Installing lighting on cabinets isn’t just a practical improvement. It can make the whole room glow, especially if you take a multi-directional approach. This kitchen features uplighting from energy-efficient LED tape on the top cabinets, and task lighting from LED under-cabinet fixtures on the bottom cabinet, both from Kichler. Kichler recommends dimmable task lighting for the kitchen so that you can make it as bright as necessary for doing prep work but dial it down for evening mood-setting.
Add color and light to your kitchen with pendants and decorative vases on the island. This island, by designers Cate Dunning and Lathem Gordon of GordonDunning, uses hydrangeas and greenery in blue and white china vases to add color to the mostly white kitchen. The greenery on the island accentuates the small pops of green in the background, while the Kichler Everly Pendant creates a spotlight for the arrangement.
