If you have a small kitchen and you are struggling to make everything fit without it looking cramped then you have come to the right place. The aim of this article is to show you how to use the space that you have and to give your kitchen illusion of looking bigger, by using pendant lights.
Storage will be your main issue if you have a small kitchen. If you install regular cupboards, the room will start to look smaller and smaller. This is because standard kitchen cupboards can be very deep.
Therefore, the trick is to build upwards instead of outwards. You should have your cupboards designed to be tall, and not deep. With a tall design, you will be able to store the same amount of items, but the shelves will be a lot smaller in width. Having this style of cupboards means that your kitchen will look a lot bigger.
Many people with small kitchens will think that it will save space if they install spotlights in the ceiling to make the room look bigger. Whilst this is not necessarily a false assumption, pendant lighting will give you the same effect and they are a lot more fashionable.
You can also install this style of light close to the ceiling so that the light cover does not take up a lot of space. You could look into having this style of light with a thin neck and a small shade, to keep everything within the design element of long and thin.
One of the benefits of these lights is that they will fit into a retro styled kitchen, as well as a more contemporary kitchen. This is because there are different choices when it comes to the style of light shade. Furthermore, if you change the design of the kitchen at a later date, all you have to do is change the light fixture; you don't have to change the light. This means that your pendant lighting can last a long time and it will save you money in the long run.
If you have decided to have a dining table in your kitchen, then you should look into collapsible tables so that you can save room when you are not using it. Some tables will be extendable so that you can make the table bigger when you have guests.
Another benefit of this style of light is that they can be used as a feature piece to highlight one element of the kitchen, conjunction with other styles of light. Therefore, it is a good idea to use the light to highlight the kitchen table. This means that there will be a romantic element to the design of the kitchen because you don't have to put all the lights on when you are eating at the table.
If you are not sure which style of light will complete your kitchen, you can look on social media,where there will be images of different kitchen designs. They will illustrate different lights and this will help you to choose the one for you.
If you don't have access to social media, you can contact a specialist light store and they will be able to give you advice. Any good light store will be able to recommend you on your lighting choice.
