The kitchen is the busiest room in the home. That’s why the kitchen should be properly complimented with appealing lighting design. The most effective lighting for the kitchen involves four layers blended together.
Task lighting focuses on illuminating the preparation zone. Key locations for task lighting include underneath the overhead cabinets and over the island – the places that you’ll be slicing, chopping and reading recipes.
Ambient lighting which could be track lighting, pendants or flush-mounted ceiling fixtures creates a soft warm, inviting glow to the kitchen.
Accent lighting creates focal points within the kitchen and accentuates artwork.
And finally decorative lighting should be chosen in direct proportion to the size of the kitchen – the larger the space the more importance eye-catching fixtures play.
