CWC Electric, LLC installed a new ceiling fan, LED undercabinet lighting, pendant lights, recessed lighting and a dinette light during the project. Notice the pendant medallions which add an elegant design feature.
There are no hard and fast rules when installing kitchen lighting. Most experienced electricians simply take into account the brightness or darkness of the decor in the room, the type and wattage of light being used and the purpose of the lighting (general, task or accent). It is important to not place recessed lighting either too close or too far apart and the "can" should be an appropriate distance from the wall.
A well designed lighting layout will have the effect of making a room feel larger and brighter. Poor lighting design can make a room feel smaller because it creates the visual effect of lowering the ceiling.
A dimmer can be added to any light to either increase brightness when completing detail oriented tasks such as cooking, then dimmed to eat that romantic dinner!
