Kitchen Lighting La Crosse
The kitchen is the heart of the house, where you gather as a family to make delicious meals and where the kids sit down to do their homework each night. It’s where you catch up with old friends over a cup of coffee and enjoy breakfast on Saturday mornings. It’s important for your kitchen lighting to be just right, and at Wettstein’s in La Crosse, we would love to help you update your fixtures, or come up with the perfect design for your new home.
Most of the time when you’re in your kitchen, you’re working on some task, whether it’s cooking, cleaning, or preparing. It’s important to have the right task lighting for each area, such as under cabinet lighting for the counters and recessed lighting above the sink. You need to be able to see what you’re doing, no matter where you’re standing!
Many modern homes have kitchen islands, and a popular form of accent lighting for these spaces are pendants. These fixtures can provide a decorative touch, while also illuminating the countertop for preparing and serving meals, or providing light when the kids are working on their math assignments. You can choose from a single fixture with multiple lights, or independent fixtures hung in multiples. The choice is up to you!
It’s important not to forget about the ambient, or general, lighting in your kitchen. You might choose a flush or semi-flush fixture, based on the height of your ceiling. However, you may want to think about recessed lighting along the perimeter of the room to provide more general light and make the space brighter and more inviting.
The expert team at Wettstein’s would love to work with you on finding the perfect kitchen lighting options. You might have a small space with a few counters, or you may have a large kitchen with an island, breakfast nook, and more, but whatever the case may be, we can help you design the ideal lighting for your kitchen.
