Kitchen Lighting Striking the Balance Between Function & Comfort

If you are looking for a fresh look in your kitchen, start with the lighting! The kitchen serves as a food preparation area, but is also the new gathering place for family and friends. Whatever your lighting choice, the balance needs to be met between functionality and comfort.

Most kitchens today only have general lighting, but there are additional lighting types like task and accent lighting that can make your kitchen more equipped for cooking and entertaining. For island counters, nooks, and dinettes, we recommend decorative pendants that can be used with a dimmer control. With the added dimmer control, the fixtures can be adjusted to the perfect amount of light for hobbies, a family business, or a special event.

For countertops, undercabinet lighting will give you adequate lighting for cooking safety and help you see a recipe book without straining your eyes. Undercabinet lighting is set close the front in order to prevent the glare from reflecting off the countertops. You may want to also add accent lighting to your kitchen in order to give your pottery or backsplash mural the attention it deserves.
