Amazing Kitchen Lighting Design Guide
– When it comes to kitchen lighting, the most frequent mistake is attempting to light the entire room with one fixture. The end result ends up being exactly what Whitehead calls a “glare bomb,” which visually overpowers everything in the area. Recessed lighting, if installed in a generic grid, is not much better.
As in any room in the home, the ability to correct light levels in the kitchen is best. When cleaning or cooking up, a glowing pinch of illumination makes the job easier. For lingering over a meal and conversing, dimmed lights create ambiance that is great. One humanist in the kitchen will not do the trick. Make sure that the design calls for different dimmers for every type of kitchen lighting: ambient task, decorative and accent.
