Open Your Kitchen to the SkyPosted by: Kat Wiseman
Some of our best memories come from time spent in the kitchen: baking cookies with Grandma and learning all of her old recipes, making a mess with the kids on their science fair projects and rainy day crafts, gathering with friends and family during holidays and celebrations, to name a few.
Suffice to say, the kitchen is one of the most important rooms in your house - and not just because it's where the food comes from! So wouldn't you say your kitchen deserves the very best, from appliances to cabinets to lighting?
Natural Light for a Brighter Kitchen
It's hard to imagine any artificial light as a suitable replacement for natural daylight, yet we fill our homes with garish fluorescents and dim lamps. All the while, natural light has been cited for its positive effects on health and productivity for years. At Velux, we think it's time to say "hello" to natural light, and what better room to start than the kitchen?
Whether you're planning a complete kitchen remodel or are just looking for new lighting, ask your architect if skylights will work with your design!
By incorporating top lighting, you're able to free up cabinet space where you'd normally have traditional windows. This healthy dose of natural light will also make it easier to see while cooking and entertaining. Even with a flat ceiling, this look can be achieved with skylights by utilizing Velux's Sun Tunnels or one of our Solar Powered "Fresh Air" Skylights. Venting skylights are also a perfect fit for the kitchen as they allow you to air out any cooking smells and infuse fresh air throughout the room.
Choosing the right type of light for your home is an important task, so remember that natural light sources are your best options for your kitchen.
