Lighting a kitchen means giving it life. And there’s nothing we love more at OB Cocinas than helping you to liven up your kitchen. In this new blog post we’re going to talk about lighting solutions and systems that will serve as inspiration, helping you to choose the right lighting for your kitchen and turn the space into the heart of your home.
Let there be light
Good lighting is vital in any type of kitchen. It can be used to delimit areas, produce different atmospheres and create functional and practical spaces that make day-to-day life easier. Lighting also does a lot of heavy lifting when it comes to transmitting feelings of calm, warmth and spaciousness.
That’s why you need to take lighting into consideration when planning your renovation. The available space, natural light or lack thereof, the type of furniture, the colours of the furniture, the floor and walls, and, of course, the way you plan to use the light will guide you when it comes to choosing the right type of lighting.
So, let’s take a look at the kitchen lighting solutions that we offer at OB Cocinas.
From the top of the unit
Overhead lighting is perfect for tall units with glass doors since it makes everything inside visible and adds an extra point of light for a more relaxed atmosphere. Surface-mounted LED spotlights do an excellent job. You can opt for a round or square design, depending on what fits best with the style of your kitchen.
And if you’re looking for enhanced convenience, you’ll love the LED system with motion sensor. Also installed in the top of the unit, it is embedded horizontally for a practically concealed lighting source. The motion sensor turns on the light when you open the door, lighting your way exactly when you need it.
Kitchens often require precise lighting for tasks that range from cooking to cleaning and organizing. That means the lighting used for work tops needs to be planned with particular care.
We’ve got two options that you’ll love. One is the extra-slim LED, an innovative system that requires no cutting or complicated installation: simply place under wall-mounted units for a discreet and ultra-practical solution.
A more sophisticated option is our touch/Bluetooth LED system. Also designed for the lower part of the wall units, lights are switched on by touch or Bluetooth. Space is cut into the cabinet to fully embed the LED into the unit, making it the perfect way to add an elegant and perfectly functional and discreet touch.
Add light inside
OB furniture is full of happy surprises, the result of our commitment to designing kitchen furniture that makes life easier. And the interior lighting systems are a good example.
The automatic LEDs for drawers and doors take style and functionality to the highest levels. Simply open a cabinet or drawer and voilà – the entire interior is lit.
