When designing your kitchen, it’s important to take into consideration the kind of ambiance you want to create. In addition to the cabinetry, materials, and paint color, there’s another aspect of your kitchen design that you may not have considered: the lighting.

However, if you’re like most people, you probably don’t know much about the intricacies of lighting.
