Bored of your traditional kitchen? Geometric pendants to the rescue.
Lighting in the kitchen has become more important in UK homes because the use of the space has changed so dramatically within a couple of generations. The kitchen is no longer a place where the wife prepares the meal and brings it through to the dining room. In modern day the space is often much larger, incorporating casual dining areas and maybe a few easy chairs and a television. Kitchen counters are deeper forming breakfast bars, workstations or islands are built into the centre of room and a smart shiny appliance sits on the counter ready to serve espresso coffee to the family and friends. Does this multifunctional space need more than a ceiling light in the middle of the room? Well of course it does!
And there you have it, follow these 3 steps and your kitchen will be bright, beautiful and look straight out of an interior designers’ dream. Need more advice or looking for some lighting ideas? The Lighting Styles Design Team are always available to offer professional advice to help create your perfect kitchen.

A transformer like all electronic products, can occasionally fail, our transformers are sold with a guarantee for peace of mind. Mains lamps do not require a transformer which reduces the initial purchase price.
Both LV and mains downlights are dimmable however with the mains option you need to allow an extra 25% capacity in your dimmer unit. A 400w dimmer can run only 6 x 50w Mains lamps. Although you also need to leave some extra capacity in your dimmer with LV say 10%. Please note you must check your dimmer unit is capable of running low voltage transformers.
Task lighting is the more focused lighting. You will want to install task lighting over your sink, cooker or other food preparation areas so that you can see what you are doing. You may want to consider downlights, track lighting, under cabinet lighting.
Accent lighting is used to highlight features of your kitchen – cabinets, cooker alcoves, or art work for example. Down lights or wall lights can be used plus there are many different shelf lights which can add a real wow factor to your kitchen. Use under cabinet lighting, kitchen island lighting, pendant lighting, side by side other types of contemporary kitchen lighting. You may be surprised at how much you can change the look and feel of your kitchen by simply changing the type of kitchen lighting that you use! Whether you have spent the money on a brand new kitchen with new units and appliances or simply updated an existing kitchen we believe it is worth investing in new lighting to show it off.

Mains lamps are available in 25 and 36 degree beam angles, LV beam angles are 12, 24, 38 and 60 degree – depending on availability and the manufacturer.
Balance rustic and modern with industrial hanging pendants. They can also help ground an all-white kitchen.
You will also find with LV lamps that there is less heat, this is because the heat is directed backwards whilst GU10 (mains) lamps give out heat forwards. Low voltage is great for commercial environments when the lights will be on for long periods of time.
People will think you bought them at a Moroccan bazaar. (But no one has to know that you actually didn’t.)
If you want an eye-catching piece in your kitchen, you need a statement chandelier. Even though this one is massive, it doesn’t feel obtrusive, due to the minimal design and clean, open framework.

A trio of pendants look clean over an island. Farmhouse decor goals.
Major Differences Apart from the voltage, there are some important differences between the two types of light which may help you decide on which is the best for you. You may have noticed from our website we offer our downlights in both mains and LV versions. The fittings look identical as the same castings are used for both. It is the type and quality of light they give which is the most noticeable difference. Low voltage dichroic halogen lamps will make the colours in decoration more prominent and give a better definition to paintings, pictures and objects. Mains voltage halogen provides a good overall spread of quality functional light for general purpose lighting.
Use a pendant to add a subtle vintage feel. Though longer ones work over kitchen islands, this short hanging pendant is perfect over a kitchen sink.
If you want to add some color but are afraid to go too bold, try a mobile. It will liven up a neutral kitchen without overpowering it.

So many people overlook one of the most important parts of a kitchen design – the KITCHEN LIGHTING!
Our Advice Ultimately the decision is yours but hopefully this information has been helpful. If pushed we would always, if possible, suggest using mains voltage downlights only when it is not possible to use low voltage. Either way, please always employ a qualified electrician to do the work.

These fixtures will make a statement, enhance your existing design, and brighten up your kitchen without costing you a fortune.

Mains lamps last on average 2,000 to 2,500 hours whilst low voltage last on average 3,000 to 5,000 hours. Both consume approximately the same amount of electricity however the 50w LV halogen lamp gives out approximately 20% more light than the 50w Mains lamp.
Remember low voltage does not mean low energy – it is simply converting mains voltage down to a lower volt. If you require low energy then you could choose a mains LED or CFL.
