Adding decorative and under cabinet lighting in the kitchen allows for a well-lit space to cook and entertain.

It’s that time of year again. Spring is a time for change and new beginnings and the warm weather is giving homeowners a gentle push to do more around the house.
A quick economic way to remodel a home on a tight budget is to consider changing out some lighting fixtures. A good place to start is the kitchen, the center of family life and one of the busiest rooms in the house.
"By adding pendants, a decorative ceiling fixture or under cabinet lighting, homeowners can create ambiance and a well-lit space to cook and entertain," said Benson Littman, co-owner of Littman Bros. a family-owned business since 1979.
A rule of thumb for general kitchen lighting is to include a combination of general, task and accent lighting. This can be achieved through a variety of ways including recessed lighting, a track or rail system, chandeliers, or under cabinet lighting. Other tips include:
- Place recessed lighting around the perimeter of the room away from the wall.
- Add some glamour to the kitchen by adding chandeliers to other lighting in the room
- Illuminate countertops with under cabinet lighting. Place the under cabinet fixtures at the front of the cabinet so the light will be distributed evenly over the area below. Additionally, add a dimmer to your under cabinet lighting. This will add depth, dramatic flair and save energy as well.
As one of the top lighting showrooms in the country with a renowned online presence, Littman Bros works on a daily basis with manufacturers such as Cyan Design, Fine Art Lamps, Hinkley Lighting, Holtkotter International, Hubbardton Forge, Kichler Lighting, George Kovacs, Schonbek Lighting, Sea Gull Lighting, and Tech Lighting
