ighting to a house is what breathing is to a body. It fills 'life' into a void. Therefore, it is often a matter of vital importance to create the best lighting concepts for our homes. Gone are the days when we merely follow our instincts when it comes to home lighting and decorations. Today, every object in our homes has a methodical thought and relevant presence behind it. To emphasize all such objects or pieces of art, the right kind of lighting solutions have to be installed. Lighting has a unique functionality depending on the kind of object or space that it has to reflect. Some spaces need to be enhanced brightly, while others need to be subtly reflected. Some objects need to be emphasized while others require a design element. Thus every space, corner and room in our house requires a different treatment of reflection. Light adds dimension and texture to a room, making a room look larger or smaller, softer or more dramatic, cozy or formal. Therefore, merely selecting the kind of lighting solution for your room or objects is not enough. You need to ensure that the technique in which the light is situated, used and reflected optimizes its functionality. The importance of kitchen lighting is so often overlooked. With the kitchen being one of the most frequented rooms in all homes, good kitchen lighting is important to its overall design and feeling. The modern kitchen is often much more than just a work area, it is primarily a place of comfort and needs to be very functional. It can be a quiet area where you can relax by yourself, a space where two people casually talk and get to know one another, or it can be an entrance that is used to support activities in an adjacent space. Indirect lighting and direct lighting in conjunction can maximize the mood in your kitchen. The most dramatic look you can achieve in a kitchen is to mix indirect lighting with direct lighting. Indirect lighting is created by hiding the light source from view. The light produced by the hidden fixture bounces[ reflected] off a ceiling or a wall and produces a warm glow that adds enormous amounts of atmosphere if done just right. The light fixtures can be hidden on top or under wall cabinets or they can be installed in open troughs or layered ceiling areas that surround the entire kitchen space. Direct lighting is achieved by using conventional recessed lights, surface lights or light fixtures that are on a pendant or chain. The kitchen being primarily a busy work area, lighting there needs to be comfortable and functional. Lighting in the drawers, cabinets, plinth area or countertop should add to both task and accent. Perfect lighting over dinner tables should provide you with adequate lighting for home- work, hobbies, business, dining or entertaining. When the sink is equipped with the adequate lighting, it helps you in see that the dishes are washed and the pots and pans are clean with little effort. Under cabinet lighting is ideal for countertops.
