The kitchen can be the busiest room in the house, especially if it includes the dining area. Lighting can be one of the more important design elements of the kitchen. The amount of lighting required will depend on the size and layout of the kitchen and its various elements may require only a central ceiling light, with perhaps one or two focus lights at select locations. More complex kitchens will need a blend of general, focus and accent lighting.

General lighting can consist of a decorative chandelier or with recessed lighting. It is better to use chandeliers with semi-transparent glass instead of fabric shades for easier cleaning. Recessed lights are best places around the perimeter of the kitchen to illuminate all spaces.
