Have a space that’s always dark, such as the back of a cabinet or pantry? Install a motion sensor that will activate a puck or LED light when the door is opened. This will help you find that pot you need, or that spice that’s hard to see in the dark cabinet. If you have recessed can lights and want an update, try recessed can converters, which are as easy as screwing in a lightbulb. This will allow you to add stylish pendants for a simple kitchen lighting makeover.
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.
Decide where you want your guests to look by choosing a focal point and illuminating it. Don‘t direct the eye toward a sink area, for instance, where visitors might get a view of your dirty dishes. Here, the Heirloom Pendant is used to light a charming prep area to the side of the kitchen.
