If your kitchen and your dining room are a combined space, the whole look of the room should be very warm and charming. Combined kitchens and dining rooms are a very familiar and homely thing, and they work great in spaces that are cozy and lovely.
It is a very intimate space, and the idea of a family dinner near a kitchen wakes many beautiful memories in people. And as one of the most important elements of kitchen and dining room design there’s lighting. It is very important, and it’s also very important how you will adapt it to your taste, and that it looks chic, luxurious and elegant at the same time.
Some people prefer strong lighting in their kitchen, while others favor a more romantic dining table light. It is up to you to decide what you want and like. Adding focus to the kitchen and dining room lighting is a very simple process, and it really does change the entire ambiance of the combined rooms, and it can easily transform a room from a plain room into an oasis of warmth, security and hospitality.
You can set multiple lighting points across the entire room or you can focus on only one in the space. If you commonly have romantic dinners or dinners with friends, we suggest that you add a unique chandelier above the dining room table, which will shine gentle rays of light across the room. It is great if you are looking to add a more intimate and romantic atmosphere. If you are not a fan of chandeliers, just add some simple dimmers on the lights in your dining room and kitchen, and you will achieve the same effect more or less.
And as kitchens are mostly made from materials that reflect light, light will bounce from them and will be moved forward, to the objects that are not in focus. You can add another lighting point in the form of a chandelier, or a few wall lamps, as well as a chic combo of chandeliers and lamps.
But, artificial lighting is only one piece of the cake. Although it is very important, it doesn’t work that well on it’s own. It needs to be combined with other types of lighting, most importantly sunlight and natural light shining through your windows. And that’s why your windows are a big part of your kitchen and dining room. Light is essential if you want a successfully designed kitchen and dining room. If you’re looking to add a bit of flexibility to the mix, put quality blinds on your windows. They will give you a few more options when it comes to lighting your dining room and your kitchen.
Pick what suits you the best and change the ambiance of your kitchen and your dining room from simple to magical. It is not a difficult process, but it is a truly very rewarding one that will make your every day a little bit more special.
