Do You Know the Three Layers of Kitchen Lighting?
Kitchen lighting is one of the most essential areas of lighting in a home. Unlike other rooms, your kitchen has a variety of areas that require specific types of lighting. The most effective lighting for the kitchen includes three layers blended together:
- Task – Under cabinets, over kitchen islands, and pantries
- Ambient – Ceiling fixtures, pendant lighting, and track lighting
- Accent – Specific lighting for paintings, artwork, or china cabinets
If your kitchen is lit by a single central light, it probably suffers from harshness and glare while the corners of the room are dim and dull. Because so much work is performed in the kitchen every day, task lighting is essential. Ambient lighting softens lines and shadows creating a warm inviting glow in the room.
Accent lighting is the least common layer in the kitchen. But with more people entertaining in their kitchens, it is becoming more popular. Accent lighting focuses light on a specific painting, piece of art, perhaps a decorative backsplash or even a piece of china inside a cabinet with glass doors. Let Fusion Electric help make your kitchen bright and inviting by installing the right lighting.
Tips and Tricks for Lighting Gathering/Living Areas
Gathering rooms like great rooms, living rooms, and family rooms require multiple types of lighting. The main source of light is usually centered in the room. It can be a beautiful chandelier, a ceiling fan with a light. Pendant lighting, track lighting and accent lighting can draw attention to artwork or furniture. Table lamps and floor lamps typically provide reading light and wall sconces or recessed lighting can provide more light at eye level. We can help you decide which lighting is right for your home.
Bedroom Lighting Can Create Ambiance
When choosing lighting for your bedroom, remember that besides being functional, lighting can also create moods and provide stunning accents. Usually, choosing one primary source of lighting and then choosing smaller fixtures for soft additional lighting creates an ambiance you can control. Each light can be used for a specific task such as reading in bed, or together to set the mood of the room. Dimmer switches on the main source of lighting are a great option in the bedroom where waking up to harsh light can be unpleasant.
