We have always maintained that lighting is pretty much what makes or breaks the look of any interior space. With most home owners opting to place the corner sink by the kitchen window, there generally is ample natural ventilation. This is both a smart and practical choice as you not only have a lovely view to enjoy and abundant fresh air to take in, but natural light is still the best source to get work done under. But a pendant light installation above the corner sink more or less becomes a must as you still need focused light in the area after sunset.
It is best to take into account the size of the kitchen island, the amount of illumination each pendant light offers and the size of the lighting units themselves. For a small kitchen island, two large pendant lights might be pretty sufficient. Sometimes, a large chandelier-styled design works. Yet, it is undeniable that a repetition in odd numbers works best.
Lastly, when decorating your breakfast nook, remember that it does not necessarily need to look like an extension of your existing kitchen décor. As long as it complements the rest of the space, it’s okay to add different colors, patterns and textures to give the space its own identity. In the end, your breakfast nook should be the perfect place to enjoy a hot cup of coffee and a good book.
