  • Lighting often gets overlooked or left until the last minute.

  • But good lighting can really make a difference.

  • There are three kitchen lighting categories:

  • Task lighting, that lights your work areas-

  • -mood lighting, that creates a warm atmosphere-

  • -and general lighting, which lights the whole room.

  • Cooking is more fun, and safer, when you can see what you're doing.

  • Worktop lighting can be integrated under the overhead cabinets.

  • You can include modules with power sockets and USB outlet.

  • A dimmer creates a soft, cosy atmosphere when your work is done.

  • If your kitchen has a dining area-

  • -it's cosy to have one or several hanging lamps over the table.

  • A dimmer gives you bright light for homework or sewing-

  • -and softer light for mealtimes.

  • You can even fit lights in your drawers.

  • MOOD LIGHTING Mood lighting makes your kitchen a nice place to be-

  • -and creates a safe, cosy feeling when everyone's gone to bed.

  • Spotlights inside a cabinet with glass doors and glass shelves-

  • -creates a soft mood. The light shows off what's inside.

  • Glass shelves mean that one light can light the whole cabinet.

  • Lights can be connected to your lighting modules-

  • -and the cables run behind the wall cabinets.

  • GENERAL LIGHTING When it comes to general lighting, start with glare free ceiling lamps.

  • A dimmer lets you see the whole room when you're cleaning-

  • -and creates a soft, inviting atmosphere.

  • Place the switch close to the door.

  • The type of lighting is also important.

  • LED lighting uses up to 85 % less energy-

  • -and lasts up to 20 times longer than old fashioned bulbs.

  • Good for your wallet and good for the planet.
