Kitchen Lighting for Safety

Sure, it might sound like a long shot, but millions of people every year accidentally cut themselves in the kitchen. While there’s nothing we can do about genetic clumsiness, improving lighting conditions in your kitchen can save you the trouble of having to go to the emergency room for an accidental cut.

Not many people realize that kitchens are dangerous places. There are knives and other sharp utensils in every corner. Even the food you handle can potentially hurt you, and the edge of an open can cover can easily give you more than a paper cut. If you spend a lot of time in the kitchen, then you know that there are several possible scenarios that end in you getting hurt.

If you don’t want every meal prep time to look like something out of a horror show, consider installing proper kitchen lights—meaning lights that don’t leave you straining your eyes while chopping onions. Kitchen light is supposed to give off a functional amount of light to ensure you can clearly see what you’re doing around the kitchen.

Also, there’s a reason that pendant lights are almost always found in the average kitchen. Aside from the stylish down rod that lends it an air of modern minimalism, pendant lights give a lot of bright, direct lighting to one specific area. If you have a kitchen island with pendant lights, it may be a good idea to store away your cutlery here, as well as other relatively sharp objects. It’s also an excellent place to do any chopping of vegetables, or carving of meat, because of the special kitchen lighting that will help you avoid missing every tiny swish of the knife.

LED lights are often excellent choices of lighting. These may be a little more expensive than your regular incandescent light, but they last a lot longer and are better sources of kitchen lighting. Even the small switch to LED lights might ultimately save you a finger or two. Unless, of course you’d like to examine the different kinds of lighting from the inside of an operating room.
