Kitchen Lighting To Suit Your Lifestyle

The kitchen is one of the most multi-functional rooms in any household. This means it needs to fulfil the best lighting results that are suitable for many purposes. No matter if it's cooking, working, crafting, dining or any entertaining guests, you need a well-lit and comfortable kitchen. 

You'll want to be sure your kitchen lighting choices are perfect for its versatile life. Whether it's recessed downlights or some subtle under counter or under cabinet strip lighting to give the room a soft, warm glow or more clinical cool white appearance, Downlights Direct has the solution for your unique requirements.

When choosing your main lighting for a kitchen, it's recommended that the end result illuminates the room as close to daylight conditions as possible. The reason for this is so you can really see how well your food is cooking, which wouldn't be as effective if you just used under counter strip light to cook by, for example. The use of high colour rendering (CRI) LEDs helps to reproduce colours more effectively. Many of our LED strip tapes now offer high CRI as standard, you don't always have to pay premium prices to get premium quality lighting solutions.

Kitchen Spotlights - Can be used as a supplementary light or even as the main lighting and are a great long-lasting, energy-saving option. Often used to light-up cooking areas or as a direct light source for the dining table.

LED Batten Fittings - Some carefully placed LED batten light fittings can make a considerable difference and add brightness to your room. Although a bit unsightly, they do the job and provide a consistent, homogeneous lighting effect. Modern LED batten fittings are less unsightly than the old fluorescent tube design.

Selecting The Right Lighting For Your Kitchen Space

It isn't just about scattering downlights or spotlights across the ceiling; using a combination of subtle lighting layers can enhance the features of the room, hide flaws and even make a small appliance seem larger or highlight key features, so you need to find the right lights for your kitchen. 

One consideration is that any exposed light fittings could collect oily grime from the daily cooking tasks performed in the kitchen. A more popular option is a fitting that is recessed or semi-recessed where possible.

Once you've selected a good general or main kitchen lighting option, the next step is to decide if any other areas could benefit from some additional lighting.

Integrated LED downlights

When it comes to integrated kitchen downlights, you could install some smaller LED light fittings under the counters, or even beneath the cupboards to illuminate the food preparation and cooking spaces. For some additional illumination, overhead cornice lighting or plinth kitchen light will also compliment the layered lighting effect.

What is the best type of kitchen light?

When it comes to the best kitchen lights, it depends on the kitchen aesthetics as well as your priorities.

For kitchen lights that are primarily for illuminating specific areas of the room then kitchen spotlights would be the best solution. However, if you're looking to add some subtle lighting to your kitchen to enhance the aesthetics of the space, then under cabinet lighting or kitchen plinth lights would be a great option.

Can you replace existing downlights?

Yes. It is possible to replace your existing downlights. The way in which your current downlights have been installed will determine the existing hole sizes and difficulty of replacing them with new downlights.

When replacing existing downlights, there are a number of tools to help you install your new downlights.

Are LED bulbs good for the kitchen?

100%. LED bulbs are fantastic in the kitchen as they provide an energy efficient lighting solution. To find the perfect LED light bulb for your kitchen, take a look at our LED bulbs collection.
