Ambient Lighting

Depending on the size of your kitchen, you may need only one ambient light fixture or you may need several. Many people use recessed lighting for ambient light, but a central ambient light can create a focal point for the space. Consider a small chandelier or flush or semi-flush light to provide central lighting that isn’t too bright.

Kitchen Island Lights

Because the island is such a central fixture of the kitchen, it must be lit properly. Kitchen island lighting is supposed to help you see, accent the design of the countertop, and help you when you’re doing a task. A few popular options are pendant lights or a single fixture with multiple lights. It is usually good to go with an odd number of lights, such as three or five..

Under Cabinet Lights

Under cabinet lighting is the most important type of task lighting to consider in your new kitchen. Under cabinet lighting can help you chop veggies or mix a cake for dessert. LED lighting makes modern under cabinet lights bright and energy-efficient. You can either use modular lights or LED tape to make them as discreet as possible. Under cabinet lighting can serve as the perfect low ambient light for the evening to keep on if you need to go into the kitchen at night.

Breakfast Nook Lights

If you have a dining area or breakfast nook in your kitchen, the most popular type of lighting for this area is hanging lights. You can go with pendant lights or a small chandelier, like you did for the kitchen island. If the table or nook is up against the wall, you can opt for a wall sconce to light the space more effectively.

Whatever kind of light your new kitchen needs, there are a variety of options to make your kitchen well lit and all your own. From under cabinet lights to help you complete tasks to elegant chandeliers as a center point, you can design and light your kitchen any way you like.
