The kitchen is the heart of the home. We spend much time there while cooking and socialising. In terms of power and atmosphere, a pleasantly lit kitchen has many kinds of light: good general lighting, powerful yet glare-free working light and peaceful dimmer light for socialising and dining.
Suspended luminaires equipped with a separate switch create more space in the kitchen for dining. A luminaire installed too high can dazzle diners and, when installed too low, is a visual obstruction across the table. Taking atmospheric lighting into account and the colour temperature of the light are important, if the dining area is open to other rooms in the home.
The ideal height for a dining table luminaire is 60 to 80 cm from the surface of the table.
Light strips beautifully highlight the contents of glass cabinets.
