On-trend lighting to brighten up a small kitchen

On-trend-kitchen-infographic

Is your small kitchen in need of a little illumination lift? Try these on-trend ideas to help lighten and brighten smaller spaces.

Use Under-cabinet lighting

Feature lighting to illuminate worktops is as popular as ever, with a wide range of LED strip lighting kits available. This style provides extra light and creates a feeling of space in small kitchens that can suffer from dark corners without taking up any space of its own.
Simply apply to the underside of kitchen units to create a brighter focal point. You can also create a colourful light feature by applying a strip lighting kit to kickboards to illuminate the floor.

Choose the right colour temperature

Choosing the right colour temperature is essential if you want to create a feeling of space in a small kitchen. Opt for daylight coloured bulbs to avoid dark shadows being cast by harsh lighting as this can make an already small kitchen feel even smaller.
If you want to create a soft glow in the evening, transform glass kitchen cabinets with LED spotlights.

Use Wi-Fi changeable lighting

If you haven't got the ceiling space for a large statement light feature, then Wi-Fi light fittings are a great alternative. Look for lighting which offers colour temperature changes with the touch of a button on your smartphone as a convenient, modern hi-tech alternative.
Small and easy to install, dimmable and colour changing connected light sources are an excellent way to uplift kitchen lighting and give flexibility when space is at a premium.
