Tips for selecting new lighting fixtures for your kitchen
If you've ever given your kitchen a makeover, you know what a big project it can seem like. Should you repaint the walls? Should you have new floors installed? Should you hire a contractor? The choices that you must make seem overwhelming, but there are some tricks you can follow that will help make the redecorating process a bit less confusing. Before redoing any floors or installing any new appliances in the kitchen, it is wise to install new lighting fixtures. Randall Whitehead, a lighting expert from San Francisco and the author of "Residential Lighting: A Practial Guide," told HGTV that the most effective lighting for this room is composed of four layers mixed together: task, ambient, accent and decorative lighting.
And if you are looking for lighting pieces that make a statement through the use of these layers, look no further than those sold by Interior-Deluxe.
