How Lighting Affects Your Kitchen Decor
Kitchens are a place for gathering. A place memories are made, good meals are crafted, and families find refuge after a long day of work. With the amount of joy a kitchen can bring, it is the perfect place to focus on updating a home’s design.
Kingston Brass has long existed to provide quality kitchen fixtures. With a wide selection of traditional, contemporary, and modern style products, Kingston is an industry leader in kitchen plumbing.
For homeowners considering upgrading their kitchen’s style, it is important to consider how lighting will affect the kitchen’s decor and fixtures. The following outlines everything to consider when focusing on kitchen style.
Lighting Touches Faucets and Fixtures
It is easy to shop for faucets and fixtures without considering how a kitchen’s lighting will affect the piece. When shopping for a faucet or fixture, it is important to first walk through the space. Will sunlight touch the piece? Will artificial lighting highlight the finish?
For example, the Kingston Brass Concord Wall Mount Pot Filler Kitchen Faucet in brushed nickel will offer warm notes to a room when natural light hits its textured tone. The unique etched finish creates a stunning interaction of light and darkness. This pairs well with design schemes that are warm and soft.
Conversely, the Kingston Brass Essex Bridge Kitchen Faucet in polished chrome is highly reflective and offers a colder but eye-catching tone. This fixture matches modern and stark design styles.
Lighting Brings Out Different Color
Another key when thinking through how lighting will affect kitchen decor is to consider how colors in any chosen scheme will be affected. When looking at paint chips in a hardware store or holding up a piece of decor in a boutique, the colors perceived might appear different than they will later in an actual kitchen.
Bring home paint samples, fabric, and finish types. Test out what colors look like in the kitchen space.
Lighting Creates a Mood
Finally, keep in mind that the lighting chosen for a kitchen will affect the mood of the space. For those looking to design an inviting, farm-style kitchen, warm, natural lighting is key. For a modern and sleek kitchen style, colder and artificial lighting is ideal.
Lighting Paired with Stunning Fixtures
At the end of the day, lighting changes the mood, style, and feel of any space. Kingston Brass offers fixtures to pair with any lighting and design choice. From stark and modern to warm and traditional, shop Kingston Brass to find the ideal kitchen fixtures.
