kitchen lighting checklist

tips for kitchen lighting

1. Start planning the lighting portion of your kitchen project early in the process.

2. Think about the lighting you have had in the past, how you will be using your new kitchen space, and what you hope to achieve in your new kitchen.

3. A central ceiling light with under cabinet in the task areas may be sufficient for a small kitchen. Larger kitchens present opportunities for using different light sources in combination.

4. Recessed lighting effectively illuminates counter and island areas with higher levels of light. Be sure to place the lights almost directly over the counters to avoid creating shadows. Adjustables may allow fine-tuning to light counters and cabinets. Recessed lights can also be used for general lighting, with special attention paid to placement for good general illumination.

5. For counter areas with cabinets directly above, under cabinet lights can be placed to eliminate shadows and dark areas. Under-cabinet lighting should generally be placed toward the front of the cabinet, with the light source hitting the backsplash.

6. Placing linear light sources above the cabinets is a beautiful design element that also adds function to your new kitchen. This will either brighten the ceiling or create a warm glow.

7. Pendants, mini pendants, or decorative chandeliers can be placed over the island or table for task lighting as well as for more ambient lighting.

8. Explore our Green Zone to discover the great kitchen lighting options available in LED lights and fluorescent lighting. Learn how dimmers and lighting control systems can reduce power consumption and save you money on your energy bill.
