The is­land is a sta­ple of mod­ern kitchen de­sign — and the light­ing you choose to en­hance this sta­ple is equally im­por­tant. As you’re shop­ping, browse all the op­tions and don’t be afraid to ex­per­i­ment.

PEN­DANT LIGHTS

Pen­dants are one of the most pop­u­lar and flex­i­ble op­tions on the kitchen­light­ing mar­ket. But just be­cause they’re the stan­dard doesn’t mean they have to be bor­ing. If af­ford­able and sim­ple are part of your recipe for kitchen suc­cess, spice things up by hang­ing the pen­dants at dif­fer­ent heights, which will vary the in­ten­sity of the light and cut down on big shad­ows — both key in­gre­di­ents to ef­fec­tive task light­ing.

POT RACK LIGHT­ING

If you’re one of those cooks who likes to pre­pare a feast with uten­sils that are within arms’ reach and if you don't want to sac­ri­fice that con­vinience

for ex­tra light, a pot rack chan­de­lier could solve all your meal-prep woes. And if you’re the lucky owner of enough eye-catch­ing cop­per cook­ware, this style of fix­ture will help you shine a spot­light on your col­lec­tion.

DOU­BLE LIGHT FIX­TURES

Want to get the most bang for your buck? Then a two-for-one deal might be the way to go. Look to fix­tures that boast two lamps from a sin­gle elec­tri­cal socket, like a dou­ble-lamp bar light. Two gen­er­ously sized lights will help cast a wide swath of even, di­rect light onto the sur­face below.
