5 Ideas For Modern Kitchen Island Lighting

Date Published: April 17th, 2020

Kitchen islands, if you’re lucky enough to have one, really are standout features in the room. They can be useful preparation spaces when cooking, a dining table when serving up meals or simply a place to enjoy your morning coffee. Below are five modern ways in which you can utilise modern lighting to make your kitchen island stand out even more.

Modern & Bold

Modernist style in the home can be interpreted in a number of ways. From concrete pendant lights to simple spotlights, the way you decorate can be modern in its own way. At the moment, light greys and earthy tones are making a rather large impact in terms of kitchen interiors. By using lighting that accentuates your style, you can really draw the eye to the island in the right way. For example, if you’re looking to showcase marble surfaces, try and include glass lighting fixtures, which will provide more light to the area and look classic yet modern.

Pendant Lighting

Pendant lights come in all shapes and sizes and never truly go out of style. Choosing small pendant lights in the kitchen not only draws the eye, but they don’t dominate the space like larger fixtures. Our Endon Lighting Willis Glass LED Pendant Lights are the perfect mix of style and size, and will highlight your kitchen island perfectly.

Undercabinet Lighting

Using undercabinet lighting on your kitchen island will not only bring your attention to the middle of the room, but it will also make it seem larger in size and brighter to the eye. One positive for using this type of lighting is that it’s not too expensive to create the design yourself. We offer DIY plinth kits that enable you to install under cabinet lighting the way you want to.

Set The Mood

The colour and tone of your lighting can either make or break a room. Whether you’re after bright white light or something a little more tonal to set a mood, choose the right bulbs and accessories for the job. If you’re looking for something a little more versatile, connect a dimmer to your light in order to have greater control over the brightness.
