The most essential and functional rooms in any house are the kitchen and the bathrooms. From cooking and entertaining in the kitchen, to grooming in the bathroom, choosing the right lighting drastically improves performance and function in both rooms. Not only does lighting improve your ability to carry out exacting tasks, it’s also a reflection of your personal style.
With so many lighting options available, consider these key aspects of luxury lighting design to bring harmony and luxury into your home.
Beginning with the kitchen, choose the right lighting for your island to make prep work easy while simultaneously creating a stunning focal point. Pendant lighting is a great option for illuminating an island. The large scale and unique texture of this Karam pendant from Tech Lighting combines to create a stunning design statement, and dimmable features allow you to optimize light for mood and task.
While your prep station is vital for function, your kitchen’s dining space lighting is critical in managing the mood. It may not be your formal dining space, but that doesn’t mean it should be overlooked, as eat-in kitchen nooks tend to be the space families enjoy most meals. A slender metal ring houses gently diffused LEDs to provide functional light to this ultra-chic Fiama chandelier, which comes with a dimmer to control the mood. This high-end fixture has optional candle accessories, allowing you to choose a look that’s either contemporary or classic.
While the kitchen is your most essential shared space, your bathroom is your home’s most important private room. Controlled bathroom lighting provides seamless transition from grooming to relaxing. Dimmable rectilinear lighting is the perfect complement to a top-quality designed bathroom, providing both task and ambient lighting. Consider the Metro Bath Vanity light, which may be mounted vertically or horizontally, or the space-saving Tech Reflection Mirror, which includes two imbedded sidelights with energy efficient fluorescent lamps.
