The right kitchen lighting can change the entire look and feel of your cooking space and can be your kitchen’s best asset. It is not only functional but can also create the perfect ambiance in your kitchen. Take a look at these different types of lighting options to ensure your kitchen lighting is practical yet impressive.

Practical Lighting
Under cabinet lighting and down lights are great for illuminating an overall area such as a bench top or cooking zone for certain tasks. A popular choice for these undetectable lights is LED lighting as they are available in strip lighting and won’t overheat your cabinets above. If your kitchen includes entertaining and dining areas, include dimming options in the style of lighting you choose as this is essential in setting the right mood in your kitchen. Dimmers and switches allow flexibility as you can adjust the level and amount of lighting to suit your task or mood.

Decorative and Statement Lighting
Embellish your kitchen and give your space a stylish touch with some decorative lighting. Pendant lighting can be both practical and stylish as it can highlight a specific area such as a kitchen island, sink or table and at the same time, adds a focal point to your kitchen. Consider your kitchen scale as the size and layout of your kitchen will determine the size and shape of your pendant light. Chandeliers are a bold statement in the kitchen and may not suit everyone’s taste, but they can add a touch of elegance and glamour above a kitchen island or kitchen table.

Natural Lighting
If your kitchen space allows, incorporating natural light into your design will make your kitchen feel open and airy. An open and larger looking kitchen may help to increase your property value as buyers will be drawn to its natural daylight. Natural lighting will not only save electricity and reduce your energy bills but it keeps your kitchen space fresh and clean.
