8. Set up a series of wall lightsWith more of us choosing to design our kitchens without wall cabinets, the classic underbench lighting isn’t always an option. Here, the designers have worked around the problem with angled lights fixed to the wall above the benchtop. The beauty of these is that they can be positioned to illuminate the exact area that’s needed, and each one has its own switch for even more flexibility.
Brighten it upNo one wants to spend time in a dark and dingy room, so make your kitchen feel as light and bright as possible — you want people to feel uplifted as soon as they enter. Painting the space white or in pale shade is one way to do this, but think about your window treatments too. Here, shutters cover only the lower part of the windows, allowing natural light to flood in at the top. Also consider whether you can open the space by removing walls, and include a mirror or two, as these can be useful in reflecting light around a room.
