One thing I learned doing showhomes is that the easiest way to update your kitchen is the lighting. I like pendants over the island to be beefy. The bigger, the better. Also, the more unique or interesting, the more I love it (and easier to distract from your not so favorite parts of the kitchen). Here are some of my favorite pendants.
