If you kitchen has an island or breakfast bar, consider hanging pendant lights above it. Pendant lighting not only adds style to the space, it can also help anchor a kitchen island so it feels more deliberate in an open-concept home. Small, disc-like puck lights are easy to install almost anywhere you need added illumination, from under cabinets to inside deep drawers or in dark corners of the pantry.
Recessed lights are installed into an opening in the ceiling so they don’t stick out at all. For barely-there recessed kitchen lights, you should consider the Lithonia Lighting 4 inch Matte White Recessed Baffle Integrated LED Lighting Kit, which comes with everything you need to light up your home.
One of the most important parts of the kitchen design process is deciding how to light the room. Due to the multifunctional nature of the kitchen, the lighting used plays a huge part and can make or break the space, so it needs to be just right. Ideally, kitchen lighting should allow you to prepare food with ease, but also have the ability to create an inviting atmosphere for entertaining guests. In other words, the lighting should be just as versatile as the room itself.
