Using a combination of ceiling lights and under-cabinet strip lighting is an excellent approach to achieve effective and well-balanced kitchen lighting. Here's a closer look at the benefits of each light source:
1.Ceiling Lights: The primary ceiling light provides overall illumination for the entire kitchen area. This type of light fixture, such as recessed lights or a pendant fixture, should be positioned strategically to evenly distribute light throughout the space, reducing shadows and providing general visibility for various tasks.
2. Under-Cabinet Strip Lighting: Installing discreet strip lighting underneath the kitchen cabinets serves as supplementary lighting that counteracts shadows created by people working at the countertops, adds an aesthetic element by creating a warm and inviting ambiance.
The combination of ceiling lights and under-cabinet strip lighting provides a layered lighting design, offering both functional and atmospheric illumination.
