Perfect Lighting Choices for Your Kitchen Remodel

No kitchen should ever have just one light. The kitchen is used for numerous activities throughout the day. As you are dreaming of designs for your newly remodeled kitchen, you will want to make sure that you are installing lighting for each workspace in the design. Task lighting makes the kitchen more functional, ambient lighting makes it more attractive, and decorative fixtures bring attention to certain areas. Here are 6 lighting choices that are perfect for your kitchen remodel:

Pendant Lights

Pendant lights work best over a kitchen island or a bar area, because the lights shine down onto the workspace while lending a soft glow to the surrounding areas. These lights are available in different sizes, shapes, and colors, so they can actually act as one of the focal decorative points of your kitchen as well.

Accent Lights

Accent lighting can be installed in the ceiling to spread light throughout the entire room. While these lights are helpful, they should not be used to light up any specific space. Their primary purpose is simply to provide more light as needed.

Under Cabinet Lighting

Under the cabinet lighting is a wonderful feature to have, because it lights up the counter space when it is being used. You will be able to read directions easier when you are preparing meals as well as see what is inside the drawers. They’re a beautiful way to lightly illuminate the kitchen at all times.

Decorative Lighting

Lights inside cabinets with glass doors can add an elegant feeling to any kitchen and these lights will allow you to show off your fine china and fancy stemware. Decorative lighting used in this manner doesn’t necessarily provide adequate lighting to be functional. Consider it decorative only.

Toe-Kick Lighting

Add a soft glow to the room when all of the main lights are off by installing lights at the bottom of the cabinets along the floor. These lights will make it easy to find things in the middle of the night or at least get through the kitchen without bumping into something.

Eat-in Kitchen

Consider a beautiful chandelier or pendant lighting for your eat-in kitchen. Chandeliers are available in many different styles and sizes, so it can be easy to find the perfect one for your remodeled kitchen.
