Busy lifestyles, multitasking family members and sustainable living trends have pushed the kitchen forward and under the limelight of the modern home. As the kitchen becomes the central social, entertaining and living space, the approach to designing the area has shifted from merely practical to a more aesthetic framework. Elements that were once thought of as belonging only to the more formal receiving areas, such chandeliers or modern artworks, now have their strategic places that make eating, dining, working and socialising in the kitchen more fun and comfortable.
To help homeowners achieve the look they want for their dream kitchens, leading lighting solutions supplier Lights2You recently provided expert guidelines on designing lighting systems engineered to enhance the appeal and the mood of the kitchen.
According to a representative of Lights2You, the use of pendant lighting is becoming the emerging choice for homeowners wanting to achieve a balance of character, style and the right illumination: “Pendant lights are fast-becoming a popular option because the models can provide either general and directional lighting, helping you manage the right amount of light you need for the space, and where you want it to shine.” The lighting expert adds that pendant lights can be easily integrated with other lighting systems, such as wall lights or table lamps, to create that sought-after high-low textured lighting effect.
The iconic design of pendant lights and their versatility in colour, material and make easily meet the decorative flair needed to personalise a space. “For instance, the three-drop light pendant from Lights2You is highly recommended for hanging above kitchen bench tops, which is the mark of working, busy and modern kitchens today. The double glass diffusers with an opal inner glass can be perfect for the trendiest looks today—industrial chic, modern minimalist and bold and bright styles.”
A lighting professional can also help customers identify the places that need more illumination, and the right fixture to provide it. “Lights that create a focused spotlight effect on work, preparation and cooking areas when you need it, and can be dimmed or turned off when you don’t anymore, is a great way to achieve the sense of style and practicality that you’re looking for,” the lighting specialist says.
“Beautiful lighting in the kitchen helps you work more safely and efficiently, sets the mood you want to convey, and can make good food look even more appetizing. Invest in proper lighting, get more value for your space, and enjoy hanging out with your family in the heart and hearth of your home,” concludes the Lights2You lighting expert.
