It has already been demonstrated over time that the kitchen is one of the neuralgic centers of the home: some studies show that up to 48% of the population spends between two and four hours in it. Not only do the numbers confirm it: home appliances or changes in decoration trends point out that the design of the kitchen matters more and more. Also the surfaces: shouldn’t you choose the right one to work? And once you have chosen the best, lighting plays a key role in the final perception of this room. Let LED lamps and LED ceiling lamps help you.
By carefully selecting the main components of a kitchen and making the right decisions to illuminate them, you can create an impressive interior. In many cases, countertops go unnoticed in this process, completely forgetting that they are the main element of support. You can choose among many materials and styles. Depending on them, you can choose the best lamps to achieve a greater sense of spaciousness or even three-dimensional.
Granite is a timeless classic in the kitchen. It is widely used for its strength and durability. Its life expectancy is guaranteed for many years following a series of basic maintenance tips. For example, you can not use abrasive products to clean them.
The master touch is achieved by fusing the light they emit with the metallic tones that both the lamp itself and some accessories near the worktop can have.
Choosing black or white for the countertops or for the general design of the kitchen is betting on elegance. In fact, it is possible to combine both options choosing, for example, black for countertops or islands and white for the wall and other more predominant elements. In any case, both options require adequate lighting to get the most out of it.
White, on the one hand, has always been a color closely associated with the kitchen. It provides an aspect of cleanliness and elegance, as well as achieving a very natural luminosity on its own. If you opt for LED lamps for zoned lighting, use bulbs with warm tones to combine with the 'cold' that this color usually transmits.
What if you choose a dark kitchen countertop? It is a color that has moved to the list of trends. In the case of a kitchen where black predominates, the main recommendation is to place LED lamps with prominent white light. Clear and with high luminosity to create interesting contrasts.
Wooden countertops are not easy to see. But not being the most usual option does not make them less attractive. Well taken care of (they usually need several layers of varnish) they are a perfect complement for the decoration of the kitchen, creating a totally different environment to which most people are accustomed.
By equipping the space with LED lamps and white light bulbs you will create a calm and elegant atmosphere for the kitchen. However, if the choice of a wooden countertop has been made with the intention of providing the room with a rustic touch, the recommendation will be the opposite: combine it with a slightly warmer light.
