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.

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.

• 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.

On the other end, another common mistake we all do is over-lighting and result is, the kitchen gets too hot. The goal here is to have moderate, even lighting and more importantly blends of different lightings. For example, you just can’t keep on adding recessed lights for the sake of visual look, instead of mixing various lighting types.

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.

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.

When you consider placing the switches, you should have a switch for each type of kitchen lighting - one for the general, another for the task- and one for your accent lights. You can also segregate lighting by 'geography': the switch for the worktop's task light should be near to the worktop. For the pendants above the kitchen island you should have a switch near the island.
