Kitchen pendant lighting is becoming an increasingly popular kitchen lighting fixture choice for lighting up kitchens. While traditionally kitchen lighting has been bland and uninteresting, often in the form of boring neon lights, pendant lighting can really spice up the appearance of your kitchen. You can get the lights as part of a theme that goes with the rest of your kitchen, by picking similar colors to your kitchen furniture or upholstery. Additionally, there are different types of kitchen pendant lighting based on styles of furniture - for instance, you might have elegant classical looking light fixtures if you have completely rustic or antique furniture in the kitchen, or you could have a more modern high tech look if your kitchen is of the newer ultramodern look.
Now...I'm discussing this portion last because different clients use their kitchens differently, and every person has their own taste. I'm not talking about the size (although it's related), but how many people they want in a kitchen. Some clients want everyone in the kitchen, including guests and relatives, to help in cooking or processing the meal, which means a larger kitchen to handle the people. Others don't want anyone but a few people in kitchen, so they're not tripping over people to get the meal finished, which means a smaller more efficient kitchen.
In the days before electricity changed everything in our lives, family kitchens in modestly sized homes were large but simply appointed rooms. They contained a solid fuel heat source for cooking (a fireplace or a coal or wood stove) and a built-in sink, with or without running water. Everything else was a piece of furniture. The icebox was elegantly made of wood, as were the central dining/work table, cupboards, pie safes and pantries. The family kitchen was the central work/social place of the home too where family members, sometimes in the company of friends performed most domestic chores and socialized with each other.
