Pooky lighting might not be on the tip of your tongue when it comes to finding lighting ideas for your home – but it's a real winner with us. The range might be more expensive than high street lighting favourites like BHS, but it has a gorgeous high end look that outstrips its price tags by miles.

Want to invest in just one (or two) buys to make an impact (then tighten your budget elsewhere)? Pendant lighting is the way to go in a kitchen, not only because it instantly gives the space more of a high-end feel but also because it creates distinct lighting zones that can feel more intimate. 

We thought we'd share some of our favourite Pooky lighting ideas for the kitchen here. They're pretty simple changes to make, but will seriously update the feel of your room at a fraction of the cost of other kitchen revamps.

So, browse our kitchen lighting ideas below. Then, find more inspiration with our pick of the best kitchen island lighting

Consider opting for copper toned lighting to add warmth to a space, or to complement warm toned woods. We love the pairing of the Thea Pendant Light In Copper£120, with this super stylish dark toned kitchen.

In fact, you could recreate this look with little more than a lick of paint and some new lighting. Kitchen renovation on the cheap? Totally up our street.

2. Keep it classic with an all white look

If you're looking to keep things super simple and stripped back, you really can't go wrong with the Dexter Pendant Light in White, £110. Set against an on-trend white and navy colour scheme – as seen here – it creates a subtle, industrial feel that won't date as interiors trends come and go.

3. Channel the industrial look

Add an industrial feel to your space with the Timothy Pendant Light, £135. Available in Deep Maroon – our favourite – as well as Military Green and Ash Black, this super stylish lighting hints vintage, industrial interiors, but in a way that would complement any contemporary space.

4. Create an intimate dining space

As we've mentioned, pendant lighting can be used to create intimate lighting zones. Here, the Thea Pendant Light In Copper, £120, is positioned above a dining table, which forms part of an open plan space. 

This not only makes the dining space feel distinct from the rest of the room, but will create a similar kind of intimacy that might be achieved with candlelight, without taking up valuable surface space.
