wash the fronts of cabinets with lights and add focus over a central island. In the past halogen was the light source but now the AmbiDim Polestar from John Cullen Lighting is an 8W LED solution that, when dimmed, gives a soft, warm light just like halogen, whereas all other LED lights when dimmed tend to provide a dull, grey light.


4. For a kitchen island, a soft, continuous under light, or recessed floor washers, like the 1W Cazalla from John Cullen Lighting, set into the plinth provide interest at low level skimming light across the floor.


5. If one wants to consider a separation between a dining zone and the kitchen area, sometimes glamorous pendants can provide a visual break.


6. If your kitchen has a high ceiling you can put uplighters on top of your kitchen cabinets, which will reduce the number of downlights you need and provide a wonderful airy feeling. A good solution is to use either low energy LED Contour strips or even a warm white fluorescent. This is an excellent way to achieve a good result with a low energy light source. Another option is to use pendants that create a soft glow and help reduce the scale.

7. If you eat or entertain in your kitchen then it is useful to be able to dim the working part of the kitchen – helping to hide any washing up – while creating a convivial atmosphere in the area you are eating. Always control the focused light over the dining table separately from the working light. If possible also introduce some soft lighting by the table such as wall lights or lamps on a dresser. The ideal way is to control the lights using a Graphif Eye that allows the lights to be preset so that at the touch of a button the lighting can automatically adjust from the working light to an intimate dining setting.


The John Cullen Lighting showroom has a kitchen set up to show endless lighting solutions so that a designer can really understand the effects.
