Adding wall sconces for kitchen lighting is a unique way to showcase what makes your kitchen light special, such as highlighting a piece of artwork. And sconces can also help with ambient light. Try low-voltage fixtures for your kitchen light wall sconces. Instead of one main kitchen light, try three identical hanging pendant fixtures over the center of the kitchen. Pendants come in a variety of styles from classic to modern, and bulbs of various wattage can be used, depending on the amount of kitchen lighting you need.
A recessed light housing that will be in an attic needs to be both airtight (AT) and insulation compatible (IC), so that it will not serve as an exhaust vent for your home‘s warm air during heating season, and will not become hot enough, on its outer surface, to damage any insulation that comes in contact with it. Recessed lighting fixtures that are both AT and IC are more expensive than similar fixtures that are not.
Under cabinet lighting is a great way to brighten up any dark spaces along the kitchen counter without creating shadows. It’s important to have sufficient task lighting in the kitchen, and under cabinet lighting creates a space that’s well-equipped for food preparation.
