Upgrading Your Kitchen With Decorative Lighting

19th May 2017

Deciding to renovate or update a home could be the result of a myriad of reasons: maybe you’re looking to put your property on the market and want to impress potential buyers; or you may simply want to give your home a face lift to better suit your personal style and taste.

The most common starting place for a home update is in the kitchen. Unfortunately, this area of your home likely requires pricey upgrades — including appliances, cabinetry, plumbing/electrical lines and more — which can quickly become an overwhelming stressor on your budget.

However, with a few simple tricks, you can achieve a small upgrade for your kitchen that could potentially make a big difference to the look and feel of your home. Continue reading to learn about our innovative kitchen lighting solutions.

Discover Fluorescent Light Covers

Having grown rapidly in popularity over the last few years, decorative fluorescent light covers are, without a doubt, an innovation when it comes to decorative lighting and can truly transform any room or space into a work of impeccable art and beauty.

Made primarily of a light diffusing panel, light covers go over any existing fluorescent lighting and display a wide array of images to create an incredible effect on the eye. Although, they’re mainly used in homes, offices and businesses, fluorescent light covers are more-than-appropriate for any space you plan on installing fluorescent light fixtures in.

For instance, if your kitchen is extremely cramped and is without windows, then the smartest and most cost-effective solution is to install cloud-themed fluorescent light covers on your kitchen ceiling. With these in place, the images of clouds and the blue sky are showcased whenever you or someone else walks in your kitchen, creating the exact same effect of a real skylight, without the huge cost and hassle of installing real skylights.

Now that you know what fluorescent light covers are, in order to understand why they’re the best option when it comes to upgrading your home's kitchen, let’s explore the best light covers to use for achieving this goal:

Start With Fluorescent Light Covers For Your Kitchen’s Ceiling

Fluorescent light covers are an affordable, yet effective upgrade for any room and can truly transform your walls and ceilings into a work of art,  making them the perfect option for significantly livening up your kitchen. What are fluorescent light covers?

Made up primarily by a light diffusing panel, these innovative light covers display a custom image to pull off an amazing effect on the eye and act as a window into any scene of your choosing.

For example: create a skylight in your kitchen instantly (without cutting a hole in your ceiling) through the use of cloud and sky themed fluorescent light cover panels that give the same look and feel of real skylight windows.

Decorative Light Covers for Your Walls

Another innovative way to spruce up your kitchen is to use decorative light diffuser panels on your walls. This method provides the same effect as your ceilings, but when combined can create an even more convincing and eye-popping look.

Keep summer alive all year round by placing multiple beach-themed diffuser panels on your kitchen walls to create a large window onto a sunny tropical escape or use fish-themed panels to create the illusion that your kitchen is submerged underwater. The possibilities are endless.
