An additional kitchen lighting option consists of the installation of LED illumination elements inside or under kitchen cabinets. There are small LED light fixtures, as well as, LED strips that are made for this type of installation. These light fixtures have a number of diodes mounted on the lighting strip so it is easily installed under the vast majority of kitchen cabinets. This sort of lighting supplies soft illumination for kitchen counter work areas. These LEDs are usually available in sections that can be linked together to fit under different sizes of cabinets. Such lighting may also be installed inside kitchen cabinets.

There are alternative ceiling fixtures to choose from other than the plain, flush-with-the-ceiling glass fixtures. Lighting fixtures for ambient light include ceiling fans with lights, mini chandelier lights and pot rack lighting. Mini chandelier fixtures are simply a collection of lights that are put together as one group, yet are not big enough to be a true chandelier. Pot rack lighting is relatively new on the scene, allowing you to use your pot rack over your kitchen island for dual purposes.

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. We are sure that they helped us to save money creating a space in our home that is both useful and beautiful.

• Use directional recessed lights to highlight artwork in the kitchen or collectibles displayed above the cabinets. If you have a glassed-in or open area of display shelves in your cabinets, light these with small halogen or fluorescent strip lights.

• Whether you are washing dirty dishes or slicing vegetables, the sink needs to be lit effectively. Since recessed lights direct light down, they are a good choice over the sink.

Accent or Prominent lighting: This type of lighting gives a depth and dimension to your kitchen. It helps you to display your most decorative items in your kitchen like a fancy glassware or tableware, stylish luxury cutlery sets, beautiful canvas art prints or may be your nicely prepared food. For example lighting fixtures can be placed inside glass-front cabinets to illuminate glassware, and other collections as well as recessed, adjustable low-voltage fixtures used to spotlight canvas art prints. You can put to use spotlights to illuminate your cooked food which will also help it remain hot for longer period of time.

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.
