New Kitchen Lighting Trends

Lighting trends come and go, with some lasting for several years while others are very popular and then disappear suddenly. At Lighting Inc., we can help you identify which styles are best for your home.

Island Pendants

Kitchen islands have been a mainstay in modern homes for many years, but island lighting has changed quite a bit in the past decade. For any island in 2021, think about adding an oversized rectangular pendant and replacing any single or multi-point pendants you currently have. Linear pendants are also a great choice, as they introduce clean, solid lines to your lighting design.

Kitchen Chandeliers

A chandelier might seem like an odd choice for a kitchen, but if you’re spending more time in this room than you are in your living room or family room, why not have a larger light fixture in the center of the room? If your kitchen doesn’t have an island in the center of it, you can add a chandelier in the middle of the ceiling to provide ambient lighting for the entire space. As far as fixture style, you can choose from a number of different options, including something more industrial-looking or something more traditional.

Under Cabinet Lighting

No kitchen is complete without under cabinet lighting, and if you’ve been living without it until now, this can be the year to add it. There are a number of great under cabinet fixture options, ranging from LED pucks and tape to hardwired ballasts and light bars. Under cabinet lights will illuminate your countertops for the ideal task lighting, and you can also use them as accent lights to make the kitchen brighter and more inviting.
