If you've ever been inside an old house that was never renovated you'll notice that kitchen design has changed drastically since the 1920's. Kitchens back then were cramped, utilitarian and small compared to the wide flowing spaces we see in modern home design. They were also dark, utilizing only one ceiling light to illuminate the entire room. This one light often proved inadequate to the task as your shadow would cast over the work area making it hard to see what you were doing.
Times have changed though with the advent of mini pendant lights. These lights are small and hang over the work area, be it a counter top, sink or stove, and provide ample light just where it's needed. These lights have gained popularity in recent years and are often hung in groups of 3 or 4 lights over breakfast bars and nooks within the kitchen. They are available in a wide variety of styles to fit the needs of any decor and their cost is affordable for tight design budgets. Mini pendant lights give you the flexibility of providing light where you need it most utilizing an attractive design that will have your neighbors asking where you got such wonderful lamps.
