Recessed lights disappear into the ceiling and help preserve a sense of openness and space. Many people also prefer them because they seem to need less cleaning. They might be a good choice for those reasons, particularly if your kitchen is a finished room. Recessed lights, however, require enough open space above the ceiling for the housing to be fitted in. This means that the ceiling joists limit the locations where you can install a recessed light.
Decide where you want your guests to look by choosing a focal point and illuminating it. Don‘t direct the eye toward a sink area, for instance, where visitors might get a view of your dirty dishes. Here, the Heirloom Pendant is used to light a charming prep area to the side of the kitchen.
If your kitchen has an unfinished, insulated attic above it, the good news is that you can use the less expensive and easier-to-install recessed lights that are made to be used in new construction. The bad news is that there are additional challenges to installing these fixtures.
Whenever choosing a light for your own kitchen take your moment and find a light which will fit the space that your are attempting to light. You do not want to have got a light that is to above powering. But at the similar time you do not want a light that is actually undersized. One critical design aspect with lighting is that you desire it to be recognized but you really don't want it to be the overall focal stage of your own kitchen.
