Lighting over two islands? Pendant lighting or linear lighting?

4 years ago

We are doing a kitchen renovation with two islands (7 kids so plenty of seats to fill). Finally picked Typhoon White Granite for counters and back-splash. Last decision is lighting (pendant lights were drawn in by designer but not selected yet). Designer seems to think linear lighting is what is "in" now. I'm not sold on doing something because it is the most popular. Cabinets are going to be polar white with a gray glaze on perimeters, and loft gray with a black glaze on islands. All appliances are stainless. So cool colors. We will also have recessed lighting and under cabinet lighting. Not sure what I should be considering with island lighting, but I am thinking something to warm it up as everything else is very cool and sterile - which tends to be my style. Also what would be appropriate for two islands. Help please...
