3 Ways to Brighten a Kitchen

Designing a kitchen requires a lot of planning and preparation in order to ensure that the finished product is both functional, ethical and aesthetically pleasing. After all, it is very easy to overwhelm the interior décor of a property and cause the heart of the home to feel cramped, dull and lifeless. Luckily, there are many ways to brighten a kitchen without breaking the bank. Read on as the team here at PS Contracts go over everything you need to know…

Is natural lighting better than fluorescent lighting?

When it comes to interior design, it is important that natural lighting provided by windows is prioritised over fluorescent lighting that comes from light bulbs. After all, this will ensure that a kitchen feels as bright as possible and can even make the space feel larger during the daytime. With this said, artificial lighting should be installed for use during the night in order to improve the aesthetical value of a kitchen and its brightness.

Can the kitchen décor affect the brightness of a kitchen?

Many homeowners are unaware of the impact that the countertops and cabinets can have when it comes to the brightness of their kitchen. After all, dark cabinets can make a room feel much smaller than it actually is and often sucks all of the light out of a room because it has nowhere to bounce from. As a result, it is vital that dark colours are balanced with bright countertops or flooring.

What are under-cabinet lighting fixtures?

For keen cooks, it is important that the countertops are fitted with sufficient lighting in order to ensure that the workspace is safe and practical. As a result, under-cabinet lights are often fitted into place in order to spotlight the preparation area and provide enough lighting without overwhelming a room. In fact, they can even be attached to a light switch in order to create an aesthetical finish.

Here at PS Contracts, we believe that a kitchen must be welcoming which is why our team work closely with each and every client in order to turn their vision into a reality.
