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.
Have a space that’s always dark, such as the back of a cabinet or pantry? Install a motion sensor that will activate a puck or LED light when the door is opened. This will help you find that pot you need, or that spice that’s hard to see in the dark cabinet. If you have recessed can lights and want an update, try recessed can converters, which are as easy as screwing in a lightbulb. This will allow you to add stylish pendants for a simple kitchen lighting makeover.
Pendant lights are really a specialized form of surface lights. Their great advantage is that they bring the light closer to the areas where you need good visibility. For that reason, they can also be used to provide task lighting. The judicious installation of pendant lights can provide double service, by lighting both a work island and the area around it, for example.
It does not matter if you get a custom design or pre-made fluorescent diffuse panel design, they are both easy to install. Decorative panels for fluorescent kitchen light fixtures is less expensive than getting granite counter tops, putting in new tile and replacing the cabinets. A kitchen enhancement that is under $100 that adds so much to the space is a rare find take advantage of these benefits by contacting a professional decorative fluorescent‐light diffuse manufacturer.
Kitchen updates are typically very costly and require a lot of work. If a fluorescent light fixture is located in the‐kitchen area, a quick facelift could be just what you need to get an instant update to your kitchen space. The best part about this addition is the affordably.
