Whether you’re doing a full kitchen re-fit or looking for simple ways to spruce up your space, a change in your kitchen lighting can transform the whole room.

Get inspired by our top 10 ways to set your kitchen apart or find info on what you need to consider when planning your kitchen lighting.

01/ SPIDER CHANDELIERS

Pendants don’t have to hang straight down from the ceiling. Make a feature of your cables using a multi-way ceiling rose and ceiling hooks.

02/ 3D PRINTED KITCHEN

For seriously modern and unique kitchen lighting, have some 3D printed Kayan shades made to order. They come in a choice of colours and are designed to fit round Plumen bulbs. Made with recyclable PLA, they’re the perfect choice for a sustainable lighting masterpiece.

03/ LOVE ISLAND LIGHTING

Often the hub of a home, a kitchen island requires top notch task lighting as well as beautiful feature lighting. Encasing the Plumen 001 in a Decode shade helps direct light onto the island while softening the direct glare of a bulb.

04/ COLOURFUL PENDANTS

Add colour to a muted kitchen by mixing and matching brightly coloured cords. Get creative with the way they’re hung by intertwining them into playful knots and loops.

05/ EXPOSED FILAMENT BULBS

If you’re a fan of exposed filament bulbs but bored of seeing them everywhere, opt for ones with a contemporary silhouette – adding a modern twist to a vintage light. This row of Wilmas in copper pendants stand out in a monochrome kitchen.

6/ ECO KITCHEN STYLE

Follow in the footsteps of eco design team, Life Edited, who hung the Plumen 003 over their island. Its dual light source works by directing a spotlight downwards to illuminate surfaces while its super warm ambient side-light casts a gentle glow on surroundings.

7/ CREATIVE CLUSTERS

You don’t have to hang pendants in a line.  Creating clusters can add real character to a space and means you can change your look as often as you fancy by grouping your lights in different ways.

8/ MILKY MAGIC

Create a piece of art from your kitchen lighting with Milky WattNott bulbs. Switched off, they look like elegant sculptures but switched on, a delicate floating filament magically appears, casting a soft glow on surroundings.  Perfect decorative accompaniment to kitchen task lighting.

 

9/ METAL REFLECTIONS

Create stunning reflections and coloured glows with these sleek metal shades. Our collection of Drop Hat Shades are ideal for those who want to enjoy the beauty of a bare Plumen bulb within a refined and effortless lighting piece.

10/ GLASS HOUSES

Tinted glass shades not only help bring your lighting in-line with your colour scheme, but also help to direct light onto surfaces below. Try the Plumen 002 with drop top shade.
