Of course, the kitchen cannot stand on its own. Rather, the person who makes use of this cannot make use of its full potential without the things that would make it more conducive for use. One of these things that I am talking about is the lighting. Just how important is the lighting for a kitchen, really? You might ask. Yes, the kitchen may be home for cooking and baking and food slicing and food-preparing, but it is also for recipe-reading, for most people. And when we talk about reading, we are also talking about lights.
Mini Pendant Lights - As the tiniest version these can illuminate work spaces and kitchen islands well. They’re not thought of as ambient lighting, but can reinvent the feeling within a space more than any other options. They act as a focal point, or a lighting work of art as they are super stylish and can be quite chic. Anyone will find that they command attention and create vigor.
In the dining room, these lights can replace the classic chandelier of days past to play with the appearance and style completely. The lights should be thirty to thirty-six inches above the table, and possibly higher for a larger table. A lower placed light will create a cozy atmosphere, but beware of having it so low that it shines into diners’ eyes.
The kitchen is a work area and as such needs to have lighting other than general purpose lighting. Take a look around at the dark spots in the kitchen. Maybe adding some under cabinet lighting would help showcase your counter tops while providing much needed light for that work area. Perhaps over the kitchen island there needs to be a series of small, more direct lighting fixtures to help in food preparation. Over the kitchen or dining room table, installing lights that can be on a dimming switch can create quite the mood. And when it's time to get the homework done with the kids, the switch can be turned up a few notches to insure proper light that will help with eye strain.
Larger pendants and chandeliers are common place in a kitchen over an eating area. These provide an anchor above your table and complete the space whether it is portioned off by a wall or is a part of another room.
