Types of Lighting with Kitchen in mind

Planning an efficient layout, and following recommended design guidelines, can help ensure that you end up with a stylish room that’s safe, functional, and comfortable.

Ambient – Ambient light from pendants, such as those hanging over the island in this photo, recessed lighting or other sources can eliminate dark spots in a room and serves as a design element.

Task – Task lighting under cabinets, as shown in this photo, fills the shadows and provides a high level of light.

Accent – Accent lighting makes glass-fronted cabinets come alive when lit from the inside, as shown here, highlighting the decoration inside.
