Your Kitchen, Illuminated

The kitchen is one of the best places to use lighting in layers. You might have a ceiling or pendant light over an island for ambient light, recessed lights in front of the upper cabinets to illuminate your work surfaces, and under-cabinet lighting to fill in shadows on the countertops.

Lighting tips: Position the recessed lights so they illuminate the counter in front of you -- if they’re behind you, they’ll cast a shadow over your work.

Bear in mind that glare can be a problem with marble and other highly reflective countertops.
