Step Up Your Cooking Game With Better Lighting And More Features
Looking for a quick and easy way to dramatically improve your kitchen? Electrical upgrades will not only add more style, they’ll increase efficiency and convenience, making cooking and dining more enjoyable. Here are some of our top recommendations for kitchen upgrades.
Where’s The Nearest Outlet?
Running long cords around the kitchen isn’t just inconvenient, it’s an invitation for an accident. Outlets are not just for walls, they can be installed almost anywhere: on the side of an island, in a countertop pop-up, under cabinets, even inside drawers. With multi-outlet strips under cabinets you’ll never be looking for an open outlet again.
Even the most delicious looking dish is going to look blah under dull-green florescent lighting. Here are just a few of the advantages you’ll enjoy when upgrading your kitchen to LED lighting.
- Color Temperature Control – Set the color to exactly the color you like, from warmer tones to cooler blues and everything in between.
- Lighting Where You Need It – Compact LEDs can be installed inside cabinets and drawers, while LED strips can be run above cabinets near the ceiling to create a pleasing ambient glow.
- Intensity Control – LEDs can throw a broad light to fill the entire kitchen, or focused beams to light up work areas such as the cooktops and sinks.
- Smart Home Compatible – Control your lights from your smartphone or smart speaker. “Hey Alexa, turn on the island lights up 20 percent.”
Light Up The Island
Pendant lights are one of the most functional fixtures to place over an island. They’re available in a wide range of styles from traditional to sleek and modern designs. Whatever style you choose, pendant lights will be the centerpiece of your kitchen.
Nobody like to cook in a humid, smokey kitchen. It’s not just unpleasant, it’s unhealthy. If your range lacks a ventilation hood, or your current ventilation is not up to the task, more powerful ventilation fans will help clear the air.
