Unique lighting choices will give your kitchen a bold original new look!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA These beautiful  retro pendant lights found at HudsonGoods.com can really make your kitchen unique. Whether remodeling from scratch (demo-ing the whole space) or just wanting to change things up a bit, try to find lighting that speaks to you and not just the same old stuff from the big box stores! A row of these beauties or even just one in a key location will set your kitchen apart from the rest. While they are a bit more expensive than the big box stores, they will not set you back that much and will be a great….conversation piece for your parties to come. You can even make your own lighting, fashioned after really expensive brands… but for pennies on the dollar! DIY lightingThis chandelier is made from light bulbs,  a bicycle wheel and some chain. There is only one working bulb in the center, hanging from a store bought  single socket on a wire fixture. The center bulb (the real one) illuminates all the others in this cascading effect fixture. How creative!   Or this one made from corrugated steel (or aluminum) bent into a square, rectangle or even circle with a frame. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA   The point is…. get creative with your lighting.  It will definitely make your kitchen unique. Have fun, show your personality… don’t be afraid to be different! Being different is to be cutting edge! You never know, you may just start a trend.

These retro, lamps hung in a cluster are a blast from the past. What is old is new again in today’s retro modern world. I purchased a single wire fixture in an antique store in old town Folsom a while back and I just love it! Here they have taken a few of the old retro styles and hung them together as a chandelier. Wow! I love it.

Cheers!
