3 Steps to Creating the Best Kitchen Lighting Ambience
Having a perfectly lit kitchen, that provides just the right amount of light, can be done using these tips
Recessed, or can, lighting provides all-over lighting for kitchens. Each light should be spaced expertly apart to achieve a soft ambiance. Rule of thumb is to divide the height of the ceiling by 2 and using that number as a spacing guideline (in feet).
Use task lighting to highlight specific areas of the kitchen. For example, cooking surfaces, counters, and tables need a direct light source so you can see what you’re doing. It’s also a good idea to add lighting under cabinets and inside glass cupboards.
Add some style to the atmosphere with pendant lighting. They come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors that work together creating the perfect ambiance. Pendants should be hung about 30 inches above work areas, countertops, islands, and tables for extra illumination.
