Lighting can be tricky in any kitchen. Not only do you have to make sure that the right areas are well lit, but also keep the balance between fluorescent and LED, while keeping the lights in line with your kitchen theme. Here are 4 kitchen lighting solutions for your kitchen, no matter what your style.
- Recessed Lighting
Recessed lights, or down lights, are great for general lighting and are extremely versatile. Recessed lights can be installed almost anywhere because you don’t need to worry about clearances with doors or fixtures.
- Under Cabinet Lights
Under cabinet lighting is good for areas assigned to a certain task. For example, the cleaning/sink area, food prep area or pantry. The most common lights used are an LED light strip installed underneath the top cabinets to shine light on a cooking area or bench space. These lights are great because they can’t be seen, so they don’t distract from other features in your kitchen, but they provide you with enough light to get everything done. You can also get these light strips installed in your pantry so that they turn on when the pantry door is opened.
- Accent Lighting
Having accent lights in your kitchen creates ambience and adds style. These could be lights that highlight attractive detailing such as an ornate range hood or splashback. Unique pendants are also a great choice for accent lighting in your kitchen.
- Dimming Systems
Dimmers are great because they allow flexibility with the lighting in your kitchen. You can instantly change the mood for prep, dining and clean up.
There are many options to consider when deciding on lighting for your kitchen. Just remember to really think about how you and your family use the kitchen when coming up with a lighting plan.
