DESIGN IDEA: A BRIGHT IDEA IN KITCHEN LIGHTING!

modern kitchen with dark wood cabinets and counter

I like this lighting look in this modern kitchen. Dark wood cabinets and counters, counter to ceiling white subway tile backsplash, and simple bulb suspension pendant lights dangling from a metal bar that is mounted onto the ceiling.

To me, these simple Edison like bulbs in different shapes and sizes work both in form and function. They look good and they provide sufficient lighting over the kitchen sink work space...makes cooking and cleaning up a little more stylish I think.

A do it yourself (DIY) horizontal bulb light fixture of sorts.

Good idea...and good looking. Simple, clean, modern and a bit of a design surprise.

  3. I love the look and would definitely be willing to incorporate this idea in my designs. This is actually a popular lighting trend here in the Seattle area! However, I have always questioned how is the illumination on a daily basis. Is it too bright?
    Anyone has an opinion on this?
