Look at the areas of your kitchen plan and think about the activities that will happen in each space. Some spaces, such as food preparation zones, the kitchen sink and above the hob, will require task lighting, while others, such as the dining area, call for mood and accent lighting. If people are going to be chatting to you in the kitchen over a glass of wine while you’re cooking, you’ll want them to sit in a softer light so they can relax.
For wider mood lighting, start by looking at how much natural light comes into your kitchen, noting the number of windows and the direction in which they face. If the kitchen is multifunctional with a strong living element, it’s worth considering ambient illumination such as dimmable wall lights and eyeball lights (which can be moved around), as well as decorative systems, like shelf or feature lights.
If you’ve been promising yourself a new kitchen for years, now is a great time to take the plunge. Whether you prefer sleek modern kitchen cabinets, warm woodgrains or classic Shaker, there’s a design to suit your budget. The even better news is that the latest units are fantastically future-proof – dress them up with colour or add accessories and you can refresh your scheme as often as you like.
Breaking the planning process into manageable steps will make the process easier. Think of it as a journey, and give each step all the time and consideration it needs.
