With the stunning choice of decorative as well as practical lighting to choose from, transforming your kitchen into a delightfully bright place is not at all problematic. You can select from decorative pendant lighting, chandeliers, light fixtures decorated with colored glass, special paper, materials like wrought iron, stainless steel, wood, etc.
The latest trend is to go for energy efficient lighting if you are environmentally conscious. Apart from the style of your light, you will also want to think about the color effect you want to produce so that you have the right atmosphere. Let’s look at different types of kitchen lighting to get a better idea of how to choose the right style.
The general lighting in the kitchen would be called the ambient lighting, which you will use for most activities. Track lighting is ideal for this, so that reflected light use for various areas.
Then comes task lighting, like the type you see in kitchen cabinet lighting. Small sources of light placed overhead also form task lighting, and these are used to light specific tasks.
Lighting systems like low voltage kitchen track lighting, monorail lighting is flexible. These can bend in different ways to enhance brightness around a particular object or area. A combination of ambient, task and decorative lighting can be used to define the personality of your kitchen.
