Jul 27

When you are home, you probably spend most of your time in the kitchen. Kitchens are the heart of the home. It serves as both a place to prepare meals and cook as well as a gathering space for family and friends.

So, whether you are showing off your culinary skills, pouring a glass of wine for friends or serving dinner to your family,  you want to present everything in the best light possible. Here are some tips to get your kitchen to shine bright like a diamond!

Top Kitchen Lighting Tips

Bring it Down Under!

Under cabinet lighting can be an easy and inexpensive way to add light to your kitchen. Under cabinet lighting not only adds a pleasing aesthetic, but it’s also functional too. Place under cabinet lighting in dark spots such as corner cabinets and other under-lit areas above your countertops.

Shine From Above!

If your ceiling light seems to be a bit dated, consider a more contemporary upgrade or traditional style that is timeless. For example, you may want to try a chandelier that brings a classic look or go with a more modern and sleek chandelier design that doesn’t necessarily have a lot of “bling.”

If your kitchen is extremely under-lit, add extra recessed fixtures for more even lighting. Recessed lighting is also perfect for over countertops and island bars. You can also add pendant lights over breakfast bars and islands as a source for task lighting when prepping meals and other kitchen tasks. If you want to be able to position your lights as needed, track lighting is another fantastic option.

Get in the Mood!

Add a little bit of ambiance to your kitchen decor with dimmer switches. Installing dimmer switches can give you the option to set your lighting to as bright or as dim as you want. For example, use a lower light setting for a dinner party, but turn up the brightness for the kids doing their homework at the kitchen table. Another way to set up the mood is to add decorative wall sconce lighting to your kitchen decor.
