Lighting changes can bring new life to your kitchen

Make your ordinary kitchen look extraordinary with these simple lighting changes.

• Install dimmers on all your lights. This allows you to adjust light levels, create drama, reduce energy costs and extend bulb life.

• Install a new island light, rail system or multiple minipendants over the counter or island.

• If you have recessed lighting, updating the trims and bulbs can have a big impact on the lighting effect in your kitchen.

• Installing linear light sources under and over your cabinets as well as under toe kicks along the floor can make the kitchen appear bigger and make your backsplash, counters and floors really pop.
