One of the biggest impacts in a kitchen comes from the lighting.
Good task lighting is a must.
I mean, who wants to work in a dark kitchen?
Task lighting comes mostly from ceiling recessed lights and under cabinet lighting,
so it's good to get this right.
If recessed lights are not positioned correctly you'll find yourself working in the shadows.
Shadows from the recessed light hitting the upper cabinets causing shadows on the counter below
shadows due to the recessed light being located too far back
and you will be casting the shadow on the counter as light hits you from behind.
Under-the-counter lighting is a wonderful thing and is even better when it can be dimmed.
Sometimes you need bright light to work by
and other times you may prefer a soft glow of light.
These are some of the things we are having to consider as we move forward with our kitchen reno.
But let's face it, as important as task lighting is,
the biggest impact...the WOW factor...comes from the hanging light fixtures,
and the options are limitless!
What's your style? The fancy chandelier...
a nod to history...
a nod to the school house...
how about the carriage style...
or a fixture with several lights in one...
And then there's this light fixture in Alison's kitchen, one of my favorites...
So many lighting options aren't there...do you have a favorite?
Hop on over for a tour of Alison's kitchen, it is amazing!
