With the holiday season officially upon us, it’s important for home owners to get their humble abodes into tip-top shape for entertaining family and friends. We recently conducted a survey that found 84 percent of Americans wish they had better home lighting – an astounding number to say the least! Additionally, we found our respondents felt that lighting is the most important factor for creating ambiance within the home. Last, but not least, in regards to holiday entertaining, 74 percent felt that the right lighting was absolutely essential when welcoming guests. One “kitchen theory” places guests in the kitchen due to proximity to drinks and food. Some feel it is based upon a need for people to be close to the action, while others see it as an altruistic trait to offer help to the hosts. Whichever theory resonates with you, the kitchen serves as a hub for entertaining and is the one place in your home where the chef must shine. According to our survey, 34 percent of those sampled wish they had better lighting while cooking—and with good reason. Whipping up the perfect holiday meal is no easy feat, and precise lighting plays a role both in preparation and entertaining. To ensure versatile, yet stimulating lighting for the kitchen, we keep these tips in mind to improve a better lit kitchen this holiday season: Once your kitchen is ready for prime time, you can move on to other areas of your home.
