The main light in the kitchen will usually be the one located in the middle of the ceiling and will be the centerpiece of your kitchen lighting design. For this one, you have several options, but cost and energy efficiency should always be considered. You do not need to use kitchen lighting fixtures here that are too bright, especially if you will have additional lights above counter tops, or if you have a large window to let in sunlight. This is where you can save a lot by using an energy efficient lighting fixture that has a neutral color. Kitchen lighting design options for this location are neon lights and hanging kitchen lights.
Accent lights are used to bring focus to various details in the bathroom, such as art piece, sculptures or architectural design in the bathroom tiles. These small recessed lights are able to attract attention to these details without taking up excess space on the counter. On the other hand they will help to make your bathroom look more interesting and sophisticated.
Installing lighting under the cabinets in your kitchen gives off a great effect and is not as difficult as you may realise. You do not have to be a fully qualified electrician to install them as there are simple kits you can purchase from your local home improvement store which makes this job very easy. If you purchase one of the kits for lighting under the kitchen cabinets, you will find a socket at the end of each unit. This is to allow you to add more lights if needed. It is a case of buying a few more and adding to the existing lights like a daisy chain.
For other fixtures, such as pendant lights or recessed lights, you will want to center the lights over the areas that you will be working most at. For example, if you have a stove top on your kitchen island, you will want to have a light over that. If you have a designated prep space, you will want to have a light for that, as well. Remember to keep spacing in mind, as you do not want any of these light fixtures to be too close or too far apart.
