How to plan your IKEA kitchen lighting — video


LIGHTING Lighting often gets overlooked
or left until the last minute. But good lighting
can really make a difference. There are three
kitchen lighting categories: Task lighting,
that lights your work areas- -mood lighting,
that creates a warm atmosphere- -and general lighting,
which lights the whole room. Cooking is more fun, and safer,
when you can see what you’re doing. Worktop lighting can be integrated
under the overhead cabinets. You can include modules
with power sockets and USB outlet. A dimmer creates a soft, cosy
atmosphere when your work is done. If your kitchen has a dining area- -it’s cosy to have one or several
hanging lamps over the table. A dimmer gives you bright light
for homework or sewing- -and softer light for mealtimes. You can even fit lights
in your drawers. MOOD LIGHTING
Mood lighting makes your kitchen
a nice place to be- -and creates a safe, cosy feeling
when everyone’s gone to bed. Spotlights inside a cabinet
with glass doors and glass shelves- -creates a soft mood.
The light shows off what’s inside. Glass shelves mean that one light
can light the whole cabinet. Lights can be connected
to your lighting modules- -and the cables run
behind the wall cabinets. GENERAL LIGHTING
When it comes to general lighting,
start with glare free ceiling lamps. A dimmer lets you see
the whole room when you’re cleaning- -and creates a soft,
inviting atmosphere. Place the switch close to the door. The type of lighting
is also important. LED lighting uses
up to 85 % less energy- -and lasts up to 20 times longer
than old fashioned bulbs. Good for your wallet
and good for the planet.
