Today’s kitchen lighting options combine function with fashion and style. The days of standard track ligjting and overheads are no longer the only option.
Manufacturers have created decorative chandeliers, hanging pendants, and under/above cabinet lighting in a variety of shapes, styles and finishes.
The new kitchen lighting options can transform the kitchen from dull and boring place to a dramatic area by flip of a switch.
Some of the latest designs in kitchen lighting include:
- Undercabinet Lights
- Hanging Lights and Pendants
- Kitchen Chandeliers
- Modern Wooden Light Fixtures
- Design Pro LED Discs for under the cabinets
- Lighted Kitchen Pot Racks
- Modern Inset Lighting (Downlights)
Ambient or General Lighting
Ambient lighting is ‘everywhere’ light used within the home to provide even illumination. Think of it as a background light necessary for every room. Ambient light does not capture one’s attention or create shadows. Instead, it acts as a general light source in the room. Great examples of ambient light include overhead lighting, downlights and fanlights.
Task Lighting/Focal light
Task or Focal lighting is a concentrated source of light with greater intensity than its background. It essentially brings light where the work is to aid in the completion of tasks or projects. Great examples of task/focal light include fixtures placed over project areas such as the kitchen sink, a desktop or a reading chair.
Accent Lighting Decorative light
Accent/Decorative lighting is marked by small but brilliant points of light. It is pleasing to the eye and adds areas of sparkle and drama to the room. Great examples of decorative light include fixtures such as wall sconces, hanging chandeliers, and spotlights.
