Recently while touring a few homes, I came across table lamps in the kitchen. Having a table lamp in the kitchen is something I never considered before, but it makes a lot of sense. The kitchen is a place in the home where you want to create warmth and a feeling of home. The table lamp makes the kitchen feel like an extension of the living room and adds a bit of drama.
Wait...don't go into your living room and take the living room table lamp and bring it into the kitchen just yet. Since you don't want to overwhelm the kitchen counter and/or make the lamp seem out of place in the kitchen, you will want to select a smaller lamp for the kitchen. Not every style of lamp will fit, I would personally look for lamps with fabric shades or that fit the decor of the kitchen. Good luck!
