The kitchen is the heart of the home, where people gather and great food is made. It has many different uses and should be warm and homely so you enjoy the time you spend here. The kitchen is one of the few rooms that we actually use throughout the entire day. It is one of the first we use when we get up and one of the last before we go to bed. The lighting used in this room should reflect this by being bright and inviting, creating an atmosphere that you want to spend time in. A lot of practical work also goes on in the kitchen and there is a need for bright lights to allow you to see what you are doing. The kitchen can be a dangerous place when cooking is going on, with sharp knives and boiling pots and pans. A well-lit kitchen will help keep you and your family safe as well as letting you get on with preparing meals without being slowed down by bad lighting.
At Ideas4Lighting we have plenty of kitchen lighting ideas. Whatever your kitchen decoration, be it country, urban, classical or contemporary, we have lights that will fit perfectly into your home.
In the kitchen you need plenty of room to move and recessed or flush and semi-flush lights are very popular here. These allow you to make the most of the room you have and minimize risk of bumping into low hanging lights. Another popular lighting feature in this room is kitchen island pendant lighting. This allows you to work with plenty of light focused on whatever you’re doing. This is also a great way to create a focal point in the kitchen, by drawing the eye to the island. Spotlights or kitchen track lighting is also very popular as these lights are bright and you can move them to highlight certain features or brighten dark corners.
Using kitchen lamps such as floor lamps or table lamps that can sit on the kitchen counter is also a great way to create layers of lighting in your home. This allows you to minimize the amount of lights you use, if you are not in need of bright overhead lights.
