On the fifth day of Christmas…

On the fifth day of Christmas, my darling gave to me…a five light kitchen island fixture, four stunning table lamps, three perfectly mismatched side tables, two party drink tables, and a floor lamp next to the tree!

Our fifth stop during the 12 Days of Christmas brings us to the kitchen. Kitchen lighting, to be exact. As a space of entertaining, gathering family, and using sharp utensils, function in the kitchen is more important than other rooms in the house. Poor lighting is not only bad for conversation and style, but safety as well. The perfect kitchen has recessed lighting, under (and over) cabinet lighting, as well as stylish lighting above the island. Depending on the layout of your kitchen, it may also be appropriate to add sconces, small lamps, or other lighting features.


To light your island, you can use multiple pendants, chandeliers, or a long fixture made just for kitchen islands or pool tables. Each option has different advantages and looks, so it all depends on what works well for you, your style, and your home.
