If you use your kitchen for a variety of functions and would like to achieve different lighting effects, you would have to use a variety of lighting fixtures and elements. There is simply no way for you to achieve all that you want with just one set of fixtures. What you should do is to combine one idea with others and use different kinds of fixtures. You can also additionally have different switches for each set of lights and dimmers to help you achieve the perfect kitchen lighting effect.
The hallmark of almost all good kitchen lighting designs is the use of numerous light sources rather than relying on say just a couple of bright fluorescent strip lights. The reason is simple; kitchens are fundamentally work areas and require task lighting which typically needs to be placed between you and the items you are working with. If the main lighting in the room is located in the middle of the ceiling then you invariably find yourself working in your own shadow.
Essentially, there are three types of kitchen lighting: Ambient, Task and Accent. Each has its own particular function to fulfill. And while you don't always need all of them at the same time, they need to be able to work both independently and as a group, when necessary.
