We offer you tips for taking the hub of your home to new heights with well-planned, beautiful lighting. A well-lit kitchen will make your family and friends want to pull up a chair and stay a while. Light can help enliven a space, making food look more appetizing and helping dark tables feel bright and convivial. The advent of slimline LEDs (many of which do not require hardwiring) means it is now easier than ever to retrofit difficult spaces, such as under cabinets, without a huge investment. A spacious kitchen needs layers of light – an overall light, task light and accent light – to be efficient and create a homey feel.
