Lighting can transform the look of your kitchen. Events of all kinds happen in the kitchen and lights are an essential mood and atmosphere control. Hosting a dinner party? Cooking a family dinner? Whatever the scenario, lighting provides the perfect setting.
Here’s a short list of fresh ideas that we have put together to help brighten up your kitchen.
Different options for stunning kitchen lighting
Under cupboard lighting is the best kind of lighting when doing tasks because it is hidden and stops your shadow from covering the worktop. It looks attractive when you turn them on and produces a lot of light.
For example if you have a granite counter the light bounces from the granite and adds beauty to the countertop. When having guests over it is nice to have as a low light so you can still see but it isn’t bright – setting the mood perfectly and giving it a sophisticated look.
If you’re going for a more modern feel to your kitchen, recent LED products are more energy efficient, saving you money while giving your kitchen that twenty-first century look.
One of the best things about track lighting is its versatility. Reposition your track lights to suit your needs. Placement is important as different positions will illuminate your kitchen in different ways.
If you place brighter lights facing a window it’s a waste of energy and money because most of the day there will be natural daylight to light it up. Entertaining friends? Angle your track lights to highlight key features – show off your fancy new kitchen!
On winter evenings, use them to create a cosy feel for you and your family. Track lights are easy to install, versatile and can take up less room than other kinds of light sources.
One of the best things about pendant lights is that the light is usually directed down, brightening a larger area – providing enough light for tasks. They look extremely exquisite, especially when there are multiple in a row, and are very aesthetic.
Dimmer switches are easy to install so you can set the mood and get the correct type of atmosphere for parties, dinner parties or everyday meals. There are many types of pendant lights available, all of which are suited to any style, making these an elegant but practical choice for your kitchen.
The kinds of lighting you choose to have in your kitchen can speak volumes about you. Dozens of various styles are available just to suit your personal taste. The range of options is impressively outstanding, meaning there are choices for even modest budgets and kitchens. Choose the right light for you, and your kitchen will benefit greatly!
