Adding layers of light and other tips for enhancing the most popular gathering space in your home.
Bring your kitchen to life with carefully chosen and thoughtfully placed lighting fixtures. Whether preparing a meal or hosting a casual get-together, you’ll love how multiple layers of light can change your kitchen’s mood to suit the moment. A well-designed plan provides ideal lighting for every situation.
Begin by imagining all the activities that will take place here – dining on the island, food preparation on the counter, reading the morning newspaper – and consider layering light in such a way that will help you be the most productive and comfortable in this space.
When considering general lighting needs, even light distribution and flexibility are essential. Consider recessed fixtures spaced evenly throughout the kitchen, with additional lighting positioned above islands, working countertops, sinks and ranges.
