It’s a sure way to give your kitchen a family-friendly, stylish make-over: creating an industrial kitchen island. There’s plenty of space to cook, eat, play and chat; everything in one and the same place. But how should it look? If you’re searching for some kitchen island ideas, then look no further. We’ve collected a few fine examples of industrial kitchen islands for you – with pendant lighting, of course! Have a nose and see what you think:
A place to relax
This one’s a classic: a kitchen island with an incorporated bench. This bench is for reading rather than eating, as the books and magazines on the side suggest. Homely and inviting, it makes sure the kitchen is a place to relax. The industrial pendant lighting matches with the chrome appliances and gives it just that extra touch of modern shine.
Large kitchen islands
Then there are also the more elaborate kitchen islands. This robust wood-and-metal island is a breakfast bar, work spot and storage unit at the same time. Islands like these really fill up the space, acting as a focal point for the kitchen area. The four black pendant lights helps define the long island as one zone – making the design clear but open.
This kitchen island is full of clever design tricks. The warm wooden top is a continuation of the surrounding floor, although the kitchen floor itself is made out of smoother polished concrete. This contrast comes back in the shiny chrome cupboards and the old-school metal legs of the bar stools. All these details make this kitchen island slightly edgy – it’s both modern and vintage. Nicely topped off with high bay industrial pendant lighting.
Less is more
Sometimes, less is still more. This simple kitchen island/breakfast bar shows that all you need is a robust table and some basic chairs to make room for conversation. The baskets underneath are an easy storage solution, leaving just enough space for a bin on the other side. A glass pendant light adds vintage charm to the whole arrangement.
These are just a few kitchen island ideas with pendant lighting to tickle your fancy, but there’s a whole lot more to explore! Feel free to have a browse through our section of vintage industrial pendant lighting and who knows, you might come across the perfect one.
