    We recently share some tricks for using lighting to create functional spaces in our post The art of kitchen lighting.

    Since we still had more to say, and to serve as inspiration, today we’re back with a collection of ceiling lamps that will look great in your kitchen. Because it’s not all recessed spotlights and lightboxes – and fluorescent lights are very, very much a thing of the past.

    Let’s get started!



    Metal cage lamp

    You’ve definitely seen them before. The fact is, these metal lamps that let you see the bulb inside hit the market a few years back and it looks like they’re here to stay.

    The most popular ones are black lacquered, which look great in white and wood kitchens; but the copper and gold finishes have been gaining ground lately.

    Important: you have to use a bulb that both provides good light and is visually attractive.



    Multi-arm ceiling lamps

    Who doesn’t remember those art deco-style lamps with a frosted glass shade? Well, they’re back with a bang, even though they’re sometimes completely reinterpreted, like in the example we’re sharing today. Before, a single sphere hung from a metal rod; today, there are designs with several bulbs mounted on different horizontal arms.

    They’re even available in floor lamps, table lamps and even wall lamps.



    Natural fibres... even on the ceiling!

    Using natural fibres is a great way to add warmth to a white kitchen, or to add a rustic or organic touch to kitchens of any colour.

    They can be incorporated through different elements, including lamps! And there are different colours for every taste: wooden, esparto, wicker, raffia, large, small, flared, round... the hardest part is figuring out which one to choose!



    Tubular lamps

    They couldn’t be more in style. Their sleek, discreet design is quickly turning into a must-have for kitchens. You can find them in black and metallic finishes as well as in different lengths.

    Because of the precise light they emit, they are usually installed above kitchen islands, always more than one and laid out in a row or a cluster.



    Industrial meets vintage

    Lamps with metal lampshades are already a tried-and-true kitchen staple. This material requires little maintenance, is extremely durable; not to mention, they look good in almost any style!

    They can add an industrial or vintage touch or, like in the example above, help to create an eclectic and avant-garde style.

    By the way, did you notice the LED strips that “frame” the ceiling? Another great way to provide light from above.




    Ceramics for the kitchen

    Have you thought about installing a lamp with a ceramic or porcelain lampshade? Of course, it’s a very popular material for table lamps, but it’s now becoming increasingly common to see them in ceiling lampshades. And no wonder: they add a super original and warm vibe.



    A floating circle

    We end our review with a suggestion that seems to come straight from the future and looks fantastic: a circular LED ring hanging from the ceiling. What do you think?
