How To Plan Your Kitchen Lighting

When it comes to kitchens, lighting is more than just the icing on the cake.

Get it right, and you'll have a multifunctional, atmospheric kitchen that's as impressive at 9pm as it is at 9am. Get it wrong, and you could find yourself trying to cut carrots in a dark corner, with a foul mood to boot.

Kitchen Ceiling Lighting

We all know scenic Scotland's winters can be rough, so regardless of the kitchen size, you’ll need some bright and essential ceiling lights that will illuminate the whole space.

The most popular choice is LED lighting because they have low heat emissions, making them energy-saving, friendlier on the environment and require minimum upkeep.

Task Lighting

Using spotlights or small lamps to highlight specific areas of the room is a great way to flood areas that lack natural light but often get used, such as the chef’s space.

This type of kitchen lighting can also and bring attention to appliances, islands or seating areas.

Mood and Statement Lighting

Mood and statement lighting is a great way to inject personality and style into a kitchen both with the type of light it creates, and also how the light itself looks.

Pendant light works well for this, especially hung over a dining table or kitchen island help to section off an 'eating' area of the kitchen. When lit on their own, they also create an excellent atmosphere to dine in.

We love the Sensio Zirconia Pendant lights in the image above.
