Lighting is essential to a beautiful and, most importantly, functional kitchen. This is an important room to keep well-lit for safety purposes and to ensure that you are able to perform food prep, cooking, and cleaning with accuracy. There is a huge range of lighting options available, but recessed light installation is an excellent choice for your kitchen for a multitude of reasons. Not only does this offer versatility in design and placement, but it is also extremely effective at lighting key workspaces in the kitchen, such as the countertops and island.
Here are three reasons why your kitchen will benefit from recessed light installation:
- Improved Task Lighting: Get significantly better illumination over your counter work areas and the sink with recessed light installation. The advantage is that you will not have shadows cast by people standing at the counters, and the direct light will make food preparation and cooking a breeze.
- Slim Dimensions: Recessed lights are incredibly versatile and ideal for small spaces or narrow areas due to their slim dimensions. If your kitchen has awkward corners or small spaces such as a butler’s pantry, recessed light installation is an excellent solution to create ambient, safe lighting.
- “Wall Washing:” This effect is created when a wall is illuminated with uniform brightness. By reflecting light from the wall, the room appears brighter and bigger. Utilizing recessed lighting in your kitchen will allow you to highlight features in the room while creating a beautiful, inviting space for family and friends to gather.
Recessed lights offer a wide range of design options while creating a bright, welcoming space in your kitchen. Update your lighting today and contact our team at The Neighborhood Electrician to get started on making your home more beautiful and functional.
