Pendant lighting in a kitchen can be very multi-functional, which is always a good thing when designing. The pendants not only provide extra light for the particular area, but also an extra visual plane that the eye is drawn to when entering the space. Kitchens are rooms made up of several different stations, and pendant lighting puts invisible walls around the particular "station" it is lighting. This could be an island, a dining table, a cook top or really anything depending on the creativity of the designer. There are so many choices as far as options go allowing the designer to tie in the rest of the room or bring in something funky into an otherwise sleek space.
