Chandeliers are also known as suspension or chain-hung fixtures. Like ceiling fixtures, chandeliers are also hung from the ceiling. However, they require more space in addition to adding more pizzazz compared to regular ceiling fixtures. They provide general lighting and have at least two arms with down-lights or up-lights. They are most often used with formal dining rooms or dining tables.

For the sink, and countertops a combination of track or recessed lighting, and under cabinet lighting will be to achieve best results in lighting up the countertop and creating a work area that is well lit and free of shadows. Mount the lights as close to the back of the cabinets as possible to avoid creating glare and off the work surfaces. Try to select energy-efficient fluorescent fixtures that will cover at least two-thirds of the of the counter's length.

How to Choose Kitchen Lighting Fixtures
Charity Wiley Kitchen Table 2018-04-09 12:12:01
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.

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 it comes to kitchen lighting, the most common mistake is trying to light the entire room with one ceiling-mounted fixture. The result ends up visually overpowering everything in the kitchen space. Recessed lighting, if installed in a generic grid, isn't much better. A lot of people do it incorrectly, and they'll end up with too much light in some areas and shadows everywhere else
