With summer fast approaching, now can be the perfect time to assess your kitchen lighting and see where upgrades could be made. You might be planning to spend more time in the kitchen this summer, making delicious meals during the week or preparing food for weekend cookouts. Whatever the case may be, it’s important to have the proper kitchen lights so that you can see as you cook, clean, and entertain. At Passion Lighting in Grapevine, we can help you find new light fixtures for a kitchen of any size!

Weekday Meals

As you’re making lunch or dinner during the week, whether that’s using whatever you can find in the fridge or actually following a recipe, it can be beneficial to have task lighting that provides adequate illumination as you prep and serve a meal. Under cabinet lighting and island pendants can make your kitchen brighter and more functional, and you’ll definitely notice a difference with new fixtures in place.

With the kids home from school during the summer, you might be having more meals in the kitchen, especially if you have a dine-in kitchen area or a breakfast nook. Consider removing the old semi-flush mount light above this seating area and replacing it with a mini chandelier or large pendant. You can add a touch of style while improving the overall ambience of the room!

Weekend Entertaining

One of the best things about summer is entertaining friends and family. You might have regular cookouts or backyard parties, and food is always involved with these gatherings. You’ll need your kitchen to prepare all the food, even if you’re grilling most of it outside. Guests will still congregate in the kitchen, as people tend to gravitate towards where the snacks and hors d’oeuvres are being made.

Having new kitchen lights can make the space more inviting, while also helping set the mood for your weekend gatherings. You can turn on the island lights and leave the overhead fixtures off, or dim the recessed lights in the ceiling and accentuate the room with the under cabinet fixtures. Your new lighting will likely be more versatile than the old, and you can make your kitchen a room in which everyone feels comfortable.
