Choosing the Right Energy Efficient Kitchen Lighting Roanoke VA

Simply put, traditional incandescent bulbs are out. They’ve been completely outmatched by efficient fluorescent and xenon bulbs that distribute light more evenly. Better yet, LED lights, still fairly new on the scene, are top-rated for both light quality and efficiency. Beyond the luminosity, types of light and their placement require consideration, since there is seldom one light that can provide for the business of a cook space.

If there’s a room where illumination is most important, the kitchen takes the spotlight . And with energy efficiency on the front burner, long-lasting bulbs should be your top priority. What is there to consider when choosing the right lighting for this space?

Simply put, traditional incandescent bulbs are out. They’ve been completely outmatched by efficient fluorescent and xenon bulbs that distribute light more evenly. Better yet, LED lights, still fairly new on the scene, are top-rated for both light quality and efficiency. Beyond the luminosity, types of light and their placement require consideration, since there is seldom one light that can provide for the business of a cook space.

Small Cooking Spaces

In this compact kitchen , track lighting is a great choice. The bulbs are aimed in different directions to highlight the countertops, eating space and artwork all at once. Task lighting under the counters is especially necessary, given that there is no natural light from a window over the sink or along the walls. If one ceiling light does seem all that’s necessary, make sure it distributes light uniformly. Go for a dimmer if possible; ambiance never loses its touch.

Larger Kitchens
