Kitchen Must Be Properly Lit

There is something incredibly important about making sure you have a kitchen that is properly lit. This is to say, you need to be sure you can work with a kitchen space that has the correct amount of lighting to allow you to do everything you need to do in that space.

The lighting shouldn’t be too bright or dim to cause damage to your eyes. That is a delicate balance to try to strike, but it can be done. You just need to think about how light is used in your space and what you can do to improve the quality and quantity of the light you do use throughout your home. 

Four Key Layers of Light 

You might not realize it, but there are four key layers of light you need to have available in your home to create the kind of lighting you require for doing everyday activities. Those layers of light include the following: 

Task Lighting

This is the type of lighting you place over the parts of your kitchen where you get specific kitchen-related tasks accomplished. In other words, this is the kind of light that goes over your faucet, your counters, and anywhere else you specifically use for functional purposes in your kitchen. 

Accent Lighting

This is lighting to add depth and dimension to your home. It is something that you need to balance carefully throughout the kitchen to create a space that truly works for you. 

Decorative Lighting

Sometimes the only purpose for having a specific light fixture in a certain spot is to create a decorative look to that area. There are people who apply this to the way they set up their kitchen, and it makes sense that some people prefer decorative lighting in certain circumstances.

Ambient Lighting

Don’t forget about some of the ambient lighting that you might need to use in your home as well. You can choose lighting options that allow you to have layers of light that bounce off of the walls of your home and that create the exact effects that you desire.

Make sure you spend some time with your lighting fixtures to get them set up in just the way that you desire. You need to get this all laid out just right, so you don’t miss the opportunity to have a kitchen that is lit the way you want it to be.
