Kitchen Lighting Guide
Here’s how to make your kitchen shine bright!
As they say, the kitchen is the heart of the home. From making a great British fry up to those celebrations where everyone is huddled around the island, the kitchen is the main room.
A great kitchen lighting system has to power to transform an ordinary room into one truly stunning space. Which is why it’s usually on the to-do list when it comes to renovating a house.
Planning ambient lighting
The best time to install new lighting is back in the planning stage, as you are signing off your kitchen drawings. Consider ambient lighting to be the base layer of the room, it’s the main lighting and makes the room usable.
Consider light layering, focus on areas that you want to highlight – such as an island that will compliment your ambient scheme. Think about walkways and what other fixtures you would like, such as downlights.
As well as the on/off switches, dimmer switches are great for controlling the room and creating a soft, ambient light. With a choice of light sources and different functionalities at your disposal, you can consider a wide flexible control system.
If you are rewiring your kitchen, you’ll want to plan your controls. Most kitchens have more than one entry point, allowing you to make the most of fixtures being controlled from both ends.
A series of beautiful pendant lights or a simple statement piece above a breakfast table can differentiate between zones. Industrial and copper hues are on trend, with low hanging pendants providing a classic and elegant feel.
These are usually more of a design factor, but can also supply a great source of light. Decorative pendants can really change the texture of a room.
Lighting can make your kitchen more bright and practical. LED lights look fantastic and are extremely energy efficient.
