Basics: Kitchen Light Fixtures
Finding the right combination for your kitchen can be confusing. Let us help you choose the best fixtures for your space.
Small and discreet, recessed downlights are the most popular choice for kitchens because they can handle the gamut of lighting challenges -- general illumination as well as light for particular activities. (In most kitchens, you’ll want other sources, too, at least to fill the shadows.)
Configure them to your needs with modular accessories: baffles, lenses, and louvers to shape light; trim rings to cover the rough edges of the fixture housing the ceiling hole. You can even update existing fixtures by switching your current trims for a new style or finish.
Puck lights are mini recessed fixtures. Use them to light display cabinets or niches, mount them under cabinets to brighten work areas, or install them above cabinets to subtly wash upper walls with light.
