Using Dimmers in the Kitchen
People do a variety of tasks in the kitchen, our expert explains, so they need various light levels.
Why use dimmers?
Like in any room in the house, it’s good to have a variety of light levels available. When preparing a meal, it’s beneficial to have a bright punch of illumination.
