Kitchen lighting

The kitchen is the room in the home in which good lighting is more important than in other rooms: this contributes to reducing the risk of accidents and improves visibility during food preparation. Thus, it is necessary to carefully study both artificial and natural lighting by means of suitable windows and doors.
 

Natural Kitchen Lighting

It is necessary to plan windows and doors carefully to create an environment that is well-lit and comfortable even during the day. Directing light through adequately-sized windows allows you to save on electricity as well as promoting greater psychological and physical well-being (badly-lit rooms create a gloomy and sullen atmosphere).

A - If the worktop faces a window, attention must be paid to prevent direct sunlight, or light reflected by pale-coloured surfaces facing the window, from dazzling or irritating the eyes.
A1 - It is a good idea to fit a blind on the window to deflect intense rays so that only the right quantity of light is let into the room.
B - A window behind the worktop projects the shadow of the person working at the top, reducing visibility and obliging one to switch on the artificial light even during the day.
B1 - Ideally, kitchen furniture should be installed so that the work area is illuminated by light coming in sideways to avoid too must light dazzling the eyes and unpleasantly dark areas.
