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

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
