n almost every room of the house, we use both general lighting and task lighting. One room where many of us particularly want to provide both types of lighting is the kitchen. Task lighting is the lighting we use to clearly see something we are doing. Reading lamps and desk lamps are two examples.
Reviewers say these pendant lights look very luxe, yet come at an unbeatable price. Several people note they use the Globe Electric Angelica Pendants over their islands, sinks and counters, and many also say the industrial style of the lights is perfect to match contemporary or farmhouse decor.
Surface-mounted light fixtures were the standard choice for most general kitchen lighting from the early 20th century into the 1980s. That‘s when recessed fixtures first became widely available, and took the lead for a couple of decades. Then, with a growing awareness of the greater efficiency of a closed ceiling plus the design of more attractive units, surface light fixtures started to make a comeback.
In order to do that, however, it's important to know what the different types of kitchen lighting are and how they are typically implemented into the design of a kitchen.
