As you walk into the Home Depot or other store to find the best lighting for your kitchen you make feel faint with all the options. This is why you need to do some homework before you head out to the store or even search online. Look at your kitchen carefully. Where do you need the most lighting? The area where you prepare the food of course needs the best illumination so you can read recipes, cut vegetables and of course cook over the stove. You will also need properly lighting over the sink for cleaning vegetables as well as dishes. If you have an island, you will also want this area to be bright when needed.
Ambient lighting is often the most prevalent type of lighting. Its low intensity creates a soft glow that makes it safe to work in most areas of the kitchen. Many people associate ambient lighting with setting the mood in a room not just in kitchens, but in places like restaurants and bars as well. The right amount of ambient light can make a room welcoming and homely.
Lastly, there is decorative lighting. This type of kitchen lighting allows you to make the space truly your own. Whatever the design of the lights, it is important to remember the old adage of "less is more" with decorative lighting. Overdoing it with decorative lighting can make for a gaudy and flashy appearance whereas a minimalist approach can bring an understated refinement to the room.
The four types of lighting to consider before beginning a kitchen remodeling project are task lighting, ambient lighting, decorative lighting and accent lighting. Each of these types of lighting serves a different purpose than the others, so getting acquainted with each one would be to your advantage while you are in the planning stages of your project.
