To lighten a small kitchen we do recommend to focus on lights more technical and efficient, directing the budget to lamps with high performances and with absolute guarantee.

Because the solely chandelier cannot be enough to en light the kitchen in a correct way, we do recommend you to strengthen the lighting by means of led strips suitable for under-cabinets, to eliminate the grey areas which inevitably occur. Under the cabinets it is necessary a good brightness, because in this working area the chef takes care of foods, by preparing and cooking them.
