The Light of My Life/Kitchen

Wednesday, August 20, 2014

Since you were all such a huge help and since it was so much fun hearing your thoughts and ideas on our kitchen cabinets, lets see what you think of the lighting ideas. Here's the kitchen cabinets that got the most votes (if you need some inspiration when picking lighting). 
This ended up being the inspiration we used when picking out the countertops, floors and backsplash this past weekend. But now it's time to pick out our lighting! 

I found these five examples from the Ferguson website. This is the company that we will be getting all of our lighting from so I thought this was the perfect place to grab ideas. They have hundreds of lights on their website and even more in their showroom, so here are just a few that caught my eye. Below are five pennants that I thought might look nice in the kitchen above the island. Our island will be 8 feet long and will have two penant lights that hang over it. Once we choose the pennant lights, then I will pick matching lights for over the dining room table. Which of these lights would you pick for your kitchen, or should we choose for ours? 

Making all of these appointments is so much fun, and each vendor we've met with has been so different. Every time we go meet with one of them, there are hundreds of options! We meet with Ferguson's later tonight so please share your pick for favorite kitchen lighting to help is make our decisions!

  2. We were just at Ferguson's last week, except we were picking out our sinks and toilets instead of lights :) I really like the style of #3 and #5, but it's hard to tell how big they are from the picture, or if they come in different sizes. I would go with something pretty large, kind of like the size of the lights in your inspiration picture, because there are only two lights over a pretty long space. The smaller lights look better if you have 3 or 4 of them, and they would just end up looking out of place over a nice big island!

  4. I second what Ashlen said, I think you need something pretty large, and if they're small you need several more. Personally, we have lights in our kitchen with green shades (like the shades on lights over a billards table) and I LOVE the fun pop of color, so I would find something with a little color if it were me. Have fun!!
