I have a thing for lighting. I think every designer has their favorite element/category of design they love the most or feel the most comfortable with. For me, it's lighting. I've said it before and I'll say it again - the lighting choices you make will make a bigger impact on the room than almost anything else - especially in the kitchen. And that is why I wanted to share with you some of my favorite kitchen island light fixtures!

Most of the lighting options above would look best in a pair or in threes, so keep that in mind. There are SO many great lighting options out there it was hard to narrow it down, but I chose these lights because I feel they are unique, bring a lot of style, and are well made. I can recommend all of these fixtures with no worries. 

Each kitchen is so different and there are so many choices that it can be overwhelming. If you are trying to decide between some lighting options contact us for a consultation (if you are local) or you can do it through our E-Design or Design Dilemma program! 

Below are rooms that have these lights in them to inspire you...






Hope you enjoyed my favorite kitchen island lights! Would love to hear what your favorites are...


  1. Wow! What a generous post! I love when designers share great advice , prices & sources:))) Please don't get me wrong, I do NOT mean share what a client has paid for services rendered.

  2. Marianne, I am LOVING some of these. Wondering if you ever got my email about the e-design help with paint and fixtures? --Therese Cooper

  3. Thanks for sharing! I am wondering if you might be able to give some tips on how to tie lighting together in an open floor plan. I would like to get new unique lighting but am unsure about having it all go well together. Thanks again for your post!

    1. Stephanie, that is a great idea! I get asked quite a bit how to mix lighting in an open floor plan. I think that stresses a lot of people out. Mixing metals and styles in a way that is smart and works is an open floor plan is tricky.

      I will work on a very detailed blog post on this topic for you! Look for it this week!

    2. THANK YOU!! I'm so excited to hear your ideas! :)

  4. “The lighting choices you make will make a bigger impact on the room than almost anything else.” I agree with you on this matter. Sometimes, lighting doesn’t even have to be a statement piece; the type of light used and how it’s placed can have a drastic effect in a room.
