Kitchen Pendant Lighting Revealed!

Back in June, I requested your feedback on pendant lights that Joey and I were picking out as part of our kitchen renovation. In that post, I showed you 4 different options that we were considering purchasing to hang above the countertops and sink. If you'd like to refresh your memory on the original options, click here.

Well, after much consideration (and taking your comments into account), we finally decided to go with Pendant #2! We liked the traditional look of the pendant and felt it still complimented the light fixture in the center of the ceiling without being too matchy-matchy.

So, we purchased the pendants online back in June, and Joey hung the lights this weekend. And I must admit that I like them very much! Here is a picture of the pendant from the website...


And here are some pictures of the pendants hanging in our kitchen!

As you can see above, we hung 1 pendant above the sink and 2 in front of the windows for task lighting on the countertops. They do a great job of lighting up the space! Nothing like a bright kitchen for cooking and baking! The pendants came with several hanging rods giving us the ability to customize their height to our liking. In the end, we went with just 1 of the 3 rods to keep the pendants hung fairly high as to not block our view out the windows. And even at that height, they provide a lot of down-light on the counters.

Here is a close-up shot of the pendant above the sink.

I can't wait until the other pieces of the kitchen come together - paint, quartz countertops, the rest of the cabinets, and trim will make these little lights look even brighter!

So, what do you think? Don't the pendants add a nice "finish" to the space (even though the kitchen is clearly very un-finished at this point)? We want your opinions - so, don't be shy!
