Your kitchen is one of the most used homes in your house. So much goes on in there, from cooking to eating, to doing homework. Adequate light is needed in every room, since you and your family are always in the kitchen, why not make the most out of functionality and design?
Have a lot of counter space and want to make food preparation easier or just to add an overall light effect to your kitchen. You should install under cabinet lighting. You can install under cabinet lights, like the Progress P7017-30EBS right under the cabinets. Or if you don’t want something that bulky, there are puck lights, like the Maxim 87883BK Black Three Light Puck Under Cabinet or even strip lights.
Do you have limited head room in your kitchen? Install a flush mount or a semi flush ceiling light to ensure you have one overhead light to provide general lighting in your kitchen without sacrificing space. Try Murray Feiss’ SF1890ORB Gravity 3-Light Wrought Iron Semi-Flush Ceiling Fixture.
Don’t just limit yourself to flush mount fixtures or recessed lights. Expand your horizons into hanging lights, like pendants and chandeliers. The heights of these can be adjusted. Pendant lights even can help accent a chandelier. You can even put a row of pendants over your kitchen island, but be sure to to make sure you space them out correctly so you don’t over due it on the amount of fixtures you have in your kitchen. Try the Emory Collection from Quoizel. You can mix and match a chandelier with different sized pendants for you kitchen.
Bonus Light! You should find a range hood that has lighting elements to help you see what you’re doing as you toil over a hot stove. Like the Cavaliere Hoods SV218D-30 Stainless Steel Wall Mount Range Hood, which has 4 35W Halogen Lights.
