When considering how to choose the best kitchen lighting, the overall aesthetics should play a large part in it. LED downlights provide a stylish but unobtrusive way to provide maximum light efficiency. There are many options available from our website and we're always happy to make recommendations to meet your project specifications. You might have existing hole sizes or a shallow ceiling void for example.

 

Kitchen lights can generally be divided into three types: main lights, auxiliary lights and cabinet lights.

Main light: the main light is one of the most commonly used lamps in the kitchen space, if the home is an integrated ceiling or aluminum ceiling, you can choose a recessed flat panel light, so that the space looks more integral, beautiful.    If the ceiling is gypsum board or latex paint, you can choose recessed downlights or ceiling lights with a cover.  The number of the lights is based on the size of the kitchen area to determine.

 

Auxiliary lights: Auxiliary lights in the kitchen are generally used for functional lighting in the kitchen operation area, both practical and hierarchical. For example, the washing area: in order to wash the vegetables more clean, eat more at ease, so it is necessary to install lights in the washing area.

 

Cabinet lights: in general, the bottom of the cabinet is the operating table, or wash basin, then you can install lights at the bottom of the hanging cabinet, because the cabinet itself will block the light, so the installation of lights at the bottom of these cabinets can solve the problem of low light.

 

 

Different space lighting options

Open kitchen

Open kitchen is best to use main lighting for overall kitchen lighting, then install downlight or ceiling light above the sink to serve as side lighting. In order to eliminate the shadow around, it is appropriate to install more than 2 downlights.

 

 

Semi-open kitchen

Semi-open kitchens with pendant kitchen should use main lighting to serve as overall lighting, with special type lamps installed under the pendant kitchen using double-sided open cabinets or special type lamps installed under wall-mounted cabinets as auxiliary lighting.

 

 

Freestanding kitchen

Freestanding kitchen space is small, can use the main lighting as the overall lighting, but also need to use the kitchen special kitchen lights to achieve the effect of centralized lighting, convenient cooking dishes, to avoid unnecessary damage.

 

Kitchen lighting selection requirements

- Luminance

How should the brightness of the lighting in the kitchen be selected? Depends on our personal habits and lighting needs when cooking, consider whether it is convenient for us to do the cooking operation.

The cooking process is very complicated, many ingredients, utensils to be taken out of the locker, so the kitchen lights should try to choose a brighter, to avoid unnecessary danger because of insufficient light, but also, can play a better role in eye protection.

Therefore, the design should be a combination of general lighting and local lighting, with a larger power ceiling lamp to ensure the overall brightness, and then in accordance with the layout of the kitchen furniture and stove arrangement, choose local lighting with wall lamps and take care of the work surface lighting, adjustable height pendant lamps, etc., in order to make the kitchen operations involved in the work surface, meal preparation table, washing table, corners, etc. have enough light.

 

- Color temperature

In general kitchens, it is appropriate to use cold color temperature. Warm color temperature visually gives a very warm feeling. But the kitchen is a hot place, if it is hot summer is even hotter; and cool color temperature is brighter, so the kitchen lighting choose cool light, not only a sense of coolness and lighting is brighter and cleare.

 

- Dampproof

Because the kitchen will often have water vapor, more susceptible to moisture. So in the selection of lamps and lanterns, to have a moisture-proof function. This will not be too much water vapor into the danger of an explosion. In addition, in the usual course of use, you can also wipe the lamp with a dry cloth to keep it clean and dry, extending the service life of the lamp.

 

 

- Oil-proof

The kitchen should not only be moisture-proof, but also needs to be oil-proof. In the choice of lamps and lanterns, they should be oil-proof and do a good job of regular cleaning to keep it illuminated. It is also best to do regular cleaning work on the lamp to keep its illumination.
