Contemporary kitchen lighting offers the opportunity to do something really beautiful and decorative in the final design of your luxury kitchen. To plan your scheme think about the natural light and how it affects your space, consider the ceiling heights and where light falls at different times of day and zone your custom kitchen with light.
Modern kitchen lighting
LED spot lighting is the go-to choice for an overall lighting scheme and statement pendant lights over a bespoke kitchen island are a hugely popular form of task lighting. Used judiciously plinth lighting and LED lighting strips are a great way to introduce colour, drama, atmosphere and a bit of fun into your made to measure kitchen. Take a look at our gallery of lighting ideas.
Beauty + practicality = stylish kitchen lighting
Choose lighting that is both stylish and practical like LED dimmable ceiling spots and beautiful, stylish, decorative pendants over an upscale kitchen island. Pick task lighting under wall cabinets; circular LED spots that throw down pools of light, or strip lighting that provides an even wash of light.
Create a luxury kitchen lighting scheme
Use LED strips as mood lighting on plinths and cabinets to create a floating sensation. Up-light tall ceilings and have internal lighting in cabinets on motion sensors so that when you open your designer kitchen pantry the interior lights up. Check out the photos of some of our favourite lighting
What you choose is also dependent on the style of your designer kitchen – if you’ve gone for a low key design it’s a chance to bring in more interest, texture and colour, for example pendants in copper, brass and metallics. In a more contemporary kitchen, with concrete worktops for example, choose vintage or industrial looking lighting. Gather some ideas from our lighting gallery
