The lighting has a large effect on the kitchen. Bright light is needed in every kitchen so the cook is able to see what he/ she is doing. There are three types of lighting that enhance the kitchen for more than just food preparation, these days kitchens are used for much more like entertainment. Hanging, down and pendants. These are places in every kitchen that catch the eye and make working easier. Hanging lights go mainly over islands and eat in kitchens. Down lights illuminate the whole room and affect the shadows and glares. These work very well in circular rooms. Down lights are commonly used as under-cabinet lighting and they also work very well in circular rooms. Pendants provide lighting at a lower level to bring a warm feel to the room. These mainly go above islands or table tops.
