If your kitchen has open shelves, add LED strip lights or puck lights to the back or underneath the shelves. This will create light to highlight objects on the shelves. When choosing your fixtures, think about the color of your kitchen. Since white reflects light, if you have a lot of white in your kitchen you may be able to lower the wattage of bulbs. But those with darker kitchen lighting may need more wattage.
If there’s one place the worlds of form and function seamlessly meet it’s in the kitchen. And upgrading the lighting is an way to add a fresh dose of style and substance to the space. Even if you don’t have a major kitchen remodel in your future, a simple lighting swap — from adding some architectural track lighting to installing a dramatic chandelier — might be all it takes to upgrade the entire kitchen. Lighting is a lot like painting in that way: it can be an inexpensive, but impressive way to transform the room in a single afternoon.
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.
