It is important to first identify the type of tasks that you will most likely do in your kitchen or any room to allow you and your designer to adequately plan the lighting renovation at the design stage, not afterwards. We generally recommend that you incorporate a layered lighting scheme – a mix of pendant lighting, flush mounts, strip lighting, track lights, and downlights (not necessarily all), in a style that will enhance and punctuate your chosen style.
This is where a particular style can be accentuated and defined. Could be a spectacular vintage chandelier to add authentic character to a classic-style kitchen. Other options include hidden lighting in recessed ceilings, wall niches, etc.
