I love my new kitchen. Yes, it’s still small, but for the first time ever it’s perfectly functional and has tons of storage space. There’s pretty much nothing wrong with it…EXCEPT the lack of lighting. SO, when National Builder Supply contacted me about reviewing one of their products, I absolutely jumped at the chance. I knew that installing some pendant lights over the breakfast bar would be both functional and make the space look even better than before.
If you’ve never been to the National Builder Supply website before, you’re in for a treat and you may spend hours browsing their fixtures just like I did. After several hours I initially narrowed my search down to three lights that I liked the best:
They all had a cool industrial vibe about them that I thought would be a nice contrast to the bead-board cabinets in the kitchen. It was a tough decision, but I eventually decided to go with the second option, the Kichler 2664pn Mini Pendant.
I thought this would be a quick and easy addition to the kitchen. Well…it took the electrician 3.5 hours and countless holes in my walls to get them installed. Luckily for him, I’m head over heels for them.
Here’s a quick before shot:
My little corner of heaven! I’ve even relocated my desk to the breakfast bar for now so that I have another excuse to sit and admire my new lights! They look kind of retro diner-esque and really provide great light on the work space beneath.
The industrial vibe that I was looking for is provided by the both the polished nickel finish and the hardware on the pendants themselves:
Here’s another angle. I’m still swooning over them…can you tell?!
