Indoor lighting comes in many designs which open up an array of options. For a small kitchen, track lighting may be the way to go. Install dimmable track lighting and you can control not only the lighting but the mood of the room also. Recessed lighting is used on modern kitchens, but if your home is older you may have those retro fluorescent bulbs watching as you cook. There’s nothing wrong with that. The bulbs last a very long time and your work space is definitely bright. Most kitchens today have an island in the middle which requires some extra decorative lighting such as pendant lighting. Task lighting, however, is for the home chef that needs special lighting for every aspect of cooking. There is lighting over the stove, over the island and underneath the cabinets to light the countertops, all which aid in all areas of food preparation.
