Light it upThere’s no doubt where the centre of this room is. The simple globe lights, grouped to create a fabulous cluster, highlight an impeccably tailored island unit, the sharp lines emphasised by the contrasting colours. Comfy seats enhance the glamorous bar vibe and encourage friends to linger.See more cluster lights

Jo Simmons added this to Illuminating Ideas for Planning Perfect Lighting
Mug up on lighting fixturesThere is a huge range of different fixtures available, so familiarity with their function and benefits is helpful. Downlighters cast direct pools of light onto the surface below and are usually recessed into the ceiling. Uplighters, on the other hand, throw light up onto the ceiling, which then bounces off, creating a soft look. They work best in pairs, at eye level or higher. Wall lights are just any light fitted to the wall, and they diffuse light gently into the room. Perfect for adding background light, they work well in hallways and living rooms. Pendant lights, from chandeliers to single bulbs, typically hang in the centre of the room and are a good starter for general lighting. A single pendant tends to flatten shadows and cast a dim light, though, so consider choosing one on an adjustable flex, hanging a row of pendants or buying a cluster-style design to create a richer light and more flexibility.See more dazzling cluster lightsHow have you illuminated your home?

Install lights en masseThe star of this kitchen is undoubtedly the modern lighting masterpiece. The chaotic cluster of chromed glass orbs is a visual feast for the eyes – and casts a pleasing glow over the island at the same time.

Use lighting to zone your space One of the great things about venturing out of the conventional with your lighting design is that you can use it to zone your areas, and create different ambiences in each. Here, the playful and glamorous dining area feels quite separate from the functional working zone thanks to the statement pendant lighting. Downlighting in the kitchen area is perfect for prep, and the combination of the two enables the mood to be changed at the flick of a switch – a lighting control system can throw the dining area into entertaining mode, with the functional lighting in the cooking area dimmed right down.If you don’t want to go quite as flamboyant as this kitchen, you can pinch some of the same zoning ideas and apply them with a little more moderation.Check out 10 ways to dazzle with cluster lights
Carolyn Parker Interior Design Ltd. added this to 9 Ideas for Illuminating Your Kitchen Island
Go for a glow, not a beamCluster lights above the island create depth in this space. This design works well with this low-ish ceiling, since the lighting doesn’t need to drop too far down, meaning mostly all you see are those beautiful globes rather than the spaghetti of visible cables you’d have if you hung lights like this from higher up (obviously they need to be low enough to provide sufficient light). It’s a much softer way of casting a glow onto an island than choosing single pendants, which give you a direct light. It just depends which look you prefer and what sort of lighting suits your needs.
