Kitchen Recessed Lighting – Layout and Planning – Ideas & Advice


Lighting is a critical element to the comfort and function level of any kitchen. A good kitchen lighting plan should include the placement of a variety of lighting sources and types.

For example, you need lighting to accomplish specific tasks, such as food preparation and cooking. You’ll also want ambient lighting that will help illuminate the entire space and make it an appealing and inviting place to work and socialize in. And you’ll want mood lighting that helps highlight kitchen cabinets, special collections, counter spaces and architectural details.

With its sleek, minimalist appearance, recessed lighting can help you accomplish all these tasks and more.

Tired of shaving in bad bathroom lighting? These snap-on mirror-lights give you perfect visibility

Here’s a problem that everyone can rally behind. Bathroom lights are the worst. They’re either placed behind you, or right above the mirror, casting light downwards on your face, making it incredibly challenging to shave your beard or apply makeup. Ideally, you want the kind of light that shines directly on your face without A. blinding you, and B. casting a shadow… like those vanity mirrors with bulbs all around them.

Lucere mimics that perfect vanity-lighting experience without racking up an electricity bill. It features a pair of portable lights that attach directly to your bathroom mirror to give you bright, bi-directional light without casting sharp shadows. The Lucere comes with a mount that adheres to your mirror, allowing you to magnetically snap the lights on or off whenever you need them. Both the lights come with touch-sensitive on-off switches and the ability to set them at your desired brightness

Importance of Lighting in Interior Design | Home Guides

The lighting in a home changes the mood of a room just as it does the perceived size of a room. Placement and type are important aspects of interior design, and they work in conjunction with color selections, room size, availability of natural light and furniture selection. The elements that come together when the right lighting is achieved transform a room into a seamless combination of functionality and style.

Color Management

The use of lighting can add to or subtract from the overall colors of a room or from only those surfaces the light is meant to enhance. Darker colors make a room feel smaller and cramped, while light-colored walls do the opposite. The illusion of space is defined by light reflected off of the surfaces of the walls. Some types of lighting help with this illusion by further illuminating the walls. In addition, directional lighting, such as a track
