The decision on the issue of the organization of kitchen lighting should be carried out at the stage of thinking of repairing and decorating the kitchen. In order to carry out a laying of current cables, which will then be hidden by finishing, it is necessary to accurately imagine where will be located lamps, sockets, switches and other light engineering equipment. Otherwise, after finishing work, to add the lamps without causing tangible damage to repair will be very and very problematic, and most importantly – much more expensive.
In general, the total cost of a complex of work connected with lighting you must consider about 10-15% of the total budget for kitchen repairs.
Correct lighting of the kitchen, even a small area, is a multilevel lighting. One hanging lamp located in the center of the ceiling does not solve the problem of lighting. More precisely, it does not solve it completely, creating additional difficulties at the same time – when cooking, you will stand to the source of light with your back, and, therefore, the working area will be in the shadows.
I added some examples of modern lighting for the kitchen, may you will find some ideas for your own kitchen.
