Lighting makes you fall in love with cooking.


In everyday life, kitchen areas are often illuminated solely by overhead lighting. However, while cooking in the kitchen, it's often observed that many subtle areas remain poorly lit. Adequate lighting in the kitchen is essential; no one enjoys cooking in a dark space. For example, while chopping vegetables, the cutting board is often shadowed by your own silhouette, posing safety hazards and impeding the efficiency of food preparation. Consequently, this situation makes it challenging to fully appreciate the satisfaction of creating a delicious meal throughout the cooking process.

With this in mind, our aim is to explore how proper lighting in the kitchen can not only create a comfortable cooking atmosphere but also enhance the aesthetic appeal of your kitchen!

From the lighting design perspective, we understand that kitchen lighting can be categorized into three main types: Ambient lighting, Task lighting, and Accent lighting.

  • Ambient lighting is indispensable in the kitchen and typically comprises ceiling lights, such as pendant lights or recessed lights. This serves as the primary source of illumination, lighting up the entire kitchen space.

  • Task lighting is directed towards specific work areas and is often installed underneath cabinets. For instance, lights can be positioned above the sink or prep area to provide localized illumination, thus preventing shadows and obstructions in these operational zones.

  • Accent lighting, to some extent, can be considered as decorative lighting. With the rise in people's living standards and aesthetic preferences, the emphasis on kitchen decoration has gradually increased. In open-plan kitchens, accent lighting not only serves as decoration but also enhances the overall aesthetic appeal of the kitchen surroundings, becoming a significant focal point in the dining or living area.
