The Power of Lighting
Lighting can completely transform your space beyond the practical benefit it brings. It creates ambience, a brighter, more spacious and multi-dimensional feel and highlights design features. Considering a lighting scheme at the initial design stages will influence the overall atmosphere of the interior space.
As the name suggests, task lighting is perfectly positioned to ensure the kitchen is an efficient working space for everyday tasks such as cooking. Typically, kitchen task lighting is positioned under wall units to
illuminate the worktop, focusing light exactly where it is needed.
Convenience lighting illuminates cupboards, wardrobes and drawers when opened for ultimate ease of use, while adding a luxurious finish to the kitchen or bedroom design.
Mood lighting creates depth and dimension, which is essential for creating atmosphere within a room. Consider lighting along the plinth, up-lighting above wall units, lighting beneath breakfast bars or the underside of a worktop and lighting the inside of glass fronted cabinets.
