Kitchen Island Lighting
Island tables are simply a must-have in any modern kitchen. These convenient spaces are great for food preparation, laying out a buffet, or even having your kids do their homework. Finding the right kitchen island light fixtures will make accomplishing tasks that much easier.
Generally speaking, you’ll want about 35-50 lumens of light per square foot of the island underneath it (i.e. a 10 square foot island would need around 350 to 500 lumens of light).

Kitchen Recessed Ceiling Lighting
Recessed lighting plays a vital role in providing both task and general lighting, especially where your hanging ceiling lights leave a gap. These lights are typically installed around five to six feet apart. However, you can create a more concentrated cluster over areas where specific kitchen tasks need to be performed.
Ceiling lights also come in directional models which allow you to adjust the beam to better illuminate areas where you work or if you simply have something you want to display.

We love using wall sconces in kitchens to fill in any gaps left by your ceiling lights. Sconces are great because they allow you to really show forth your aesthetic sense with a fixture that’s minimally intrusive yet stylish.
Line your main lighting sources, your sconces can also be connected to a dimmer in order to enhance the mood and create the perfect lighting atmosphere.

Kitchen Cabinet & Undercabinet Lighting
When it comes to task lighting in the kitchen, one of the most helpful modern innovations is installing undercabinet lighting. These lights help to brighten spaces that have been darkened by your cabinets as they block the ambient lighting sources coming from your ceiling. You can also places lighting inside your cabinet to highlight beautiful glassware.
This type of lighting comes in strips, pucks, or even rope. Be sure to check whether or not these installing new fixtures will require the help of an electrician or not.
