Many homeowners these days are opting for transitional kitchens, and old warehouse style lights have both that rustic, antique flair and enough modern edginess that they don’t look overly ornate or outdated.

Restaurant style pendant lights are the go-to option for a kitchen island, but bigger, bolder fixtures can help make this central gathering space really stand out. Restored and replica factory lights are a particularly popular option right now, because they have a practical, functional look and feel that fits well with an oft-used kitchen, but have just a touch of whimsy that adds charm and personality to the space. Homethangs.com has introduced a new guide to choosing and using one of these unique lighting fixtures.
Traditional glass pendant lights are very petite and work as targeted accent lights that are often designed to blend into the background. Installing a large, hefty light over a kitchen island instead will draw the eye to the space, visually anchoring the island and giving it a place of importance in the kitchen. But many traditional large fixtures – like chandeliers – are a little too ornate for the average contemporary home. Industrial inspired fixtures offer the same size and weight, but without the pomp and circumstance; they’re often done in weathered finishes, and made out of simple materials without a lot of embellishment. The details that are there are often functional ones – like pulleys, retractable arms, or accordion style frames – which have a charmingly old fashioned feel, but add practical functionality and a very down to earth look and feel.
