Practical lighting

If you are an enthusiastic amateur chef then you’re going to need extra task lighting to aid food preparation. As I’m sure you know, it’s far too easy to make a mistake or cut a finger when working in shadow. The Set of Four Surface Mounted LED Downlights are easy to install and as well as adding practical task lighting right where you need it they also add charming accent lighting when the main lights are off. They are LED lights so produce little or no heat, just the job for the hot working environment of the kitchen.

However if you need something that can fit into a much narrower space you may want to consider LED Strip Lights. These are again perfect for under cabinet task lighting.

Adaptable Kitchen Lighting

The kitchen is probably the most versatile room in the house that serves a number of different functions such as cooking, eating, socialising, playing with the kids etc. If your kitchen is abuzz with many different activities during the day then adaptable lighting may be just what you need. The Polka Rise and Fall Pendant Fitting in Antique Brass can be adjusted to suit any situation. Leave it up high for a broad distribution of light or lower it down to create a cosy ambience in the evening, perfect for entertaining or romantic dinners.

If antique brass isn’t your thing don’t fear as it’s also available in cream and antique nickel, which makes it easy for you to find the right one for you and your home.

Gorgeous Kitchen Lighting

Let’s put function and practicalities aside for a moment and concentrate solely on the appearance of your kitchen. To find the right lighting for your dream kitchen you need to consider, what is the overall theme or style you are trying to achieve? For example the Lucide Cream Pendant has bags of classic character with an old-fashioned elegance and charm. It should work well with most retro or vintage styles of décor.
