If your kitchen has an unfinished, insulated attic above it, the good news is that you can use the less expensive and easier-to-install recessed lights that are made to be used in new construction. The bad news is that there are additional challenges to installing these fixtures.
If there’s one place the worlds of form and function seamlessly meet it’s in the kitchen. And upgrading the lighting is an way to add a fresh dose of style and substance to the space. Even if you don’t have a major kitchen remodel in your future, a simple lighting swap — from adding some architectural track lighting to installing a dramatic chandelier — might be all it takes to upgrade the entire kitchen. Lighting is a lot like painting in that way: it can be an inexpensive, but impressive way to transform the room in a single afternoon.
Reviewers say these pendant lights look very luxe, yet come at an unbeatable price. Several people note they use the Globe Electric Angelica Pendants over their islands, sinks and counters, and many also say the industrial style of the lights is perfect to match contemporary or farmhouse decor.
Another option is using a specially designed kitchen island light. These fixtures typically use two or more lights all suspended from a single light, similar in fashion to a chandelier. These can be great for larger kitchen islands where you don't want to have a number of different pendant lights hanging, which can create visual clutter.
