Using Task Lighting In Your Kitchen Design
As you’re designing your new kitchen or kitchen remodel, it’s important to think about the different types of lighting you will need in your kitchen. The proper lighting in your kitchen can really increase the room’s functionality.
Essential to your kitchen design is task lighting. As you spend a lot of your time in the kitchen prepping meals and entertaining, task lighting is very beneficial. Task lighting can be incorporated into your kitchen design by using pendant lights. Typically, pendant lights are hung above countertops and kitchen islands. It is recommended that you hang pendant lights 30 to 40 inches above the island or countertops. At this height, the lights are providing sufficient amounts of light to the designated area while not distracting the kitchen views. Pendant lights are available in a variety of shapes and sizes.
