Kitchen lighting

The main secret of good kitchen lighting is layering. Each functional area - where you wash dishes, cut food, eat food - should have its own light sources. Let's see: how to organize kitchen lighting, the most common lighting mistakes in the kitchen, how to choose the right fixtures and save on electricity - in this article.

The best option for the kitchen will be LED devices: linear fixtures, ceiling-mounted counterparts, LED strip. They are used to divide the room into a cooking unit and a recreation area. In fact, the kitchen lighting project consists of three components:

  • general light;
  • accents in the area of work surfaces;
  • dimmed lighting in the seating area.

General kitchen lighting

When preparing a project for a kitchen, it is necessary to take into account the norms of illumination. If earlier calculations were carried out in watts, now this does not make it possible to get an accurate idea of the required number of light sources. For example, an LED recessed ceiling light that has a 7W bulb will give as much light as a 50W halogen product.

Therefore, illuminance is measured in lux. For the kitchen, the optimal indicator is 150 lux per square meter. Also, don't forget about color temperature. Use linear fixtures, other light sources with the same indicator. The best option is natural light (4200 K).

Lighting work surfaces

General overhead lighting may not be enough for you to comfortably cut vegetables or perform other culinary tasks. For the convenience of working in the kitchen, it is recommended to use accent lighting. It is created either with the help of wall lighting fixtures, or by using an LED strip.

Please note that mobile LED devices can also be used to illuminate work surfaces. If recessed ceiling lights are stationary sources, then lamps on tripods and other devices whose position can be changed can be used for local lighting.

Recreation area lighting

For friendly gatherings, it is necessary to create an atmosphere of coziness and comfort, which is conducive to confidential communication. This can be done with subdued lighting. LED strip is best suited for such purposes.

It can be placed between the levels of the stretch ceiling, directly on the wall along the perimeter of the recreation area, attached to furniture. If desired, you can use not an ordinary LED strip, but a colored one. We have a wide range of such products, so that you can put into practice any design idea.
