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.

The function of your kitchen: depending on what you use your kitchen for you may need to make additional allowances in the type of lighting that you have fitted. For example, if you tend to dine in your kitchen in addition to cooking in it, it might be a good idea to install a dimmer switch to give you the freedom of having full brightness or having a more cozy or romantic ambiance.

When recently refurbishing our home and deciding on our options for the new kitchen, we had not given much thought to the type of kitchen lighting fixtures that should be installed. Originally, we focused on appliances and cabinet layouts. After consulting with a few kitchen design experts we learned that it was just as important to spend time considering what kitchen lighting fixtures to install. I realize now just how important these are and what a difference they have made to the entire kitchen! We were so pleased to have been offered such excellent help from our professional kitchen planning expert, who not only helped us design the most amazing kitchen around our available space, they also gave excellent advice on the most superb kitchen lighting fixtures that were eventually added.

Ceiling fixtures are designed in a way to provide general lighting to the entire kitchen. Typically, they project down from the ceiling and are usually the biggest lighting piece found in the kitchen. These fixtures can also be hung over a breakfast nook or a kitchen table. There are two types of ceiling fixture; flush-mount ceiling fixture with the glass or diffuser touching the ceiling and semi-flush ceiling fixtures where the bowl projecting from the ceiling such that it hangs a couple of inches away, with indirect light reflecting from the ceiling (think of it like an upside down umbrella).

Ambient or Glow or Indirect Lighting: This type of lighting lends a pleasant glow to your kitchen, thus giving a warm welcome to the people entering into the kitchen. It plays a major role in softening unwanted shadows, reducing kitchen room contrast and lighting vertical surfaces to give the space a brighter feel. It is generally observed that out of the four types of lighting, ambient is most often overlooked. In fact, the most dramatic and soft look you can achieve in a kitchen is by blending indirect lighting with other types of lighting. It is often created by hiding the light source from view where it bounces off a ceiling or a wall and produces a warm glow that adds enormous amounts of ambiance if done correctly. Best places for ambient lights can be hidden on top of wall cabinets if the ceiling is bit high or they can be installed in layered ceiling areas that surround the entire kitchen space. In case your kitchen has light colored surfaces and lots of windows then you can desire to have plenty of natural ambient light during the day. CFL based lights tubes (light link) are well suited to the job of providing ambient light.
