Your kitchen is that one room of the house where you really need plenty of ambient lighting (i.e. general lighting). You can start with recessed lights and then illuminate your countertops with LED lights at the bottom of your upper cabinets. Adding some task lighting, such as track lights above the sink, is also a convenient idea. If you have a kitchen island, you can light it up with a pendant light or a chandelier.
Your bedroom lighting should be soft and relaxing. So apart from a main ambient light such as a pendant light, preferably dimmable, you can consider adding some indirect, low brightness lights. A wall light or a table lamp on each side of the bed is ideal for your bedtime reading, while a LED stripe or profile in the closet can save the day when you’re looking for your favourite t-shirt!

Extra Tips: Colour Temperature!
It’s not just the type of lighting that will make a room more functional and stylish. The colour temperature also plays a vital role to the room atmosphere!
Warm White Light
Warm white light is a bit yellowish and adds a warm, cozy feeling to your space. It’s ideal for bedrooms and living rooms, where you just want to chill and feel comfy.
Cool White Light
Cool white light is whiter in colour and perfect for rooms and spaces where you want to be focused and energized, such as kitchens and bathrooms.
Day light is even brighter, more like a sunny day! It’s ideal for hobbies and activities such as reading or DIY projects. You can also use it in rooms and spaces where you need to pay attention to detail, such as kitchens and bathrooms.
