Library Lights In The Kitchen

Open shelving is the latest kitchen trend and this year we are seeing a lot of library lighting used in those spaces with no upper cabinets. This is a trend that can create a much more open feeling in your kitchen. Since the upper half of your kitchen space will be more visually open without upper cabinets, library lights on the walls are a great lighting option. This unexpected type of lighting will beautifully accent your kitchen activities and any objects that are important to you in the space.  Here are some spaces we love with great examples of this new style of kitchen lighting:

Even with upper cabinets in your kitchen, metal library lights above the kitchen sink, as seen here, are a stylish complement to the windows.
