Lighting can be considered in two respects. Task lighting for practice use of your kitchen and mood lighting to create an atmosphere. Task lighting needs to be planned to avoid having shadows over your work areas such as the hob, food preparation area and sink. Lights suited under your wall units are best suited for task lighting along with lights situated under an extractor to provide light on your hob.

Use dimmer switches on your main lights to help create a glow in the evening – perfect for entertaining and they can be turned up when you need more useful light.
