If the kitchen is the heart of the home, the island is the heart of the kitchen. It’s often at the center of the kitchen layout, making it not just a visual focal point, but a natural gathering spot and meal prep space. All of this means that choosing the right kitchen island lighting is crucial to designing a functional and beautiful kitchen. If you’re currently searching for inspiration for your kitchen island lighting, here are a few gorgeous ideas we’ve gathered from both our own archives and around the internet.
A large kitchen with high ceilings means you can choose almost any style lighting for your space. We loved choosing beautiful chandeliers for this Wellesley, Massachusetts home — they give the room a more glamorous feel and make the transition to the adjacent living space more seamless.
We love this coastal kitchen designed by Waterview Kitchens in Florida. The industrial-style spotlight pendants give this seaside space a contemporary touch.
This kitchen is sleeker, smaller, and more contemporary, which calls for island lights that match. We chose two simple, translucent pendant lights for this kitchen remodel in Swampscott, Massachusetts.
For a smaller kitchen island, sometimes a singular, but larger light fixture works just fine, like this polished nickel chandelier by Visual Comfort in a Long Island home.
In this kitchen on Cape Cod, colonial-style island lights contribute to the subtle beachy theme of this traditional brass and blue kitchen.
