As the kitchen is both a social environment and a workspace, you want a mixture of ambient and task lighting. Ambient lights will set the mood with a soft glow, while task lights will focus stronger light over key work spaces such as an island or countertop. The key is balancing the two sources so the kitchen is as warm and inviting as it is functional.
LED lights use up to 80% less energy than standard incandescent light bulbs (Electricity in New Zealand, Electricity Authority, 2016) and will last for thousands of hours. This makes LED lights ideal for hard to reach places, where replacing them can be difficult and/or dangerous. Additionally,
LED lights do not suddenly fail, but will slowly lose their brightness over time, and frequent on/off switching does not impact on the lifespan of LED
lights, so they are ideal for use in your busy kitchen.
LED lights generate very little heat so can be recessed into furniture and cabinets or be used to light artwork without damage. They are also safer than traditional lights as they will stay cool to touch even after several hours of usage.
LED lights have a robust design, making them far sturdier and more durable than traditional light bulbs. Since LEDs don’t use fragile components such as glass and filaments, LEDs are able to withstand shock, vibration and extreme temperature.
