You spend a lot of time in your kitchen, cooking, cleaning, and entertaining, which is why it’s important to have the proper lighting. If you’ve noticed that the area around your sink is too dim, or there isn’t enough light on your countertops when you’re chopping ingredients and preparing meals, then Southern Lights is here to help. We have a fantastic selection of kitchen lighting, and we’d love to show you how you can update your home!
Layers of Light
In order for a kitchen to look and feel fully functional, it needs to have layers of lighting. The three layers are ambient, accent, and task lighting, and you can achieve all three with the proper ceiling lights, island lights, and under cabinet lighting. Each level of your kitchen will be illuminated, creating a bright, inviting space.
Kitchen Ceiling Lights
For ceiling lighting, you can choose from a variety of options, including flush-mount lights, recessed lighting and more. It can be best to have one or two central ceiling fixtures, and then add recessed lights around the perimeter of the room. If you have a tall or vaulted kitchen ceiling, you can look at pendant lights or a small chandelier for your ambient light source.
Kitchen Island Lighting
If you have a kitchen island (or you’re planning to add one), then you’ll need pendant lights for this space. These fixtures can act as both accent and task fixtures, illuminating the middle layer of the room and provide plenty of light when you’re sitting at the island or using it as a prep space. There are a number of different pendant options to choose from, and our team will be more than happy to help you pick out the best lights.
Under Cabinet Lighting
For kitchen task lighting, there’s often no better choice than under cabinet fixtures. These bright, discreet lights can be installed under your kitchen cabinets, illuminating your countertops and creating another layer of lighting within the room. You’ll use them every time you chop, prep, and clean, and you can also leave them on after dark for nighttime lighting.
The kitchen is often called the “heart of the home,” and if you’re looking for new lighting options, let Southern Lights help you discover the latest trends and styles. We offer a vast inventory of pendant lights, ceiling fixtures, and much more, you can visit our showroom or browse our online catalog at your convenience. We look forward to working with you!
