When tasks involve focusing on objects related to your work, the lighting should make it easy and stress free.
Three incandescent 60W bulbs illuminated the kitchen space. No attention was given to the task lighting needs of this space, especially under and over cabinet lighting, as well as the illumination needed over the main cooking area.
Our solution was to remove the incandescent pendant and replace it with LED retrofit based ceiling fixture that mounts to the surface. In addition, we added LED down lighters to illuminate the cooking area. Under and over cabinet lighting was provided using LED strip lights. Total energy used was reduced to one third with much better task and general lighting needed in the space.
