Amazing green and blue themes at vintage kitchens


Kitchen lighting ideas are a key factor when designing a vintage kitchen.

A mix of wall lights that offer downward task lighting and beautiful pendants that provide wider lighting is the most effective way to achieve this.

There are plenty of different vintage lighting designs available that will imbue your home with a heritage feel, but if you’re buying an antique, make sure you do so from a reputable company that restores reclaimed lights to today’s safety standards.

This will create a stylish modern feel that builds on traditional country kitchen ideas.
