Our Favourite: Kitchen Lighting

Today’s round up comes out of necessity as my kitchen light went on the blink recently, which has made cooking at night interesting / experimental as you can barely see what you’re making and had to rely on the palrty light from the cooker hood.

Under threat of replacement, it flickered back into action, but I don’t trust it to hold out (or be particularly safe), and to be honest I’m quite keen to get rid of the clunky silver spotlights.  As we have a small galley kitchen, with only one little window, I’ve been looking at glass and metal pendants to bring brightness to the small area, and also at billiard table pendants (with 2 to 3 lights in a row) for added wattage.

Here’s the shortlist I’m mulling over, and you can see the long-list on our kitchen lighting Pinterest board.


1. Copper pendant light £92 (free p&p) 2. Cloche light £98 / £110 (£8.50 p&p) 3. Unfold Pendant £119 (free delivery) 4. Industrial brass hanging lamp £94.80 (£13 p&p) 5. Fluted Glass Duo Pendant Light 7. Chrome pendant ceiling shade £74.95 (£7.50 p&p) 8. Nea Double Arm Pendant Light £199 (£5.95 p&p)

    I’m sure I don’t know what you mean, Mother dear; two years is par for the course when it comes to implementing a kitchen lighting strategy.
