Light Up Your Home, this Festival of Lights

1

Diwali is all about lighting. If you are planning a home makeover this season, then lighting should be something you should upgrade. Here are some tips you could use to light up each room:

 

Kitchen

Kitchen lighting should not only be practical, and functional, it should also be jazzy especially if you have an open kitchen.

  • You must go for fixtures that are easy to clean as Indian cooking leads to a lot of greasy deposits around the kitchen.
  • With Indian cooking, you may want to ensure recessed lighting is used a little farther from the stove, as cleaning recessed fixtures is a task.
  • Under-cabinet lighting provides direct illumination of kitchen work surfaces, and are out of sight!
  • You could also use Pendant fixtures over areas you use a lot.

  • Recessed lights work best in this room
