Lighting is important in any room of the house, but especially in the kitchen, which is often used for more than just cooking. Whether you want to set the mood for some intimate dining, illuminate the space for some work at the kitchen table or shine a bright light on food preparation areas, flexibility is key to your lighting options.
Therefore lighting should be one of the first things you consider when planning your kitchen, because it may affect the style of kitchen units and worktops that you choose. Light is absorbed by textured, soft surfaces and reflected by harder, glossy ones. So if you want to make a room feel bigger we reccomend choosing materials that will reflect light around the room.
