A characterful kitchen deserves to be beautifully lit, and this is how you do it.
'All too often with a kitchen, the lighting is an afterthought but it should be considered and research carried out at the initial planning stage. Don’t wait until after cabinetry and appliances are place as the position of the lights may affect where sockets and cables are placed and it’s much harder to alter these things further down the line,' suggests Marketa Rypacek, managing director, Industville.
One of the most common mistakes with lighting above a table or island is that people go too small. If you don't want a large shade that dominates the space, I advise customers to consider using a cluster of several smaller lights,' says Industville's Marketa Rypacek. 'Either arrange in a traditional line or various heights, as this will create an impressive and interesting display.'
