In good olden days, kitchen rooms did not get the attention they deserved during designing for proper ventilation, illumination and other facilities. But the modern kitchens are now best cared and becoming favourite part of homes for the family members for dining, having coffee or snacks together. The same is true for kitchens in restaurants and canteens.
Modern looks of kitchen are further enhanced by the stylish and functional kitchen light, fixtures and accessories.
According to professional lighting designers, requirements of kitchen light are very specific and more challenging due to shelves, cabinets and appliances which are used in kitchens. You need to provide kitchen light to facilitate task of food preparation and to create proper ambience for other functions and activities. The first and most important considerations in kitchen lighting, also called task lighting, is to ensure that certain areas of kitchen are best lit and won’t have shadow at places such as sinks, tables or counters. Small under cabinet kitchen light is good for illumination of pantries and closets. Fluorescent tubes, directional lights and spot lights are some of the best kitchen light options.
Ambient kitchen light provides overall illumination in the kitchen. Incandescent down lights are best suited for broad and even illumination and lend very good effect to the kitchen. Cabinets in kitchen can be made to look more attractive using cabinet kitchen light. Cabinet lights provide sufficient light for displays as well as for working.
Right selection of kitchen light not only adds convenience to the functions in kitchen, but also enhances warmth and décor of the room.
