As the heart of the home, kitchens have different lighting needs than other rooms. There is the practical matter of creating enough task lighting for people to prepare meals, but also the need to craft a welcoming, warm environment for guests to enjoy without too much fuss or formality. We asked the experts at Hudson Valley Lighting for their top tips on how to create a well-lit, inviting kitchen, regardless of type of home.
If there’s one place the worlds of form and function seamlessly meet it’s in the kitchen. And upgrading the lighting is an way to add a fresh dose of style and substance to the space. Even if you don’t have a major kitchen remodel in your future, a simple lighting swap — from adding some architectural track lighting to installing a dramatic chandelier — might be all it takes to upgrade the entire kitchen. Lighting is a lot like painting in that way: it can be an inexpensive, but impressive way to transform the room in a single afternoon.
For bigger kitchens, you may want to consider a light that uses tube bulbs. These lights are longer than standard fixtures, allowing them to light up a bigger area and keep your kitchen bright. In this category, the Lithonia Lighting Futra 2-Light Brushed Nickel Fluorescent Ceiling Light is a good buy, as its 52-inch design will reduce the need for multiple lights in your kitchen.
