Selecting just the right kitchen lighting can be a simple process. You first need to identify the main areas of the kitchen that need sufficient lighting. With specific tasks over the range or cook top, you can use an energy efficient fluorescent tube along with a standard range fan, or a recessed down light in the general area of the stove. One or two track lights over the sink area can provide the correct amount of illumination that would be needed for washing dishes and scouring pots and pans.
Do you use your kitchen for a variety of uses? You'll want to use many different lighting fixtures to get different lighting effects. If you have ambitious kitchen lighting goals, you will need many various fixtures. Combine various lighting ideas and use numerous kinds of fixtures. Also using various switches and dimmers will help make 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.
