How do you light a kitchen?
Good kitchen lighting is so important!

Cornwall Lighting Experts describe the most suitable lighting for one of the busiest rooms in many homes- the kitchen. Today's multi-functional kitchen spaces are not only used for cooking, but also for visiting with friends, home work, reading the paper, and just relaxing.

The days of the single dim overhead kitchen lighting fixture are over! As with all home lighting it is important to create multiple layers of light. Task lighting, ambient lighting and accent lighting will together create an inviting, livable space.

Kitchen counters and other work areas need to be well lit and free of shadows. Fluorescent or low voltage undercabinet lighting strips provide effective task lighting. Fluorescent lighting fixtures are well suited because they are efficient , providing more lumens per watt. They do not put out much heat and they create an even light. And, with the newer electronic ballasts they do not flicker or hum anymore!
Low voltage lighting dims more easily and lights decorative objects and surfaces dramatically. Over shiny, black marble surfaces they will create drama, but be aware: they will also give off a lot of glare. Any of our Conrwall Lighting Specialists will be glad to help you with any queries you may have in choosing the correct lighting for your living space.

If you are illuminating a kitchen island with a very reflective surface and this is your primary work area you might want to choose a fixture where the low voltage bulb is does not shine directly onto the work area, or even choose a softer light source, like an incandescent or fluorescent fixture.
A breakfast area is also frequently used for reading, so good overhead light is a must. Here the decor determines the style: from chandeliers to high-tech flexible track lighting with colorful pendants the choice is yours.

Ambient light is needed for all casual activities . It permits comfortable clean-up and easy view into drawers. Recessed downlights or fluorescent lighting are good choices.
In a contemporary kitchen a low voltage monorail with a variety of track heads and colorful glass mini-pendants can curve through the work and dining areas without interruption of design. The spots can highlight decorative features in the kitchen like collections of canisters on top of cabinets while providing ambient light.

Our local Cornwall Lighting Experts offer creative lighting solutions for all interior and exterior environments. Expert design and consultancy services offered and a wide range of lighting solutions and a full fitting service.
