With so many activities happening in your kitchen, sufficient light is a must.  The most effective lighting for the kitchen involves four layers blended together: task, ambient, accent and decorative lighting. The result is a warm and inviting room that works with your other design elements to create a practical work space and entertainment area.  Consider these options when lighting your kitchen.

Recessed lights are perfect for ambient or general kitchen lighting.
