Pro Tips // How to Create a Cohesive, Well-Lit Kitchen

The kitchen is the most used room in the house. Today, a kitchen is not just limited to cooking but it is a place where you spend time with family, host friends, and sometimes help kids with their homework too. 

Therefore, it is very important to have modern lighting to create a warm and welcoming space. So, if you are planning to give your kitchen a makeover, keep these small tips and tricks in mind. 

 

1// LAYER THE LIGHTING 
If you want to design your kitchen like a professional interior designer, make sure you include all the layers of lighting. A well-lit space has ambient lights, task lights, and decorative lights. Using all these types of lights can enhance the kitchen interiors instantly! Also, try to optimize the inflow of natural sunlight in the kitchen. 

 

2// PAY ATTENTION TO THE TONE 
Keep a watch on the tone and wattage of the light you are opting for the room. Especially when it comes to managing all the different pendants and light sconces, people fail to maintain the same temperature of light. This ends up creating low lit spaces and dead shadows which can totally mess the aesthetics of your kitchen.

 

3// SET UP MOOD LIGHTING 
Mood lightings are best when you want to have a cozy vibe. Dimmers look amazing during date nights or movie time with friends. The dim light can help you set up the right spirits!

 

4// ADD A STATEMENT PIECE 
Having a focal point in the kitchen will make it look more ‘put together’. Be it a massive chandelier over the dining table or a Moroccan pendant light on the island, a beautiful lighting fixture adds an element of interest in the room. 

 

Just follow these small tips to spruce up your kitchen. The right lighting can ameliorate every space!
