It is essential that there is optimal lighting in a kitchen for the tasks that are completed. Pairing sconces above the kitchen sink allows for light to remain functional at all times. Use these tips when hanging sconces above a kitchen sink.
- The lighting fixtures should be high enough so that when people stand in front of them, they aren’t directly staring into the light.
- Place fixtures at least 72” above the ground. Or, place fixtures at least 28“-34” above the countertop.
- Leave between 3”-5” of space between the window and the light fixture.
- Center the lighting fixtures in between the window and cabinets, if necessary.
Tip: Make sure that any lighting fixture that may come into contact with water or moisture is damp or wet-rated.
