Colorado Springs Kitchen Lighting

Kitchen lighting is surprisingly important! When it comes to interior design, actually designing a beautiful space is one thing—but if you don’t have the right lighting to make the most of it, you might as well not have bothered. Lighting can transform your kitchen and make it look cleaner, bigger, more cozy… Anything you like.

Why Get New Kitchen Lighting?

There are a few reasons why you might need or want to get new kitchen lighting. As we said above, the right lighting can transform your home. If you remodeled your kitchen, but didn’t install new lighting to go with it, then you really should—so that you can fully make use of your new space.

Aside from that, though, there are a couple of reasons why you might want new kitchen lighting. The first is that you want to take advantage of different lighting options, e.g. LED. Depending on the mood you want to set, LED or dimmer switches and bulbs can help you re-imagine your kitchen in brand new ways.

You might also want more lighting. Say for example that your kitchen has one big overhead light; not only does that do little to give your kitchen character, but it can also make it hard for you to see what you’re doing. Under-the-cabinet lighting will illuminate your kitchen counters, making it easier to stay safe when you’re chopping vegetables, and making your kitchen just look better.

What Kinds of Kitchen Lighting Can You Get?

Lighting your kitchen is more complicated than you think—because there are lots of different ways to do it. Let’s take a look at a big list of all the different kinds of lighting you could use!

  1. Recessed lighting. These are lights that sit in the ceiling, rather than hanging down from it. These are really common in kitchens because they provide crisp, clear lighting for every corner of the space.
  2. Track lighting. These lights are basically the same as recessed lighting lights, except they’re on a track running along the ceiling rather than recessed. Track lighting is a great idea, because it allows you to position your lights however you like.
  3. Under-the-cabinet lighting. If you can’t guess, this is lighting that runs along the underside of your kitchen cabinets. They’re great for illuminating whatever you’re trying to do, and create a cozy contrast if you have all the other lights off.
  4. Wall lights. Wall mounted lighting is great for directional lighting: above, above and below, or to the sides. Again, this helps to set the mood in the kitchen.
  5. Overhead lighting integrated with a ceiling fan. To help circulate air around the home, you could have a ceiling fan installed. The light fits in the middle.
  6. LED vs Dimmable vs Regular lighting. LED lighting is typically more ‘blue’ or harsh than regular incandescent lightbulbs. Dimmable bulbs obviously can be made dimmer or brighter as the mood requires. You can also get clappers that turn lights on and off by virtue of you clapping, or energy saving bulbs. The choice is yours!

Good kitchen lighting is typically a mixture of two or three of the above. Recessed lights can provide enough light to cover every inch of your kitchen when it’s in use, but for when you want to eat and you want to set the mood, you can switch them off and rely on under-the-cabinet lighting instead, for example. Or you could stick to one big light combined with a ceiling fan, and have a number of wall lights to provide accents. It’s up to you.

How can you decide? By working with a professional! It’s fun to make your own plans, but it’s even more fun to see those plans come to life. Talk to a pro about any ideas you’ve had, and they can tell you how to make those ideas a reality. But who should you call?

It’s also important to call a real, registered electrician because installing new lighting doesn’t just mean installing new lighting. There’s cabling involved, too, and playing with cabling if you don’t know what you’re doing is dangerous. And depending on how much lighting you want to install—and whether you want more outlets for more appliances in your kitchen—you might also need to upgrade your electrical panel at the same time. This is all in a day’s work for a genuine electrician, but is beyond the knowledge of many DIYers.
