Create an efficient working space
Task lighting does exactly as the name suggests. It is perfectly positioned to ensure the kitchen is an efficient working space for everyday tasks like food preparation. Understanding the lighting needs for your kitchen as a working space is crucial when planning your lighting scheme. Consider how you envision using the space and where and when you will need specific light sources.
Puck Light or Strip Light?
Task lighting is positioned under wall units to illuminate the worktop, giving light exactly where it is needed. However, there are two types of task lighting to consider; puck lighting & strip lighting.
If you choose to use puck lights, we recommend 2-3 pucks every 3 feet. The effect created is a coned beam.
Strip lights provide a continuous run of light with no breaks to create a flood of lighting on the countertop.
