When it comes to building a new kitchen, many homeowners spend a lot of time focusing on the appliances, cabinets, and finding the perfect color of paint for the walls. While those are important aspects of kitchen design, it’s also important to not forget about the lighting. Some homeowners neglect the lighting because they’re not sure which style is best for their kitchen.
At Lighting One, our affiliated showrooms can help you find the perfect fixtures. The staff at your local showroom can explain the differences between styles such as Art Deco, Industrial, and Transitional. Before you know it, you’ll have the ideal lights for your new kitchen!
Transitional lighting is one of those styles that can be hard to pin down when it comes to a certain look. Basically, this style falls between traditional (classic) and modern light fixtures. They tend not to be as ornamental as more traditional lights, but not quite as clean and “minimalist” as more contemporary options.
Transitional lights in the kitchen can be placed above the island in the form of pendants, above the breakfast nook in the form of a mini chandelier, or simply on the ceiling in the form of an ambient fixture.
Art Deco Lighting
Gaining prominence in the 1920s and 30s, Art Deco design influenced everything from lighting to architecture. Grand fixtures could be found in theaters and restaurants, and eventually homes. Art Deco incorporates many geometric shapes and repetitive lines, and light fixtures of this style can look great in your kitchen.
Art Deco lighting can also add a touch of glamour to your kitchen. Depending on the size and layout of the room, you can find Art Deco hanging fixtures that take up a prominent place on the ceiling and provide amazing light for the entire space.
Industrial lighting tends to have a clean and almost mechanical look, with many bare bulbs and metallic accents. There is little to no ornamentation on industrial fixtures, so if you’re going for that simple, streamlined look for your kitchen, then industrial lights could be the perfect choice.
If you want to add pendants with bulbs that are enclosed in wire cages, or if you want the wide illumination of a single bulb topped by a metallic shade, be sure to look for Industrial lighting at your local Lighting One member showroom.
