Today, most kitchens have at least one ceiling light fixture, that is mounted on the kitchen's ceiling surface or is recessed in the ceiling. These lighting fixtures often use compact fluorescent light bulbs or standard incandescent light bulbs. A number of manufacturers now make bulbs that work with these standard sockets. Replacing the standard light bulbs in these lighting fixtures with LED bulbs is definitely the most basic way to achieve kitchen lighting. There are bulbs that can be used in recessed light sockets too. LED bulbs are a good replacement option because they produce less heat and save energy.

Task Lighting or Chore Lighting: It illuminates the most functional and practical part of your kitchen by providing adequate lighting for kitchen core tasks like chopping vegetables, cooking food and yes, reading recipes. Most of the accidents which occur in kitchen are mostly due to this tasks and proper task lighting design can really prevent them. Task areas should have sufficient light so you can easily see what you're working on without too much brightness or eye-straining dimness. The main thing to remember here is most of the time task lighting instead of brightening up a task area, shadows it. For this to not take place, task lights is best placed between the actual work place and your head which makes lighting located say below the upper cabinets very helpful. For example, task lighting is placed over the sink, gas cooker and food preparation area, where close work is done regularly. Most of task lighting is achieved by using conventional recessed lights that assure even illumination, surface lights or table tops lights. Remember that each task lights if possible should have its own switch and honestly you will be pleased with the result. Considering the types of bulbs for task lighting then halogen and CFL (in energy efficient bulbs category) being bright and shadow less with large surface area are best to go for. It electrifies the look of granite and marble counter tops and it even let you enjoy your food cooking task, seriously.

The three basic types of kitchen light fixtures are those that provide ambient, task and mood or accent lighting. The ambient fixtures simply give a widespread light for the entire kitchen area. The task lights focus on each task station. Mood or accent lights add a note of interest, and may illuminate a particular object.

• Recessed lights mounted just in front of the cabinets serve several purposes. They produce a soft ambient light, they send extra light into the cabinets to help eliminate searching through dark cabinets, and they provide added light on the counter tops.
