Lighting is one of the most important design aspects of your kitchen, as the color and brightness of lights completely transform a room.

If you’re planning a new kitchen, it is very important to create a strategic lighting plan for the space. Lighting adds functionality, drama, and beauty. It is a key component to a great kitchen design! Good kitchen planners will incorporate 3 major types of lighting into a new kitchen; Task lighting, Accent lighting, and General lighting.

An example of task lighting is “under cabinet lighting”. Task lighting illuminates surfaces where food preparation might occur. Today, low voltage LED strip lights or puck lights are commonly used as task lights. Think about the beam spread.

Accent lighting is another important lighting choice when planning a kitchen. It is an excellent way to highlight a decorative hood fan or wine rack, a beautiful painting, or an architectural feature such as a stone fireplace or vaulted ceiling

General lighting is defined as light that fills in any gaps where more lighting is required. Today, kitchen planners typically recommend recessed lights. Pendant lights over an island or a “chandelier style” fixture are also classified as general lighting.

Always remember the importance of lighting when choosing or designing a kitchen.
