Bright Ideas to Light Your Kitchen
Kitchens need adequate lighting for you to see what you’re doing in them. If you have an attractive kitchen style design, lighting will help brighten and illuminate the shapes and colours of your kitchen.
Standard kitchens are usually equipped with a few light bulbs on the kitchen ceiling. But they don’t distribute light in the kitchen proportionally. Some areas of your kitchen may appear darker than other areas. If you are faced with this situation, you should think about upgrading your kitchen lighting. It could mean repositioning your existing light sources or adding new light sources to achieve the desired effect.
Here are three bright ideas to light your kitchen.
1) Ambient Lighting
Ambient lighting is sometimes called mood lighting. It provides the overall lighting for your kitchen. The standard light source of your kitchen may not provide the best ambient lighting, depending on the size of your kitchen. Consider using alternative ambient light sources, such as recessed lights, chandeliers, and LED rods.
2) Natural Lighting
If you do a lot of cooking during the day, you should aim for natural lighting for your kitchen. Think about installing some sliding glass doors or additional windows in your kitchen to allow more sunlight inside. If your kitchen is not near the side of your house, you could install skylights on the ceiling to let sunlight through the top of it.
3) Accent Lighting
Accent lighting can illuminate specific areas of your kitchen. They usually come in the form of LED strips that you can install on your kitchen countertops, cabinet doors, and stovetops. Not only do they look attractive, but they can help you see what you’re doing.
