Whether you’re enjoying a cup of coffee on a rainy day, listening to your family’s happy chatter, or cooking up a romantic evening for two, the kitchen has become one of the focal points of the home. If you’re planning a kitchen remodel or just want to brighten up your workspace, there are some exciting new trends in kitchen lighting.
The placement of your lighting is almost as important as the overall design of the kitchen. Use your lights to really highlight and show off your space.
Ambient Lighting. Ambient lighting helps to create the overall illumination of a room. Be conscious of the size of your kitchen when choosing your fixtures.
Task Lighting. Task lighting, or purpose oriented lighting, can be a way to make your space more energy efficient. Instead of lighting the whole kitchen at once, take advantage of this option by strategically placing your lights.
Natural Lighting. Make the most of natural light by installing windows or skylights. Take advantage of whatever sunlight is available and cut down on energy costs.
Unlike the old-days when you only had two finishes to choose from, chrome and polished brass, there are now a wide range of options to choose from. Some of the following links have some beautiful examples of current styles.
