The kitchen lighting design layout is not easy to decide. The lighting in the kitchen should present the decorative and functional purpose. Actually there are four types of kitchen lighting. You need to design it well to make sure that each job in the kitchen can be done perfectly. If you check the pictures of the kitchen interior design, you will always find task lighting located above the cooking area or over the sink. In the middle of the ceiling, you can find an overhead lighting which serves as the general lighting in the cooking room. Sometimes, the lighting is needed under the cabinet or over the cabinet to provide enough illumination.
To make sure that you can focus on the beauty of the architectural design, wall mounted lighting or wall sconces are needed. Therefore, you have to decide the appropriate lighting which can serve both function and aesthetics. The first thing to do to decide the kitchen lighting design layout is dividing the type of lights that you need. There are four categories of light to present in the cooking room like decorative, general, task and display lighting. Then you have to decide the area where you will hang or install the light. If you need lighting for the stove or sink, a direct lighting is great. The long and lateral lighting is perfectly matched to hang over the countertop. If you want to do food preparation and cooking process, you will need brighter lighting.
To illuminate all areas in the kitchen, an overhead lighting is desirable. The sink is ideal to illuminate with task lighting. You can install the track lighting or recessed lighting to present the task lighting. Choose the high technology recessed lighting which enables you to control the intensity of light. You can make it dim or even bright depending on the need. If you like to present decorative style in kitchen lighting design layout, hang several pieces of pendant lighting on the kitchen island and wall sconces either side of the wall. If you want to present general lighting in the kitchen, you just have to install a decorative chandelier or a simple fluorescent lighting in the middle of the ceiling. Hang it over the kitchen table.
