it comes to the fruit of the vine. The Napa 6-Light Chandelier 15062/6 by Elk Lighting is pure vineyard style, and actually doubles as a wine rack. It has space enough to keep six of the favorite vintages close at hand, along with a full set of wine glasses.
6. To have the spotlight on the favorite wines, the Collector’s Chandelier 93-139 from Sterling might be more up the alley. Two lights illuminate the bottles from the inside, creating a focal point for the kitchen island.
7. For the outdoorsy or a rustic kitchen style one can’t go wrong with Tiffany. The leaf-patterned Latham Chandelier 08016-TBH from Landmark Lighting for example, is made with a Tiffany glass shade and a bronze, lantern-style lamp accented with coils of vines and leaves. Part rustic and part elegant, this signature island light marries a foresty palette with a slightly feminine touch.
8. A Tiffany style lighting fixture would be a match for a cottage style kitchen as well.
The Iron Birdcage Pendant Light 123-006 by Sterling has a nature-inspired touch to it, with soft pastel leaves and delicate pink rosettes. Where the Tiffany chandelier is elegant, this island light is all whimsy and charm, would suit someone who loves gardens and hosting tea.
9. To make that kitchen even more personal, HomeThangs offers a whole collection of novelty pendant lights by Elk Lighting, ranging from skateboard pendant lights to the starship Enterprise island lights and everything in between, Novelty Motorcycle Pendant Light 5093/3 is one of them. It’s certainly a bold choice, and maybe better suited for a home bar or secondary entertaining area.
Whatever your taste or personal style, there’s an island light out there not only to suit the space, but to make it personal.
