Looking to add some new modern lighting to your kitchen? It's not as hard as you might think. While many homes come with built-in fixtures, we are major proponents of changing them up to update the aesthetic of your space. Lighting is not only one of the most important elements of a kitchen to help you cook efficiently, but it can easily take your space from adequate to stylish by just switching around a pendant or two.

If you're unsure how to pull this off, don't sweat it. We have plenty of ideas to take your kitchen lighting to the next level. But before you start shopping, we recommend that you take a good look at your kitchen and ask yourself a few questions. Where are there already lighting elements? What parts of your kitchen need the most direct illumination? Can you feasibly remove a light fixture and replace it DIY style or do you need professional help?
