“Neon lights shimmering neon lights and at the fall of night this [kitchen’s] made of light”… Before you really start to wonder why I’ve taken liberty with the lyrics to a Kraftwerk song from 1978 let me explain myself! Today’s post explores the vivid world of neon lighting in the kitchen. Some say this room is the heart of the home. So why not give it a fluorescent glow?
If your alley through the garden is close to the house like in most cases you can accompany the walk with wall appliqués or wall lamps built on the house wall. There are many options to use here from more classical lamps with lampshades to very minimalistic and modern wall appliqués with simple and attractive geometries.
Neon lighting is also striking on the underside of cabinets as shown in this 2011 award-winning kitchen designed by Mal Corboy. As you can see blue is a fitting choice for the lighting especially since it nicely complements azure evening views from the home’s expansive windows and sliding doors…
If you have a large wellness bathroom you can also resort to lighting fantasies such as pendant lamps especially hung over a sunken hot tub especially since there’s no danger of knocking your head against it.
Small floor lamps are also suited among your flower arrangements in the shapes of glowing rocks or long flexible glowing LED-tubes.
We start by showcasing neon lighting that illuminates the bars and islands of the kitchen. In fact many people relish the day when they can finally have a kitchen with an island. Who doesn’t love a little extra space for food preparation? Which is why a bit of lighting under the surface does its part to spotlight the culinary bar below.
