When was the last time you updated your home’s kitchen? If it’s been a few years, you might want to consider making a kitchen remodel your next big home project. After all, you and your family spend an awful lot of time in your kitchen. So it makes sense to ensure it’s as functional as possible. Make sure to talk to your remodeling contractor about your preferred lighting options. Here are four tips to help you brighten up your space!
Use Recessed Lighting to Illuminate Dark Corners
Recessed lighting is the perfection solution for eliminating pesky shadows or dark corners where light is usually limited. You can fix the majority of your lighting problems by installing recessed lights every five feet. Not only is this kitchen upgrade functional, it will bring out the colors you’ve chosen for your space.
Add Ambiance with Over-Cabinet Lights
Want more mood lighting in your kitchen? You can add ambiance to your space by installing over-cabinet lights. While these lights won’t provide a lot of illumination for work spaces, they attract attention to over-cabinet displays. They also work well as kitchen night lights for late snackers!
Add Functionality with Under-Cabinet Lights
The primary goal of any home remodeling project should always be to make life better. Under-cabinet lights definitely fit that bill. These lights illuminate the work space under your cabinets, and eliminate the need to worry about casting shadows while you work. What’s more, they’ll do a great job of highlighting your beautiful kitchen backsplash too.
Install a Skylight for Natural Light
Want more natural light in your kitchen? Consider installing skylights to brighten up your space. Not only are skylights functional, but they also highlight the natural beauty of your countertops and cabinetry. Want more natural light in your bathrooms too? Consider incorporating skylights into a bathroom update as well!
