Long gone are the days when you had an isolated, dark room in the house for the kitchen. Now with the open kitchen designs, your kitchen can enjoy a bit of that summer sunlight as well. If you’ve worked hard in remodeling your kitchen, you want to make sure you incorporate proper lighting to get the most out of the hours of hard work you’ve put in.
Lighting can be both natural and artificial. Whatever way you use to light up your kitchen, you need to keep the plan in mind during the remodeling or designing process.
Manipulating Natural Daylight to Enhance Your Kitchen’s Look
Large glass windows and skylights are great options to think about if you’re a fan of natural light. Letting in the sun soak up your house will not enhance the features of your kitchen but it will also create a less gloomy, positive atmosphere at your home.
You can decide how much light you want in your kitchen by adding window coverings and blinds to restrict the sunlight when it’s too hot. Similarly, you could keep the blinds up at night and let the moonlight do its magic in your kitchen as well.
If you’re still in the basic remodeling process, choosing the right color combination for your kitchen can impact on the amount of light it will absorb. Dark colors, such as in a laminated countertop, absorb light and make an overall dimmer look whereas light colored materials such as quartz can make your kitchen look brighter and spacious.
If in case, you don’t have windows or skylights in your remodeling plan, then an open kitchen adjacent to lighted rooms like the main lounge is a good strategy to go by.
Add LED lights and bulbs
Yellow colored LED lights and bulbs can seriously uplift the aesthetics of your kitchen, especially at night. Installing LED lights on the ceiling above the counters or even inside glass kitchen cabinets can produce an elegant, modern effect.
Proper lighting can go a long way for your kitchen remodeling so let the light flaunt your kitchen and make it stand out!
