Ideas for Illuminating your Kitchen
Well-executed kitchen lighting is a combination of things the average person won’t even notice, yet if you neglected to follow certain rules in kitchen lighting, the difference can be glaringly obvious. The thing about kitchen lighting is that it entails using fixtures that not only perform a single function, but multiple functions at the same time.
A desk lamp, for instance, is used for lighting the desk for tasks like reading, writing etc. You can’t exactly take that same lamp into the kitchen.
Here are some ideas to get you started.
Don’t Forget Recessed Lighting Recessed lights are the most basic, yet most flexible solution for kitchen lighting. For one, they can be used practically anywhere, the countertop, under the cupboards, inside cabinets, over the kitchen island—your imagination is the limit.
And when used in conjunction with several other recessed lights, you get to enjoy a well-lit kitchen. If you plan to have several recessed lights, be sure to stick with LEDs, which use very little energy—you want to keep your utility bill down.
Go for Track Lights Track lighting can be as good as, if not better than recessed lighting depending on how they’re used. With the right numbers, they can be great for general lighting, but when angled the right way, they can also be ideal for task lighting.
Pendant Lights Pendant fixtures serve the dual purpose of looking good while also serving a useful purpose. These fixtures excel at bringing down the level of lighting at about the same height as your head. Of course, don’t take this ‘standard’ as gospel; you have free reign over the height of your pendants, depending on your taste and desired theme.
