What's Hanging in your Kitchen?

We all hang out in the kitchen. It's become more than just a utilitarian's where we do, well, everything! Gather, cook, bake, work, socialize and more. So it's not surprise we've spent so much time and money on planning, organizing, updating and rearranging the space.

Our question to you is: What is 'hangin' in the kitchen? What Lighting are you using and is it working for you today? Your options are endless and we will make a few suggestions for you to consider in this newsletter.

Stay healthy and well,



"As a general rule, the kitchen is designed with a utilitarian mindset. Every element in the room has a distinct purpose: the countertops need to be durable and easy to clean, the appliances need to be reliable, and the cabinetry has to provide ample storage and be durable as well. Lighting your kitchen is one of the few components you can have fun and creativity with…so why not take advantage of that? As designers, it’s the unexpected choice we just can’t resist."
Adele Chandelier by Suzanne Kasler for Visual Comfort
"Chandeliers like to be the center of attention. And can you blame them? Who doesn’t like a little glitter and sparkle from time to time? Placing a chandelier in your kitchen is a great way to create a strong visual focal point and provide balance and symmetry to the kitchen. Don’t be afraid to choose a chandelier with a wow factor.You can also play with metal finishes, like antique brass and polished nickel. "
