Since you are tired of being unable to see well while cooking in your kitchen, you may be thinking about installing new light fixtures. However, since the space in the kitchen is small, you are having problems deciding on what types of lighting fixtures you should choose that will not interfere with moving around and working.
If this is the case, one option is to forget about fixtures that hang down and hit you in the head while trying to prepare a meal, and instead, choose recessed lighting. There are a couple of advantages to having an electrician install recessed lighting in your small kitchen.
1. Does Not Take Away from the Visual Space in the Kitchen
One advantage that you will find when you have recessed lighting installed is that it does not take away from the visual space of your small kitchen. When you have light fixtures that hang down, they break the visual field of the space.
When the space's visual field is broken, it creates an illusion that your already small kitchen has even less space, giving it a cluttered, cramped feeling. However, since recessed lighting is installed in the ceiling and does not interfere with the visual field, it can help make the kitchen feel open and larger.
2. Provides Focused Lighting Without Having Fixtures Protruding from the Ceiling
Another benefit of lighting that is recessed and built into the ceiling is that it can provide focused light to any place you need it. With standard light fixtures, you are confined to the positioning of the light, which often causes shadows where you need to be able to see while preparing and cooking food.
However, with recessed light, the electrician can direct each bulb to any area where you need extra illumination. Along with the lighting in the ceiling, you can even discuss the possibility of having lighting installed directly under your cabinets so that the workspace is fully lit up without having to worry about dark spots and shadows.
When you have a small kitchen, conventional lighting fixtures can take away from the visual space while still not illuminating areas where you need extra light. With recessed lighting, it opens up the space and gives you focused lighting to allow you to see where you need it the most.
