Light is affected by reflection of light, window and skylight.
1. Reflectance levels.
The amount of light reflected in a room is affected by the various coloured surfaces in a room, such as a tile floor, painted wall, and fabric’s texture and colour. It should be noted that light colors are very reflective and dark colors are light absorbent. White, on the extreme, will reflect 80% of the light in a room, and black, on the extreme, will reflect 4% of it.
2. Windows and skylights.
Rooms with large windows and skylights have natural light to illuminate the room.
Keep in mind the various activities you intend to perform in the kitchen and the type of ambiance you want.
