Illuminate Your Kitchen with the Best Lighting Options for LEICHT and Nolte Kitchens

Kitchen lighting is one of the most important elements in creating an inviting and functional space. Whether you're preparing meals or entertaining guests, the right lighting can make a huge difference in the ambiance and mood of your kitchen. At Kube Kitchens UK, we know that lighting plays a key role in creating a perfect kitchen space.

The key to good kitchen lighting is layering. This means using a combination of ambient, task and accent lighting to create a balanced and functional lighting scheme. Ambient lighting provides overall illumination, while task lighting is focused on specific areas, such as the work surface or sink. Accent lighting is used to highlight certain features, such as a piece of artwork or a decorative item.

Here are some of the best lighting options to consider for your Kube Kitchen:

Task Lighting

This type of lighting is designed to provide focused light on specific areas where you need it the most. Under-cabinet lighting is a great example of task lighting, and it's particularly useful for food preparation areas, such as the countertop and stovetop. We offer a range of different task lighting solutions, including LED strips and spotlights that are discreet and stylish, and provide the perfect amount of light for your needs.

Pendant Lighting

Pendant lighting is a popular choice for kitchen lighting as it can provide both ambient and task lighting. They are versatile and come in a range of styles to suit any kitchen design. For a contemporary look, consider a cluster of pendants in different sizes and shapes, while a single oversized pendant can make a statement in a more traditional kitchen.

Under-cabinet lighting

Under-cabinet lighting is a must-have for any kitchen as it provides task lighting for food preparation and cooking. LED strips or puck lights can be easily installed and will help illuminate your work surface, making it easier to see what you're doing.

Recessed lighting

Recessed lighting is a great option for ambient lighting and can be used to create a warm and inviting atmosphere. It's best to position recessed lights around the perimeter of the room, as well as in the centre to avoid casting shadows on the work surface.

Dimmer switches

Installing dimmer switches can help you adjust the lighting to suit your needs, whether you're preparing food or entertaining guests. They can also help you save on energy costs by reducing the amount of electricity used.

Natural Lighting

Don't forget to take advantage of natural lighting in your kitchen! If your kitchen has windows, make sure to choose window treatments that allow plenty of natural light to come in. You can also install skylights or light tubes to bring in more natural light, creating a brighter and more welcoming space.

Interior lighting for Pull-Outs and Drawers

In addition to overhead and task lighting, it's also essential to consider lighting for the interior of your pull-outs and drawers. Interior lighting can help you find what you need quickly and efficiently, making food preparation and cooking easier and more enjoyable.
