Lighting Trends for the Kitchen
Since the kitchen is such a busy space it needs to be bright -- here are some ways to light it up.
Install uplights on the tops of cabinets to highlight a high ceiling.
Undercounter lighting is always a popular way to brighten countertops.
Halogen lights inside a cabinet can showcase cherished collections.
Task lighting is an important part of any kitchen design, whether it's over an island or counter. Installing a hood with built-in lights helps out when cooking at the stove.
Don't forget dimmers when planning a lighting scheme.
The bulbs are important too. Try out these new ones that come with a special plastic coating that makes them shatterproof.
