Whatever the size and shape of your kitchen, good lighting is key to its success, both practically and visually. As you would need to clearly see your prepping and cooking stations, highlighting work surfaces, the sink, cooker and hob is especially important. Trend-wise, the industrial look is still all the rage in 2017, with everything from bright coppery tones to dark antique bronze. Here’s a list of our favourites.
The Tower 6 Light Cluster pendant from Där Lighting over a dining table or island unit makes for an eye-catching feature that will offer instant impact. With a height that’s adjustable to a maximum of 1.3 metres, it will frame vintage-style bulbs and hang beautifully. Priced at £119
A new interpretation of the billiard table lamp, TAF Architects give us the Ambit Rail for Muuto. Made up of three aluminium pendants in one row, it’s ideal for shedding light onto a long, linear island, dining table or even a breakfast bar. Priced at £469
The Lawrence pendant from Pooky combines two trends – a stone outer and copper interior, seamlessly bringing together metallics and natural elements. Priced at £145
Available in transparent, light green, grey, brown and light blue, the Ribe pendant lamp from Urbanara is crafted from coral mouth-blown glass with a contrasting coloured cord. Priced at £125
Hang pairs of Factorylux Galvanised Industrial lamp shades over a workbench, island or dining table for an old-school look, ideal for both classic and contemporary kitchen schemes. Priced at £140
Mouth-blown glass shades are a popular choice this year, and why not? They are simple yet stylish. Available in grey or transparent, the Unika by Northern Lighting is a striking example – it’s sleek and the pared-back style fits into an industrial or contemporary setting. Priced at £199 for a 10.5cm size and £233 for 14cm
Instead of a cluster of small ones go big with the iconic Original 1227 collection from Anglepoise. They are available in dove grey, linen white, jet black, alpine white and chrome with different coloured braids to add further interest. Priced at £135
Add a touch of bling in the kitchen with the Original BTC Walter ceiling light in brass with anthracite glass. Priced at £379 for a size 2
