Kitchens are the heart and soul of any home. They are the rooms where scrumptious food is cooked with love every day and families share food, warmth, stories and happiness at the dining table. Kitchens are often neglected in terms of décor and aesthetics by many because the focus is usually on decorating the living room and creating a good impression. But what about the kitchen which exudes warmth and unites the entire family for meals during the day? Giving your kitchen contemporary lighting and the latest décor might be exactly what is needed for your house and I will let you in on all the ways to go about it.
Sometimes, the most important feature of any room is conveniently forgotten and in a kitchen, that happens to be lighting. Lighting plays an essential role in setting the mood right and we have a multitude of options waiting to adorn our kitchens. For those who wish to go simple and traditional, lanterns are a handy choice. Copper mounts add a level of sophistication but nothing ups the game like a classy chandelier. Glass orbs can be chosen if one wishes to be unique yet beautiful while glass lanterns can be used to make a fantastic style statement. In fact, due to the sheer popularity of lanterns, many designers have gone ahead and recreated this traditional lighting technique by infusing a modern touch to it. Some examples include vintage lanterns, detailed printed lanterns, lantern rows and so on. Chandeliers are also available in a number of variants like faceted ones, candle bar, wire-basket, twig chandeliers, etc.
Lampshades are also available in different prints like floral, vintage, industrial, etc. Antique lights are always a good choice for those who do not prefer overly fancy options. Each one of these provides a different feel to the kitchen and this is exactly what will make one’s kitchen stand out from the rest.
Having a well-lit kitchen with beautiful, unique lights is the first step towards creating a masterpiece of a kitchen. Décor makes or breaks any room and this is why one must hand over the reins to an experienced designer who can channel the owner’s likes into beautiful designs and lighting that complement his/her personality. After all, nothing beats the beauty of a well-crafted interior and every meal becomes extra special with new modern lighting surrounding you, doesn’t it?
