The highly-rated Hampton Bar Track Lighting has four adjustable light heads that fit 50-watt GU10-16 halogen bulbs (included). These moveable fixtures make it easy to light up different parts of your kitchen, and the light’s brushed steel finish will complement contemporary decor. The Hampton Bar light is compatible with certain light dimmers, and the unit’s line-voltage design makes it easy to install directly to a junction box.
Surface-mounted light fixtures were the standard choice for most general kitchen lighting from the early 20th century into the 1980s. That‘s when recessed fixtures first became widely available, and took the lead for a couple of decades. Then, with a growing awareness of the greater efficiency of a closed ceiling plus the design of more attractive units, surface light fixtures started to make a comeback.
If a single ceiling light isn’t cutting it in your kitchen, track lighting is an excellent solution. With a single ceiling junction box, you can install a track light system that will allow you to direct light wherever you need it most. There are few lighting options that have a more dramatic, unexpected impact on your kitchen than swapping out a simple ceiling lamp for a chandelier. Don’t be afraid to go with something fancy, even in the kitchen. The simple, functional elements of your kitchen will easily balance out an elaborate chandelier.
