Whether you are planning a kitchen remodeling project or just looking to change up the kitchen that you love, kitchen lighting is truly an art. With so many different fixtures and light bulbs on the market, it can be difficult to pick the ones that meet all of your needs. Here are some of our best tips to decode the mysteries of kitchen lighting and stop squinting once and for all.
Plan It Out
Take the time to plan out your kitchen lighting before you make any purchases. All of the work areas in your kitchen that you use for prepping, chopping, cooking, and baking should have good lighting available. The best kitchen lighting should integrate a variety of different types of lighting to allow you to prepare food safely, entertain family and friends, and have a late-night snack without being blinded.
Consider Your Existing Kitchen
If you are simply updating your existing kitchen, what about your current kitchen lighting don’t you like? Consider what you currently have and take the time to examine your kitchen thoroughly. How big is your kitchen? What is the layout? What styles do you use in your kitchen? Depending on the answers to these questions, you will be able to choose your ideal kitchen lighting.
Function Over Form
Last but not least, consider the function of every type of kitchen lighting that you need. If your favorite light fixtures won’t be able to provide you with the task lighting that you need, you will need to choose other light fixtures, move those light fixtures to another part of your kitchen, or move your task area to another portion of your kitchen. When you work with the professionals at Cypress Construction, we will work with you to make sure that your kitchen lighting is adequate for everything that you love to do in your kitchen, whether it’s making chocolate souffles or grilling.
