Kitchens with Pendant Lighting
Here, a trio of lights hang above the center island and provide ample lighting for a casual mealtime or dinner preparation. The style fits perfectly with the space's cottage-meets-contemporary feel, and the stainless-steel accents blend beautifully with the appliances and hardware.

Glowing Pendant Lighting
These pendant lights hang above the island to give an extra glow. The lights, wrapped with shiny gold shades, are sleek and stylish without becoming too dramatic against the colorful backdrop of cabinetry. The added light beckons visitors to gather in the kitchen's cozy atmosphere.
Pendant Lighting for a Traditional Kitchen
Pendant Lights for High Ceilings
One Unit, Three Pendants
Here, disc-shape pendant lights hang low from the ceiling to illuminate the countertop and sink area. The fluted white shades blend well with the kitchen's delicate, refined look.
Sparkling Pendant Lights
This small kitchen boasts a variety of textures and finishes, right down to the lighting above the island. A pair of sparkly pendant lights suspended above the island prep space provides needed task lighting and gives the kitchen another layer of texture and style. The suspension wires were wrapped with rope to conceal the unattractive hardware.
These shimmering, chandelier-style pendant lights hang a short distance from the kitchen's ceiling, which helps to visually heighten the room. Although they're closer to the ceiling than some pendants in other kitchens, these are hung low enough to provide adequate lighting to the island prep zone and dining space.

Pendant Lighting Combo
Use two types of pendants for a custom lighting look. In this kitchen, a pendant light with a large patterned drum shade hangs above the small island, while a series of smaller frosted-glass pendants are suspended above the nearby countertop. Both lighting options blend well with the kitchen's relaxed, traditional look.
Pendants Emphasize the Ceiling
Coffered ceilings are a beautiful architectural detail of many homes. If your kitchen boasts a stylish ceiling like this one, draw the eye upward with an array of pendant lights. The dark brushed-metal finish of these lights lend contrast to the weathered-wood ceiling, but their shape blends well with the room's cozy farmhouse vibe.
Lighting Above the Island
Two oversize pendant lights hang above this island and enhance the ambience of the room. The woven wicker shades contrast with the kitchen's sleek-lined aesthetic, and they also blend well with the stone flooring and the rustic wood grain on the cabinetry.
Glass Pendant Lights
A trio of clear glass pendant lights suspended from a weathered wooden ceiling beam look airy and light in this kitchen. The lights are hung low above the island, offering plenty of task lighting for food prep and mealtime. When they're not lit, the glass pendants become practically invisible.
Dainty Pendants, Big Style
Three tiny pendant lights add oodles of style to this traditional kitchen. The pendants' shades provide an intricate quilted pattern and give the kitchen's classic decor a splash of sparkly bling. The metal shades also blend well with the room's modern stainless-steel appliances.
