Ask any contractor about how important lighting is and they will tell you that it can either make or break your space. Since the kitchen is considered by many to be the heart and soul of your home, it is important that you get the lighting just right. Like any good meal, the lighting in your kitchen needs the perfect amount of balance, and in today’s post, custom shower company Concept Bath Systems shares three tips on how to get the lighting in your kitchen just right.
Tip #1: Invest in Good Overhead Lighting
All well-lit kitchens start with good overhead lighting. This is the main source of light your kitchen receives aside from the natural light that comes through your windows. You should never skimp on overhead lighting and, instead, set aside a budget for high-quality pendant lights, or flush and semi-flush fixtures depending on the look you are going for.
Tip #2: Go for a Layered Look
Many homeowners make the cardinal mistake of using one large lighting fixture for their entire kitchen. Kitchen remodeling experts recommend layering four types of lighting to achieve a balanced feel: Task lighting, ambient lighting, accent lighting and decorative lighting.
Tip #3: Install a Light Dimmer
As with any room in your house, having the ability to adjust the brightness of your lighting fixtures can do wonders in creating a certain atmosphere. Being able to brighten up certain fixtures over work areas when preparing meals or dimming them after dinner can help you customize the ambiance of your kitchen.
