There are a lot of different light bulbs on the market and the ones that you choose for your kitchen can make all the difference in the world! You’ll want to have the best lighting for the kitchen area so that you can see what you’re doing and prepare your meals properly. There is also a safety concern since you will be doing a lot of chopping and must be able to see the knife and the food clearly.

Every kitchen needs great lighting and if you are lucky enough to have a big window in the kitchen, this can be quite helpful especially during the day. In the evening, however, when it’s time to get dinner prepared, you’ll need to rely on good lighting in the kitchen in the form of LED fixtures and bulbs.

Look for cooler bulbs since they offer clear light, which is what you want for the kitchen. Warmer bulbs are more cozy and great for a dining room or a bedroom. Look for a day lightbulb (5000 K) that has a white light that’s almost bluish in colour. These bulbs should be used in areas where you will be prepping food or reading through a recipe book. They are the perfect type of accent lighting for a kitchen to light up strategic areas.

Look for cool white bulbs (4100 K) for the overall lighting up the room. These LEDs offer a crisp look but with a slightly warmer glow.

There are many different lighting options for kitchens especially when you start to consider the different effects that can be achieved with a dimmer switch. You can have bright lighting for preparing your food and then turn it down to create a warmer ambience while you’re eating.
