Island Lights

Posted on May 11, 2014 by Daniel Brielmaier | 0 comments

So you’re really excited about the new island you had installed in your kitchen. This is a pretty practical move, as islands usually facilitate an easier and more efficient workspace. Islands are also commonplace in bars and game rooms, where drinks or food are served.

Still, what’s the use of a good home island without the right kind of lighting to help complement your space? Invest in a couple of quality lighting fixtures that can make the ultimate difference between boring and extraordinary.

Island lights are lighting fixtures made specifically to highlight an island, which is essentially the working area of the room you place it in. They provide direct sources of lighting that better illuminate any activity going on, as well as provide aesthetic appeal to the room. A couple of island lights can transform your kitchen or home bar into the trendiest place to be in the house. If you want both great design and durable functionality, go for lighting fixtures designed specifically for your island. Impress your guests with stylishly designed lighting fixtures for your perfect island from LampsUSA.

Pendant lights are the most common kinds of island lighting fixtures, and for good reason. Pendant lighting or lights are supported by downward metal rods that focus light directly onto the island—that’s great lighting for you minus the glare. LampsUSA offers a wide selection of both beautiful and sturdy pendant lights that you’re going to love hanging over your island.

Consider the Use

Reading lamps need a wider shade to provide plenty of light. 

Consider the Room - What is the color and style of your room? Will the lamp have a starring role or compliment its surroundings?

Consider the Bulb
Be sure you have 2-3 inch separation from bulb to shade, especially for higher wattage bulbs. Be sure the top opening is wide enough to vent the heat. Compact Fluorescent bulbs are great for most lamps because they burn cooler, but you may need larger harp since CFL's are taller than standard light bulbs.
