My Pendant Picks for the Kitchen!

As promised, here are a few pendant fixtures I’m considering to hang over our corner kitchen table.  I love modern fixtures as well as industrial style and glass.  I also love a good shade.  Decisions, Decisions.  Below the pictures, I share my considerations and criteria.

 Some things to consider in the space when choosing our fixture:

  • The window-pane mirror on the wall.  I’m not sure yet if this will be white or stained to match the door beside it.  Either way, a light will reflect in it and might be better if it’s on the simple side.
  • Hardware is dark bronze, trim is white, and door is stained – could coordinate with any of these.
  • If a color, I’m avoiding green, grey, and yellow.
  • Wood door is stained – so we could choose a wood globe.
  • Hanging height; we have bench seating around the table so it can’t be too low.
  • Scale: is it substantial enough?  I’m thinking 12-16″ diameter is appropriate for our space.
  • I don’t know if I want to see the light bulb (like some of the options below), so a shade might be nice.
  • Amount of light? Is there enough? Is it warm? We know it will be on a dimmer, but at it’s brightest, we should see well!
