Trends In Indoor Lighting For The Kitchen

When it comes to fitting out your house with indoor lighting, no room is as important as the kitchen. This is because the kitchen is one of the busiest rooms in the house – and the most prone to accidents – so it needs to be bright. You can forget the standard globe suspended in the middle of the ceiling, however, with these emerging trends:

Up Lights
These are generally installed in the tops of cabinets and are used to highlight an exceptionally raised ceiling. It also helps to illuminate otherwise dark corners, warding off those nasty critters that like to live there.

Under Counter
These forms of indoor lighting are used to brighten counter tops in your kitchen, making it much easier to see what you are doing.

Halogen Lights
These indoor lighting solutions are commonly installed inside a cabinet and are used to showcase collections and breakables, such as your fine china.

Task Lighting
Generally installed over an island bench or counter, these forms of indoor lighting are designed to illuminate most of the kitchen area. Installing a hood that has built-in lights is also great for times you’re cooking at the stove.

Shatterproof and fluorescent globes are also becoming increasingly popular for installation in kitchen areas. In the case of fluorescent globes, this is because they are ideal for creating the perfect level of brightness in your kitchen without a harsh glare. They are also environmentally friendly.

When it comes to choosing indoor lighting for your kitchen area, you want to ensure you are choosing lights that will not only illuminate the space for all to see, but that will also help your kitchen to become as safe as possible.
