Bright Ideas in Island Lighting / by Hitman Inc

Bright ideas that make a big difference.

The first thing people usually cut from their budget is lighting. Unfortunately, this can be the difference between having an ok kitchen, and having a “WOW” Kitchen. Lighting adds character to a kitchen. Designed properly, lighting can set the mood for an entire home. The vast majority of people spend most of their budget on Cabinets, Countertops, Labor, and Appliances. While of these are important in making your kitchen comfortable—lighting makes the difference.

There are several unique ways to use lighting in a kitchen. Recessed lights are very popular right now, and the white simple 4” LEDs are my favorite. They can be dimmed to set different atmosphere’s. Pendant lights are great over an island or a peninsula. There are thousands of different styles to choose from, to fit anyone’s style and taste. If you're on a budget, consider track lighting that doesn't require re-wire the ceiling, in order to keep the budget down. Then there’s under-cabinet lights—these are my favorite way to take a kitchen to the next level! The way to really make your kitchen pop is with a high quality backsplash that creates a rich focal point, and under-cabinet lights to set off the details.
