Kitchen renovations usually include the addition of more light. That’s because older, outdated kitchens tend to be darker and more cramped. That’s just how kitchens were built in the old days.
But when you are rebuilding your kitchen, it’s time to correct the mistakes of the past and include more light, both natural and artificial. After all, you are going to want people to see your new kitchen in all its glory!
Let There Be Light
Improving the lighting makes kitchens look bigger, better, and more functional. When you are starting with a clean slate, you can make many choices to improve the lighting in your kitchen. For example, you can tear down walls or cut new pass-through windows that perhaps include a breakfast bar or island.
You can add skylights. You can expand the size and number of exterior windows. You can install additional or brighter overhead lighting. You can even include under-counter lighting on your new cabinets. And you can choose new appliances that include additional lighting or even video screens that add to the illumination of your new kitchen.
At Mr. Kitchen, we have plenty of great ideas for adding more light to your kitchen, including both natural and electrical light. We collaborate with you to discover ways to add brightness and warmth to your kitchen, making it the shining center of your home.
In older kitchens, lighting was usually an afterthought — if it was considered at all. But today’s modern kitchens are often built with the lighting in mind, creating sunnier, happier, and more spacious areas for sharing quality time with your family.
