When considering your main overhead kitchen lighting options, light designers say there is such a thing as too much. Try to keep to one main bold piece, or two to three pendants over an area. Competing hanging fixtures can make a kitchen look cluttered. And if more lighting is needed for work spaces, try affordable track lighting or under-cabinet lights.
Similarly to kitchens as a whole, lighting has taken on a new sense of form in modern kitchens. Whether your style is traditional with an ornate chandelier gracing your kitchen island or if you prefer a minimal set of pendants lamps – embrace lighting in your kitchen. Look to the New Generation of Wolf ovens and Sub Zero refrigerators to offer better lighting inside them for better visibility for you to see your food and to create a gorgeous experience preparing your meals.
Surface-mounted light fixtures were the standard choice for most general kitchen lighting from the early 20th century into the 1980s. That‘s when recessed fixtures first became widely available, and took the lead for a couple of decades. Then, with a growing awareness of the greater efficiency of a closed ceiling plus the design of more attractive units, surface light fixtures started to make a comeback.
The practice of applying good lighting design is a popular and cost effective project witch many homeowners choose to undertake in order to give their kitchens an extra personal touch and have it stand out from others.
