It is always important for us to ensure enough of lightning arrangement in kitchen. It makes your kitchen a better and safer place to work in. When it comes to old kitchen model, arrangement is made in such a way that light comes from only a single fixture. Most of the time, it is installed over the stove. At daytime, it is quite okay but at night, it isn’t much of help for food preparation. There are a lot of options to redecorate your kitchen just with a magic touch of more lights. However, before you make a choice to go with, never forget to speak with a kitchen electrician.
Track lighting is a very good choice to rev up your kitchen corner. Moreover, you can use it for task lighting too and that does not require you to make even a single change in electrical wiring. However, before you go for track lighting, here are a few things to take a look at.
You can choose from three standard types of track lighting - Halo, Juno and Ligh tolier. They are usually labelled as H, J or L for easy identification. They use different types of track and have particular light fixtures to fit the track type. Remember to use a fixture that perfectly matches with the particular system you have chosen from the available options. It often makes good sense to buy a fixture first and then work back to choose a track system that is compatible with the fixture.
Design a Layout
Decide where you want the lights to be installed. It is better to have them right over food prep place, sink, stove and refrigerator. Modular kitchens have an eat-in zone. If you own such type, make sure to arrange enough of light to brighten up the area. Just specify your choice to your kitchen electrician and he will take care of everything needed to light up your kitchen.
Choice of Bulbs
Right choice of bulb is very important to fit the fixtures you have already bought. LED bulbs are good and produce enough of light. Another good and alternative option is CFL flood lamps. Though they are not as popular as halogen or incandescent light but will emit enough to brighten up your kitchen. Instead of using a spotlight, you may also install several lights in closer proximity to get the same or much better effect.
If you know how to install track and do related works, go with it, otherwise, wearing a do-it-yourself approach never makes much of sense. Call in a kitchen electrician who lives in your locality or from a distance and let him take care of the details.
