Lighting Ideas for Small Kitchen

Posted by katiemc02 (My Page) on

We are finally done with the demo and installation phase of our DIY kitchen (minus the backsplash) and on to the finishing touches like lighting and hardware. I'm having a really hard time with the lighting. We have a small 9 x 10 kitchen and two lighting fixtures. I don't know if I should do two similar lights with different sizes. Or one pendant light in the middle of the room and a multi-pendant light over the sink. I would love any suggestions and/or pictures of what others have done. In terms of style I really the Harmon and Benson style pendants from Restoration Hardware. I just don't know how to use it in the kitchen with another light. Any suggestions would be so appreciated!

Don't forget the under-cabinet lighting. Ceiling fixtures alone are not enough light, even in a small kitchen.
