I spent some time last night scouring the web for lighting options for my kitchen, and I believe I’ve found some really viable options.
First up, for the main light in the kitchen, I found three candidates:
Option 1: VERY simple (and very inexpensive) from Home Depot. I can’t say that I just LOVE this light, but the $34.20 price tag, along with the vintage look, makes it very appealing to me. One thing’s for sure…it certainly wouldn’t compete with my glass chandelier!
Option 2: Again very simple, and I love the square shape. But is that square shape really worth an extra $89? Yep, the $123 price tag seems a bit much for something so…well…plain. But then again, simple IS what I want! *Sigh* I just don’t know.
Option 3: I absolutely love this third option. And again, if my condo were larger, or if the kitchen were more of a stand-alone room, I’d probably jump at this one. But…will this compete with my glass chandelier that will be about seven feet away? Another hesitation is that shiny chrome finish. Why can’t it be brushed nickel!!?? It’s priced at $104.99, but because of the crazy way I see things, that doesn’t seem unreasonable, since it’s more of a decorative light. The more decorative it is, the more reasonable a higher price tag seems to me.
For the other areas, I really didn’t find “options”. I pretty much found the ones that I’m certain that I’m almost 100% pretty sure that I think I want to use. (Did you follow that?) 😀
For above the sink, I really like this pendant, and the $45 price tag is reasonable. It’s simple with a classic/vintage look:
And then for the sconces above the built-in banquette seating, these matching $33 sconces are my favorites so far. Again, the simple, classic look is what I’ve been searching for.
I’d love to hear your thoughts on the three main lighting options!
