Kitchen Lighting for Your Space

Are you deciding on lighting fixtures’ for your kitchen? Lighting your kitchen doesn’t need to be a complex matter, keep it simple. Don’t underestimate the power of lighting; having an effective lighting system in your kitchen is important and beneficial. The most common mistake we tend to see when we walk into a client’s kitchen is one fixture is used as the sole light source. When you only have one major lighting fixture in your kitchen, it visually overpowers the space and the people that are using the space.

Did you know that lighting makes a room look larger and brighter? If you have a window in your kitchen the last thing you would want to do is completely deter natural light from entering. Also, make sure that key food prep and cooking areas are well lit, for safe and effective cooking. The last thing you would want is to work/cook in a dark area.

An article we found on HGTV shared some very informative kitchen lighting ideas that we thought our clients would find quite useful. We try to help our clients in any way we can, with these tips we hope to ease some stress on finding the right kitchen lighting for your space.

  1. Avoid using one single light source
  2. Include task lighting
  3. Include ambient lighting, which creates a warm glow
  4. Accent lighting gives your space depth
  5. Dimmers are beneficial to adjust light levels
