There are four basic types of kitchen lightings that are available. They are the accent, ambient, task and the decorative lighting. In order to make the kitchen utilizable, task kitchen lighting is used. This lighting is perfect for chopping vegetables with a sharp knife or reading your favorite recipe. The appropriate location of task lighting is between the working area and the person running the kitchen.
Do you still have fluorescent lighting in your kitchen - well if you want the latest in kitchen design - and to know what is hot, what is not - fluorescent lighting is definitely not. One long globe casting a harsh light over the kitchen was never an idea that combined style with utility - it's not something you use because it's beautiful - it's simply utilitarian. The latest in kitchen design is LED's (light-emitting diodes) which use less than half the electricity of fluorescents and can last 10 times as long. As for what is hot in kitchen design - the newest buzz is on 'accent lighting', and layered kitchen lighting. Chandeliers and pendants are as in as you can get for task lighting, along with lighting for cabinets. These do the job, and add style and ambiance to your kitchen. When it comes to lighting, fluorescents are so last century!
A modern house should have sleeker, modern looking kitchen cabinets. Some people like the eclectic look, and have the know how to pull it off, but in most instances its best to keep a consistent look and feel throughout the house.
