It should therefore be decorated not only in a utilitarian fashion but attractively as well. One of the features that can help make or break a kitchen's appearance is its lighting. Ideally a balance should be found between function and atmosphere, ensuring enough bright light is provided for safety, without being too harsh for a warm and pleasant ambiance. The following are basic kitchen lighting ideas to help find that balance, starting with the extremes.
For the breakfast area a good overhead light is useful since this area is also frequently used for reading. For more kitchen lighting ideas you can consider such lighting systems as chandeliers to high-tech flexible track lighting with decorative pendants. With a dimmer switch these ceiling-hung fixtures will produce adequate task lighting for family activities. You can also lower the light for entertaining.
Kitchen lighting fixtures nowadays often include spectacular above cupboard lighting with some great options to choose from. For our kitchen, long arm halogen lights spaced at regular intervals, were perfect, and have proved to be an essential addition, particularly when removing items towards the back of the cupboards! Under the cupboards, above each of the work spaces, we chose a number of evenly spaced halogen lights with triangle-shaped glass covers that perfectly fan out the light across the counter top area.
