When working on kitchen tasks, you have to pick the right lighting. No matter what you're doing, direct kitchen lighting is what you will need. Another kitchen lighting idea that you need to think about is one that can set the mood in the kitchen. Maybe you only want to hang around the kitchen area for a late night snack while talking to someone. In this case, you want lighting that is soft and calming.
The typical modern kitchen lighting layout works perfectly well in terms of lighting design, but it has a couple of major drawbacks, mainly because in order to get the kind of crisp light needed in a kitchen the default option has become halogen lamps. These are hugely inefficient and operate at extremely high temperatures. Well over 90% of the electricity you pay good money for to light your kitchen is wasted as heat which itself presents a fire risk to any material located in close proximity.
The hallmark of almost all good kitchen lighting designs is the use of numerous light sources rather than relying on say just a couple of bright fluorescent strip lights. The reason is simple; kitchens are fundamentally work areas and require task lighting which typically needs to be placed between you and the items you are working with. If the main lighting in the room is located in the middle of the ceiling then you invariably find yourself working in your own shadow.
