For spacing, there should be 30 to 32 inches of space between an islands counter and the fixture’s lowest-hanging point, as in this kitchen featuring Hollis 4-Light Pendants. Multiply the square footage of the countertop area by 2.5 to determine how many watts of incandescent light you will need. Shown is a grouping of Wadsworth Semi Flushmounts.
Plumbing and wiring can also interfere with the installation of recessed lights, particularly if your kitchen is below an upstairs bathroom. And, because recessed lights are above the face of the ceiling, they do not illuminate broad areas. It will take several of them to provide full general illumination for the average kitchen.
Adding light dimmer switches in the kitchen makes sense because bright illumination makes tasks easier, while dimmed lights help with ambiance after the meal. Adding separate kitchen lighting dimmers for each fixture will help you customize the lighting for the situation. Accent kitchen lighting gives depth and dimension to your space. For example, if you have a cabinet to store decorative glassware or a china collection, find the right type of LED light for the space.
Custom fluorescent panel designs are also available through reputable dealers. This gives the opportunity to really transform a kitchen into something special and truly unique. Give the space a personal touch through printing an image personally designed by you or even an image that inspires an area.
