Cooking in the dark is not necessarily a bright idea. Lighting the kitchen area can be tricky and difficult if you already have some light already established. That one overhead kitchen light may not be enough when you are chopping on the cutting board or mixing ingredients on the countertop underneath the cabinets. Wouldn’t it be nice to have light everywhere you need it?
Canyon Kitchen and Bath offers many lighting options from recessed ceiling lighting to chandeliers. To illuminate cooking surfaces, Steve Lenenberg, Owner of Canyon Kitchen and Bath, suggests independent lighting; such as fluorescent lights in the bottom of a microwave over the stove. This light allows the cook to shine light right on the food so he or she may cook safely.
For chopping those vegetables and mixing underneath dark kitchen cabinets, recessed ceiling lighting on the underside of cabinets will make light of the situation. Flourescent, halogen and xenon lights are most commonly used in these locations, says Lenenberg.
Also, to add a new dimension to your kitchen table, a chandelier can add a sophisticated or homey atmosphere to your dining experience. There are many different types and styles of chandeliers to fit your kitchen and provide the atmosphere you desire.
Above kitchen islands and peninsulas though, Lennenberg suggests hanging pendant lights to brighten up the area. These independent hanging lights can add a modern and elegant feel to your kitchen.
