If you are in the market for new kitchen lighting, odds are you’ve probably arrived at this decision for a specific reason. Maybe things just aren’t bright enough in general, or maybe you’re having a hard time seeing in certain areas of the room. Whatever the case, we can help you find the perfect lighting for your very own kitchen.
Consider Your Safety
Some areas of the kitchen need extra lights, or at least brighter ones. Consider, for example, the area where you prepare your food. Is it properly illuminated? If not, the simple act of cutting ingredients for a recipe could become more dangerous than necessary.
The same is true for areas near cabinets and draws. In dimmer lit situations, it’s possible to pull things from an overhead cabinet and actually bring out more than you intended to. Reaching into an area used to store sharps becomes a whole lot harder to maneuver as well.
When safety is as easy to rectify as adding the appropriate lighting and placement, why not go ahead and take the plunge? It will never be a decision you’ll regret making, as we’ve rarely heard complaints stemming from “too much lighting”.
Consider Special Occasions
Lots of families celebrate certain occasions right from the heart of the home. The kitchen. And why not? In many areas of the country, family get-togethers revolve around good food and good conversation while sitting around the dinner table. For special events like these, you de finitely want to make sure your lighting is appropriate, not too dim or bright and not in the way of those relatives who might be taller than your average Joe.
Work with the Natural Light
If you have several windows in your kitchen, odds are you won’t need as much lighting during the day. But don’t forget evening and nighttime hours. Most people don’t stop using the kitchen simply because the sun goes down. In fact, midnight snacks have been wooing homeowners into their kitchens after hours for years. Don’t let the late-night cravings catch you in the dark.
