Completing your everyday activities in the kitchen and other work areas can be difficult without the proper lighting. When your countertops and stoves are covered in shadows, your kitchen becomes accident-prone, difficult to move about and just overall, unpleasant. With these tips courtesy of our lighting design experts and inspiration from Better Homes and Garden, you can master task lighting and transform your kitchen into an area that is efficient, functional – and of course, characterized by great design.
1. Incorporate undercabinet lighting: Designed to fit in small spaces and provide accent or task lighting, these fixtures can be used under kitchen cabinets, on bookshelves, in curio cabinets, and more.
2. Use a track lighting system for a purposeful – and customizable – lighting option.
3. Add pendants above work areas such as the kitchen sink, the stove or an island. Pendants are decorative additions that are highly functional when it comes to task lighting.
