The kitchen island is an important part of many modern kitchens today. It is a place where we cook, prep food and gather with friends and family over bottles of wine and snacks. It is also a place where we serve breakfast or do homework. With so many different activities going on, many wonder if their light fixtures are properly lighting the space. Here are a few tips and tricks for lighting a kitchen island.
Before settling on one type of kitchen lighting scheme over another, take some elements of your kitchen into account, like size, shape, décor color, cabinet placement and color, ceiling height and placement of appliances. These facts will help you decide what the most important areas and appliances to illuminate are, where the more dimly lit areas likely to emerge from, and how negatively color will affect how the lighting is perceived when a person enters the room. Then, you should also take your personal preferences for the room into account. Do you like everything brightly lit when you are cooking or cleaning? Or do you prefer a kitchen with an ambiance that you could dine in if you wanted to? These preferences demand different lighting options.
There are usually multiple lighting fixtures that are used in bathrooms these days. It is due to the fact that the bathrooms are quire spacious and require one lighting just above the mirror so that there is no shadow casting or reflection from the light, one used for the flush area and separate one for the shower zone. hese days it has become a fashion to use small chandeliers in the bathroom that adds to the aesthetic appeal of the bathrooms making them look bigger and brighter.
Fluorescent lighting is still very popular and for home use. There is now the compact bulb which can fit into the sockets previously used by the old incandescent ones. They are cost efficient with energy usage and are a cool light which can be used in many places in a kitchen.
