Kitchens are multifunctional spaces that first and foremost need bright, practical lighting for meal preparation and cooking. Bear in mind how much natural light you can rely on, especially during those grey winter afternoons. More often than not the kitchen is also used for informal dining, warranting a more atmospheric scene option, and as a a space for the family to work; this should also be taken into account when planning a scheme. All this will require a certain number of circuits; so quite often a control system will help to reduce the number of wall switches.
