For many people, the kitchen is the most lived-in part of the home. It is where you prepare meals, have snacks, and do many other things. It is essential that your kitchen has the right lighting options so that you can see what you are cooking, the kids can see to do their homework, and mood lighting can be created for a romantic meal. Read on for some ideas and then contact Mission West Kitchen & Bath at (626) 799-3503 for comprehensive assistance.
Begin with the Overhead Lights
First and foremost, you want to make sure you are starting with the overhead lights. This is where good overall kitchen lighting begins. Think of it as ambient lighting that is designed to reinforce any natural light that comes into the kitchen. Overhead light options including pendants, flush, or even semi-flush fixtures.
Add Support Lighting
After you have the overhead lighting settled, then you can start to layer in support lighting. Think of areas that will need extra space, and which areas you want to highlight. The answers to these questions will be different for everyone, but you can talk to Mission West Kitchen & Bath for design assistance.
Illuminate Your Island
If your kitchen has an island, then it will need its own lighting. In most cases, islands are used as multipurpose areas for prepping, serving meals, and even cooking. You can add pendant lighting above or a small chandelier for overall lighting. If there’s already enough overall lighting in the kitchen, add support lighting for your island, such as directional lights that illuminate for tasks.
Shine a Spotlight Above the Sink
If you surveyed 100 people about their kitchen remodel and ask them where they wished they’d added more light, many of them would tell you that they wished they had more light above their sink. This is an area that many people don’t think much about, but in fact, it is where you will be washing dishes, cleaning food, and doing other tasks that require a lot of lighting. What’s more, many people handle these tasks at night.
