How to highlight kitchen design – lighting in the kitchen

Lighting in the kitchen

The kitchen, as they say, is the heart of the home. Whether it’s an evening with the family or a gathering of friends and family, it’s clear that a good chunk of the event will be spent in the kitchen. It’s a space that reflects the owner’s personal preference for interior style, so it’s understandable why the kitchen is often the first priority when redesigning the interior of a home.

As a space that serves as a place to cook and entertain, lighting in the kitchen is particularly important. It is typically divided into 3 parts: general lighting, workplace lighting and accent lighting.

General room lighting

This is lighting that is diffused throughout the space, whether it is natural daylight or artificial lighting solutions for the dark hours of the day. It is understood that this type of lighting should be as high up as possible – closer to the ceiling – to illuminate the room as evenly as possible and create a more homely feel.

Workplace lighting

Although general lighting illuminates the space more or less evenly, it often creates shadows where the main activity in the kitchen takes place – at the worktop and shelves. That’s why solutions like L.E.S.S. luminaires will provide more precise illumination where it’s needed most.

Room lighting accents

To accentuate the contours of the kitchen, you shouldn’t forget about accents and other types of luminaires. A popular “extra” if you want to give your kitchen a touch of luxury are lighting solutions integrated into drawers, for example. A solution that makes kitchen work infinitely easier and definitely worth every penny!
