Pendant lights add a great finishing touch to kitchens islands, peninsulas, dining areas, bar areas, reception areas and retail counters or displays. They take a lighting plan to the next level by adding lots of interest and pop, and they add a little whimsy or sophistication depending on the design. They also add valuable additional light to the areas mentioned above, and often complement recessed lighting or ceiling mounted fixtures. Many kitchen projects that I’ve worked on have been made complete and personalized for clients by the type of pendant lighting, cabinet hardware, and backsplash tile that’s selected. Pendant lights are a fun and functional way to add personality to a new construction or remodeling project.
