Great Kitchen Lighting Ideas
Use different types of lighting
Get different moods by switching between types of lighting. Wall lights, spotlights, and recessed lighting are all good options to have.
Add in natural light where possible
Don’t rely purely on artificial lighting. Let natural light flood in as much as you can. If there's limited window space, adding mirrors helps.
Consider the industrial look
Get an industrial kitchen style by adding things like large metal frames. Exposed wiring and bare bulbs also fit this style well.
Fit some vintage lights
Use the vintage look to good effect. Refurbished lamps and light fittings can work wonders in giving your kitchen a classy look.
Install dimmer switches
Get the perfect lighting for cooking and dining experiences. Use a dimmer to achieve different moods in the same room.
