Lighting Your Work Areas
Most of your time in the kitchen is spent cooking and cleaning, which is why it’s imperative to have the right lighting above your countertops and other work areas. Under cabinet lighting is often the way to go, and we can provide fixtures that fit perfectly into your kitchen. Instead of worrying about not being able to see as you chop vegetables or mix ingredients, you’ll have the proper lighting for every task.
As for lighting styles when it comes to under cabinet fixtures, look and feel isn’t of paramount importance, since these lights will be hidden. Their purpose is to provide task and accent lighting for your countertops, helping add to the overall look and feel of your kitchen.
Serving and Entertaining
Another main function of your kitchen is to be a gathering space when you have friends and family over to visit. People naturally gravitate towards the kitchen, which means it needs to be lit properly for serving and entertaining. The kitchen island is an ideal spot for appetizers and snacks, and can be the perfect place for a drink station.
When it comes to lighting the island, pendant fixtures are the optimal choice. Multiple lights above the island surface can help people see as they select their food, as well as provide a comfortable spot for conversation when people are sitting at the island during a party. As for lighting style, you can select anything from Art Deco to Mid-Century Modern fixtures.
Discovering New Styles
If you haven’t updated your kitchen lighting in several years, then you might not be sure which styles suit your tastes. Luckily, our design team can help you decide which options will look best in your home based on your current kitchen layout and what ideas you have in mind for the space. Perhaps you want something in the Craftsman/Mission style, or maybe you’re looking for fixtures with more of a Transitional flavor. Whatever the case may be, you can look through our online catalog to find inspiration, or you can stop by our showroom to see what we have on display.
At The Light Center, we want nothing more than to help you find the perfect kitchen lighting for your home. Stocked with the most popular trends and equipped with the latest knowledge when it comes to lighting, we’re ready to show you amazing fixtures that you’ll love using for years to come.
