KITCHEN & BACKSTAGE
Kitchen Lighting Essentials
As the heart and soul of your home, your kitchen deserves to be stylish, inviting, and well-lit. Kitchen lighting serves as an opportunity to express your unique style while infusing the room with character. Be bold, make a statement with standout lighting pieces that truly shine in your kitchen space.
Choosing the Right Kitchen Lighting
There are numerous types of kitchen lighting available, from the functional under-cabinet fixtures to the statement-making island lights. Consider how your kitchen space is utilized throughout the day, identify the lighting needs, and choose fixtures that combine both style and practicality.
Pendant lights are a versatile lighting solution that add a touch of elegance to any kitchen. They can be small or large, casting focused light on the space below. A solitary pendant light can hang gracefully above a kitchen sink, or they can be grouped together, running along the length of a countertop for added effect.
Make your casual, low-ceiling dining spaces glow with warmth and light by installing ceiling lights. This simple touch can transform your kitchen into an inviting gathering spot.
Properly lit kitchen islands can serve as a stunning focal point. If storage is a challenge, consider lighted pot racks, an innovative solution that combines pot storage with essential lighting.
Add a dash of sophistication over your dining area with a well-chosen chandelier. In an open floor plan, a chandelier that complements your kitchen lighting can beautifully unify the kitchen and dining room aesthetics.
Under-cabinet lighting is a discreet, practical addition that enhances your meal preparation experience. These hidden, often battery-operated lights create a clutter-free design while providing necessary illumination.
For multipoint illumination, consider track lighting. Each light on the track is adjustable, allowing you to focus the light where it's most needed.
Install wall lights to create layers of illumination in your kitchen, casting light upward or downward for added ambiance.
For a clean, minimalist look, opt for recessed lighting. Installed over crucial work areas like the stove, sink, island, and dining area, recessed lights provide ample light for safe cooking and food preparation.
Tips for Choosing Stylish Kitchen Lighting Once you've identified your kitchen's lighting needs, narrow down your options based on a few key factors: the overall design style of your kitchen, the size and finish of the fixture, and the need for energy efficiency (LED light bulbs are a good choice here).
Consider the following when choosing your fixtures:
• Bulb Type
• Hanging Height
• Energy Efficiency
