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.

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.

You don't need to put more than 4-5 switches to an average sized kitchen; however, just think through what you do in your kitchen and what type of light you need for which activity. Then group them together and assign a switch for it.

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.

The kitchen lighting fixtures over the breakfast table in our kitchen, we found to be an essential part of our kitchen planning, as different types of lighting fixtures for this amazingly useful space were required. We took more time on this part of the room and chose carefully, although it was a little tempting to simply add these later, this has now become such a special place for us. The kitchen lighting fixtures that we installed provide a nice warm glow that fans out evenly, across our table space, yet synchronizes perfectly with the rest of our beautiful kitchen.

First and foremost question you need to ask while design your kitchen lighting is how much you are ready to spend. After all the light fixtures do cost something – and this are not only the wires and switches but also the type of light fixtures, shades and bulbs. Next question that should come in your mind is whether you have a kitchen lighting plan. A good plan will surely blend lighting into the architectural and decorative details of the room. A plan will help you out it investing wisely into kitchen lighting needs. If you want to go for a gradual lighting design process seeing you don't have enough budget say for example for a series of pendants over the center island or a glass chandelier at least install enough junction boxes The fixtures can then be purchased at a later date and easily added to the kitchen lighting needs. After determining the budget and a plan, you need to think about the space area of your kitchen. This is important in determining the amount of lighting required and in which areas of the kitchen need specific lighting. One also needs to consider whether the room apart from needing single central light, how many other multiple lighting options may be needed. This is determined by the area or space of the room, all the activities that are place in the kitchen and are important, as well as the placement of all interior objects such as the cooking range, counter top and the kitchen-cum-dining table if present. For example, small kitchens may require only a central ceiling pendant light and some recessed task lighting tucked under a cabinet. More elaborate kitchens will demand a blend of general, task and accent lighting.

The other use of this type of fixtures is mood and accent lighting. You can use small bottom pendant lights for mood lights. Wall sconces also set a certain mood. Accent lights can bathe a favorite painting or figurine in illumination.

Also known as can lights, this type of kitchen lighting fixture is located within the ceiling instead of being attached to or hanging from the ceiling. This type of kitchen fixture is a perfect choice for those who prefer unobtrusive to decorative lighting. Recessed lighting can provide task, accent, or general kitchen lighting.
