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).

If you are spending the money on nice cabinets or a dinner table in the kitchen, for example, you want to make sure they are lit properly. If not, the light actually creates gray shadow areas. If you have deep cabinets in dark corners, you might even want to consider installing lights inside them so you can see what's hiding in the back

Shadows: One of the main problems with overhead lighting is that downward light will cast shadows and leave areas of darkness because there are places that it simply cannot reach. Areas such as those beneath cabinets will not be adequately lit by a ceiling light therefore additional lighting such as under cabinet lighting may become necessary. You will need to choose the appropriate lighting for each area, and this does not mean that it has to be expensive or large fittings. An elegant lamp in a dark corner can be just the thing to give your kitchen the extra lift that it needs. You should also make sure that you have enough light in the areas where focus is needed. For example, over the sink, as well as areas where you prepare and present food. This means that the oven and the main counter top will need to have good lighting. Be sure to keep this in mind throughout your remodeling project.

Combine both of the above with perfectly positioned halogen ceiling lights, directed to the most commonly used areas. This provided us with a safe and well-lit environment around the stove and above the sink and serving areas. The kitchen lighting fixtures used have become a vital addition to our kitchen that we hope will provide satisfaction to our family for many years to come.

Down Lighting - Down lighting is energy efficient and consists of small aperture cans in the ceiling. They can produce a longer lamp life, minimize glare and produce a bright crisp light.

You can install accent lights inside cabinets (even better if they are glass), put on some spotlights to highlight a photo or an interesting detail. To add some fizz to your kitchen, consider installing dim lights under the toe-kick. It will make your cabinets seem to float and give off a great accent lighting.

This type of kitchen light comes in mini track systems, slender strips, surface mounted, or small recessed disks known as pucks. Under cabinet fixtures are typically installed under wall cabinets to supply task lighting by illuminating work surfaces and counters without projecting shadows. They can also be installed inside cabinets that have glass fronts.
