the first thing that springs to your customer’s mind when planning a kitchen, when we asked consumers about what they’d do differently if designing their kitchen again, 88% said lighting would be up there as their biggest priority. While lighting alone illuminates a space,


combining different lighting techniques can help showrooms achieve more for customers. Accent lighting highlights specific features within a room for example, while spotlights focus the eyes on a specific area, highlighting interesting objects or acting as pathfinders. Task lighting – often in strip form – is ideal for food preparation areas or if a kitchen is used as a home office, for work areas too. Meanwhile, ambient lighting helps achieve a specific mood and can make a space feel bigger or cosier. It’s also important to think about different


cabinetry styles and lighting combinations. Polished chrome pendant lighting can make a traditional style kitchen feel elegant and understated. Or placed above an island, it creates drama and a focal point of a space. Meanwhile, subtle ribbon lighting on plinths really sets off a streamlined linear kitchen and creates a slick, hi-tech feel. Adding to this futuristic aesthetic, concealed


switches can be installed into wood, glass or stone so they are totally hidden from view for a minimalist finish. Smart LED lighting systems can also be controlled via apps or wireless switches giving the user full command over all aspects of their lighting. They also allow customers to set their own colours and brightness of the lighting in their room for a truly personalised experience that’s activated at the touch of a button. As showrooms look to make the most of the


demand for kitchens after a period of uncertainty and limited retailing, Häfele’s aim with Aspekt is to give retailers a new string to their bow and, when paired with accessories and ironmongery, endless styles and combinations that inspire the customer and help secure the all-important sale.
