A kitchen without high quality, smart lighting can lose its appeal instantly. No matter how well put together your kitchen décor is, if it’s true potential can’t be showcased as it is under dim lighting, then there is no point going through the time, effort, and money to pick a theme and layout you are happy with.
A lack of quality lighting can also become a problem from a safety aspect too. Poor lighting can result in trips and falls if you are unable to see if there is anything loose lying around on the floor around you, especially at night when there is no natural light to be of assistance!
This is why at Kitchen Warehouse we thought we would let you in on some of our favourite lighting solutions to make your kitchen an appealing place to be…
Ever thought about lighting your cabinets?
How many times have you had to scramble around the inside of your kitchen units to find something you need as the area isn’t well lit? You shouldn’t have to deal with this problem on a daily basis, so why not invest in some kitchen cabinet lights?
These can be implemented in multiple ways, either by building them into the actual cabinet itself or using stick-on lights to make it a quick and easy way of adding a whole new element to your kitchen. The choice is yours as to how you freshen up the look of your room for years to come.
Keep your lights on theme
The colourway of your kitchen décor should run consistently throughout the whole area if you are looking to achieve the best possible results. This extends to everywhere in your kitchen, from kitchen doors and units to walls and the colour of your appliances. This is also true with the colour of your lights, with many available on the web or in stores that will be sure to fit with your dream design. Lights are a vital part of making your kitchen vibrant, so ensure these don’t turn out to be an eyesore by not fitting in with your set colour scheme!
Even out your lighting
Some kitchens are guilty of only having one centralised light, which can really limit the illusion of space that is the holy grail of any kitchen design. This is especially true for kitchens that are small in size, as they clamber to find as much space as they can, even if this is not physically there.
To accomplish the feeling of more space in the room, then it is a good idea to even out the lighting whether this is on the roof or walls. This allows you to be constantly walking into the light instead of having your back to it. Trust us, this little lighting trick will make your room feel so much bigger!
Take ultimate control over your lighting
If your kitchen larges many different lighting options, then we are sure there will be times when they are not all needed at once. However, with 1 or 2 centralised switches for all lights, you might be doing yourself a disservice. To experiment with different moods and to improve your kitchen’s versatility, you may want to make sure that all of your lights are controlled separately. This helps to distinguish a softer mood at night time and a brighter mood throughout the day if preparing food.
