Light Up Your Kitchen with Smart LED Bulbs

If you’re looking for a way to add a little pizzazz to your kitchen but don’t quite have the funds to hire an interior designer, then incorporating a bit of smart lighting into your cooking sanctuary might be exactly what you’re looking for.

In addition to a modest price tag when compared to other remodeling methods, smart lighting offers an incredible amount of versatility. From being able to set each bulb to the brightness you’re looking for to choosing from over 16 million different colors of light, smart bulbs are the next big thing in home decoration.

Check out these kitchen lighting ideas to see just a few of the amazing things you can do to spruce up your home with smart lighting.

Use smart lighting to brighten up your kitchen

One of the most useful features of smart lighting is the ability to brighten any smart bulb as much as you want. This comes in particularly handy when you’re cooking up a feast in the kitchen as it’s important, both to the meal and to your safety, to chop and sauté in a kitchen full of bright, clear light like in the kitchen above which features bright overhead lighting.

Or you can selectively brighten just the areas where the most precise movements are performed like countertops in this kitchen design. Either way, your smart bulbs will ensure you have the customizability available to prepare a phenomenal meal.

Find the right mood with these kitchen lighting ideas

When it comes time to sit down to enjoy the meal you’ve just prepared, don’t bother turning individual lights on and off to make dinner conversation more enjoyable. All you have to do is switch your kitchen smart lighting over to your custom brightness and color setting and your kitchen is transformed into a romantic restaurant for you to savor your home cooked meal in. You can even add some soothing jazz to the experience straight from your light bulbs with these Flux Smart bulbs that double as speakers!

Or for a simpler yet functional lighting design for dinner, try using a single light source from above to illuminate your meal to cut out distractions from the food and the conversation.

Accentuate your kitchen’s best features

Just because kitchen lighting is primarily used to make it easier to cook up a fantastic meal doesn’t mean your lights can’t add a bit of flair to everyone’s favorite room. Accent lighting can be used in a multitude of ways to make your kitchen pop. In the design above for instance, the under cabinet lighting not only lets you prepare a meal with precision and accuracy, it also adds a whole new color scheme to the area.

In addition to bringing out even more colors in your kitchen, accent lighting can also be used to call attention to decorations that give the area a bit of character. The kitchen above, for instance, gives off an entirely different mood once the greens and purple of the plant filled tea cups are illuminated.
