Make A Statement In Your Kitchen

Is your kitchen lacking a little luster? Spice it up with a statement light fixture. You’ll just have to think about the size you want and how to properly support it and you can transform your kitchen today!

A new pendant light fixture is the way to go if you want to make a bold statement in your kitchen. Not only will it provide added task lighting, it can create drama and style at the same time. Centerpiece light fixtures come in all shapes and sizes to so its important to keep that in mind while shopping.

Size
According to This Old House, it should be “no wider than the surface its illuminating, but large enough to make an impact. If it’s too small, it can look “dinky” but you definitely don’t want to over-do it.

Support
It’s a good idea to take a look at the fixture in person if possible. You’ll want to find out how much it weighs so you can make sure it is supported properly. For example, if the fixture weighs 50 pounds, a regular electrical box won’t do the trick – you’ll need to have a fan brace installed.

Hanging light fixtures can really brighten up a dull room, but it’s a project you should always leave to the pros. Call on the experts at Lon Lockwood Electric – we’ll be glad to install any and all fixtures for you!
