Kitchen Lighting Ideas for Brightening your Home

by Shea Homes on July 19, 2018

The Dunes Beach House in Marina, CA

Each Shea home is built with a focus on the lives of the people who will live in it. The commitment to quality and detail can be seen in the floor plans, the door frames, and yes, even the lighting. With the right lighting, we illuminate our spaces to help create an atmosphere that the whole family will enjoy. This is especially true of a Shea Homes® kitchen, where we know so many activities and life moments will take place, from family dinners, to school projects, to holiday gatherings. In many ways, the kitchen is the center of our homes that brings people together, where we begin and end our days with meals and conversations. Whether it’s midday baking or late-night cocktails, having the right lighting in the kitchen not only brings the room together but also adds atmosphere to every meal.
