Your home is your sanctuary and the kitchen is the heart of the home, in this post we’ll discuss the different kinds of farmhouse kitchen lighting. There are many different styles that this can include from modern, to industrial, shabby chic, and more.
It’s important to pay attention to the details while designing or building your home. It’s important to pick pieces that compliment the space, pieces that will add depth, and tell your story. Lighting is just one aspect of this but it’s an important detail that shouldn’t be overlooked.
There are a couple of things to keep in mind when picking out your farmhouse kitchen lighting.
- The idea behind it (is your light fixture going to add to the story you’re trying to tell or take away from it?)
With these three things in mind, let’s get to it!
For a Rustic Design:
If you have a home that has a rustic design you’ll want to pick out a light fixture or chandelier that continues that story through the details of your house. This includes picking something that is made out of wood and has that old-timey feel to it.
For example, this is a beautiful rustic chandelier with an iconic lantern silhouette. Imagine this hanging above your dining table. It should add character to the space, the open design of this light fixture will create a sense of ease and rustic charm.
This is another great farmhouse kitchen lighting piece to compliment your rustic design. The iron crisscross adds depth, texture, and is a wonderful nod to the style of barn doors.
It’s important to choose a light fixture that matches your home. Playing with tones is a great way to do this. Some who have a dark color palette will use light accents like this barn house pendant light to keep a little bit of warmth. While others will keep the same color theme throughout their appliances and other details.
These are two other very farmhouse rustic light pendants. The previous ones would look great in a more modern design. Whereas these would compliment a true rustic style. These enhance the story of the design as the both have a very aged look to them
For Industrial Styles:
Industrial light fixtures are meant to create an aesthetic statement. They can have a lot of variation in style and concept, but the beauty of industrial is iron details. The exposed metal reinforces the urban and inventive style.
This is such a creative light fixture! You are able to adjust each one of the lights to get the desired look and length for the lights. The design of this chandelier was actually inspired by the model of an atom. The industrial style is about being creative and getting inspired, it’s inventive and pushes the bounds. This is a piece that deserves to hang above your dining table or kitchen island.
This is another innovative show stopper. The design and flow of this pendant light is stunning. It has a beautiful rhythm and concept, the lights give off a warm glow that reflects off the metal warming the space that it’s placed in.
Kitchen lighting shouldn’t be something that you overlook in the design and aesthetic of your home. The light fixture that you choose will be an eyecatching centerpiece that people will comment on and be a talking point. You want to make sure that you find something that represents your style and tells your home’s story.
