Rustic Farmhouse Lighting in the Kitchen

I don’t know about you, but for me, the kitchen is the heart of my home. It is the main gathering spot for friends and family, whether it be a nice family dinner, a birthday celebration, or game night with the neighbors. Notice, in just those few examples I named, much of my time spent in the kitchen comes in the evening hours.  This is where finding the perfect rustic farmhouse lighting comes in to play!  During those late hours, when little to no natural light is filling my kitchen, I want beautiful lighting to welcome my family and friends.

It can be finding the right chandelier over a dining table or the perfect pendants hanging above the kitchen island.  But when I think rustic, I immediately think of the Edison bulbs. I love them!  For those of you that may not know what the Edison bulb looks like – here is an example I found on Amazon.  Not a bad price for a set of six either!  These bulbs will cost more than your average lightbulb, but if you are interested in great rustic farmhouse lighting design, these have HUGE impact!

I have used these bulbs throughout my homes over the past few years, and I love the design appeal.  They do not, however, produce a lot of light. Therefore, I like to make them a focal point for design rather than from a practical need.  You can never have too many alternative forms of lighting in a room.

Besides, what is the point of having these beautiful bulbs, if you can’t display them?!?!  I found this gorgeous pendant lighting fixture on Amazon also.  I have seen this pendant structure in countless rustic farmhouse designs, but it is almost always a copper pendant. I love the idea of that same beautiful rustic farmhouse lighting shape in GLASS!  It is exquisite, and it allows the simplistic beauty of the bulb and shape of the pendant to really be showcased.  I love the copper pendants, don’t get me wrong.  But, I also love finding different items.  To me, the elegant shape and the Edison bulb combine to give your kitchen a chic take on rustic farmhouse lighting.  It is also half the price of most copper pendants if you are designing on a budget.

If your heart was stolen long ago by the copper pendants and the idea of glass pendants are too modern for your taste, I did find one that is picture perfect rustic farmhouse lighting.

    The kitchen is also my favorite place at home, but the interior design is really old. I hope to give it a make over with some of these rustic tips. Copper is one of my favorite element too and would love to have a sink and a pendant lighting for the island.
