Pendant lighting is a must for most kitchens. Since most kitchens are quite uniform in colour and tend to be bright, pendant lights go a long way to making the room more inviting.


A pendant light has a single bulb with an intricate lampshade covering it. While these lampshades tend to be designed for decoration, they will also change the color and temperature of the light coming from the bulb inside. You can use them to illuminate a particular spot in your kitchen or to spread light throughout the whole room.

While pendant lights only have one bulb, they tend not to come alone. You will normally see them in groups of two or three.  The most common use for them is to illuminate the countertops in the central region of the kitchen. Another use could be over your dining table if it’s in the same room as your kitchen
