Your kitchen is more than just a space where you cook and clean – it’s also where you entertain, have coffee with friends, and help the kids with their homework. In order for your kitchen to be functional and comfortable, it’s important for the lighting to be perfect. If the room is too dark, you could have trouble seeing while chopping vegetables or reading over your daughter’s math homework. At Masterpiece Lighting in Atlanta and Roswell, we have an amazing kitchen lighting selection, and can help you find the best fixtures for your home.
The Kitchen Counter
When you’re cooking and cleaning, you’re most likely standing at the kitchen counter. Depending on the size, layout, and positioning of your cabinets, having enough light shining on the countertop can be a challenge. By adding lighting under each cabinet and a recessed light above the kitchen sink, you’ll be able to see perfectly while chopping, mixing, or washing. We also have lighting for your kitchen island, including hanging pendants that will provide the perfect task lighting.
If your kitchen has high ceilings or quite a bit of space above the cabinets, the central fixture most likely won’t provide enough light to accent the architecture of the room. Upward-focused lights on top of the cabinets will highlight any design features of the space, as well as make the room feel larger than it actually is. For stylistic purposes, it can be a good idea to match your accent lighting to the design of the main fixture, which can be a semi-flush fixture or ceiling fan with a light kit.
