As my kitchen makeover continues my mind is now on lighting. It's truly amazing how much lighting can add to a space. It's like a piece of jewellery that can add the perfect finishing touch to a look. There's the practical kitchen lights that are often tucked away in the ceiling, under the cupboards or behind a valence and then there's the feature light. That's your stylish necklace hanging there for everyone to see. Here's a round up of 4 different styles of kitchen/dining hanging lights to consider for your space. What look would you go for?

Like fashion accessories, whatever your style, there's a light fixture to match. Here I've pulled four popular styles to help you pull together the look you're going for in your kitchen/dining area.
