A Quick Guide to Stunning LED Kitchen Lighting
- 27 Oct, 2017
Whether you're a budding Bake Off wannabe, or a Gordon Ramsay supremo, your kitchen lighting setup is very important. The kitchen is the heart of your home, where heavenly dishes (or hellish disasters) are whipped-up, and the family meet to catch-up and discuss their day. So, what are the key considerations when creating a kitchen lighting plan? First off, it should be practical. When you're knuckling-down to a tricky dish, you can't be squinting over poorly-lit pots and pans. You need crisp and clear lighting that's perfect for tasks where timing and accuracy is of the essence – especially for cooker hoods and kitchen appliances. Secondly, it should be welcoming. If you, like many, dine in the kitchen area or have open plan living, the area that family, friends and guests congregate in needs to be one of warmth and appeal, allowing people to relax. Finally, it must work with your current décor. The modern kitchen is usually a place of predominantly white and steel colours with modern appliances, so fresh and crisp lighting is key. However, if you have a homely or vintage-inspired kitchen, then warmer light tones may be better. If you want to add a bit of glamour to proceedings, then you might want to add a splash of colour in the form of LED strip lighting to bring worktops and cabinets to life.
