TAL explains how kitchen lighting is best approached.
Nowadays, the kitchen is the centrepiece of the house and, as such, lighting in this room is hugely important. Lighting must be practical and efficient but it should also create the right atmosphere and that’s why in the kitchen one always works with a combination of several types of lighting. In a nutshell: solid general lighting forms the basis and supports the general atmosphere. This basic lighting is complemented by accent lighting to highlight extra details or certain areas and to complete the design, you can choose some extra mood lighting.
Open kitchens are very trendy nowadays and need additional requirements to the kitchen lighting. In this type of kitchen, lighting should ensure that the kitchen blends harmoniously into the rest of the house. The purpose should be to turn the kitchen into an inviting, cosy place to be.
