It’s such a beautiful and spacious kitchen. You can easily have three people stand between the island and wall cabinets.
Kitchen island pendant light ideas
There are some things she still wants to do in here. She wants to replace the hardware and faucet and also add some pendant lighting over the island but I think it’s perfect just the way it is.
My friend had asked me if I could just add some lighting in Photoshop since she wasn’t sure yet what to get. I thought it would be fun to just show some options here on my blog, to show you how different kitchen island pendant lighting can make a space look and feel.
So here are some different options and looks:
Mixing metallic finishes in a kitchen
I think a lot of people are afraid of mixing different metals in a kitchen but I say go for it. It doesn’t all need to be matchy matchy and I happen to love a nice mix in metallics.
I’ve always been a huge fan of the Hicks pendants and I think they would perfect in this kitchen too. They are a metal combination of rubbed bronze like the hardware and the gold. She could keep the hardware and get the gold faucet she’s been dreaming about.
You can also see that the stainless steel isn’t throwing anything off with the mix of metals.
Only one lightbox above island
The last light option is perfect for only one ceiling light wiring like they have here in my friends kitchen. If you don’t want to spend the money on getting an electrician to rewire and patch your ceiling then this type of lighting might be for you. It goes perfectly with the rubbed bronze even though it is black metal. Her staircase threads and railing on the other side also happens to be stained black so lighting number 2 and 4 might be a good solution to cary the black throughout the downstairs.
In case you are wondering about the flooring. It is Fusion Hybrid Barnwood Gray (HERE) vinyl plank flooring and very durable. It looks like beautiful real wood.
I really love the glossy gray subway tiles too.
Look at my friend’s puppy Abby in the kitchen. She matches!
And I have to share my friends other cute puppy Harry with you hiding in-between the sofa cushions. I mean how could I not, right?
Look at that sweat face!
I hope you enjoyed todays tour and inspiration and I’m hoping she’ll let me share the rest of the house with you one day soon.
