It can be a depressing experience visiting a kitchen that has had blood sweat and tears (and a lot of money) spent on it only to be let down by bland, middle of the road lighting.
It’s that final 1% that can make the difference between a mediocre and an amazing space. Compromise on the lighting and you are likely to compromise the whole interior.
Most of us spend most of our time in the kitchen or kitchen/diner these days, it’s the hub of the home, and the one to really pull the stops out on.
Look for directional lighting over work areas and softer ambient fittings to provide a general wash of light.
Over islands and dining tables you can be more bold on the scale of the light fitting as you can usually hang lower.
