Lighting truly brings a room together and nothing affects the mood and function of a space like lighting. The kitchen is a room that deserves a lot of attention when lighting your home and it is usually the most utilized and fundamental room in the house; its where people habitually come and share their time together. You should make sure to have your two main lights positioned over a main table, Island and or counter tops. Your kitchen should also have LED recessed cans and Under Cabinet Lighting in order to give the space different levels of light.

Wall Sconces provide soothing, indirect light and can also create a dramatic effect on your walls – great places for sconces are dining rooms, study, master bedrooms, hallways and powder rooms.

Bathrooms should be lit with an overhead Mini Chandelier as well as a light over the mirror or side sconces. With varying levels of light your bathroom will be shadow free.

Why Choose LED?

The answers are simple. LED lights effectively convert the highest percentage of consumed energy into light output. The percentage nearly triples that of incandescent bulbs. Additionally, incandescent bulbs convert most of their consumed energy into heat and very little into light. LED lights are built with Heat Sink components that maximize their light output and minimize the conversion of energy to heat.

LED Bulbs also last about 55 times longer than Incandescent bulbs. You will not only reduce landfill waste, you will rarely have to pull your ladder out of the garage to replace another bulb.

Light Emitting Diode, or LED, is a form of lighting that has been used in electronic equipment since 1962. So why is it just now becoming a popular and efficient form of home lighting? Initial designs of LED lighting did not produce the appropriate white light for practical household use. Additionally they did not emit enough light. In recent years, the progression of technology has enabled LED manufacturers to create a the most efficient light on the market without sacrificing the color or quality of the light. In addition, where LED lights used to be expensive, technology has also brought them significantly down in price.

Kitchen LightingWhether you’re preparing meals, reading the newspaper or hanging out with family or friends, the kitchen is a constant place of activity that require sufficient lighting to accomplish everyday tasks and provide a comfortable setting.

Decorative island lighting and kitchen pendant lighting mounted in the center of a work space or above an island will provide a sufficient amount of general light and task lighting when you need it most.

For busy work areas such as the sink and stove, install track lighting or down lights mounted off the cabinets to give you extra brightness as you wash dishes or get ready for a meal. Continue Reading Kitchen Lighting
