The kitchen is the busiest room of a residence. From morning to night, this room is always crowded with family members who want to cook and enjoy the food. Seeing the importance of space, lighting is one of the factors that must be considered well. Good lighting in the kitchen can help you do tasks in the kitchen. What’s more, can add character to space while providing a comfortable mood.
Lamps and lighting, especially in the kitchen room, is one of the most important interior design elements that cannot be numbered two. However, there are still many who plan to light in the kitchen room only to be done as needed. Believe it or not, lighting in space can have a direct effect on the function of the room, especially affecting the feelings and mood of its occupants while spending time there.
The first priority of lighting in the kitchen is to be able to provide sufficient lighting for kitchen work. However, installing lighting is not an easy matter. Someone is often confused with the right choice of lights to prepare, cook and eat with the family.
This can be achieved by installing task lighting from LED strip lights placed under and above the cabinet. This lighting does not dazzle or make the room feel warm but is able to create a more optimal room light. However, make sure not to create shadows on the food preparation table so that the kitchen work can run optimally. Another advantage is that if the main accent of your kitchen is the backsplash, then attaching the LED spotlight right between the top of the backsplash and under the cabinet is the right thing.
It is very popular if lighting is currently included in the elements of the display cabinet because the presence of cabinet lighting is able to increase the attractiveness of the objects of the collection or display inside. However, this additional lighting is not only placed in the interior of the cabinet but, there are sometimes when lighting is placed outside, with the main function still the same, namely to highlight the attractiveness of the collection objects in the cabinet.
For lighting on display cabinets, usually, the types of spotlights are more popular because these types of lights have a more focused light intensity in one area, and not spread in various directions. Not only display cabinet, but kitchen cabinet (kitchen cabinet) is also a common cabinet equipped with additional lighting. Only, specifically in the kitchen cabinet, ordinary lighting is placed outside, which is just below it. The type of lamp that is commonly used to complement this cabinet is strip LED lights, which is also a backlight in the kitchen. However, not all types of lighting can be combined with your cabinet. Only certain types of lights are suitable.

Sconces are a type of lighting that can create a sharp and bright impression around the cabinet.

Place each one of the lights in the left and right corners of the cabinet that can reinforce the items on display.
Compared to other types of lamps, sconces tend to have soft, shaded lights. The installation process is also quite simple. In addition, these lights have other advantages, which are made in various unique shapes and designs that can be adapted to the interior of the house.
