Design with Low-Energy Lighting

The energy-efficient artificial lighting in the kitchen includes a cutting-edge kind of strip light with ultra-efficient light-emitting diodes (LEDs), over the cabinets, which illuminate the ceiling and bounce diffused light down throughout the room. LEDs use one-tenth the energy of traditional incandescent lights and last 50 times longer. The recessed fixtures are equipped with compact-fluorescent bulbs, which last four times as long as incandescents and use a quarter of the energy. The pendant fixtures have halogen bulbs, which aren't as efficient as LEDs or fluorescents but are still considered a green option for bright light.
