A standout lighting effect is a perfect way to enliven a dull or narrow pantry area. Strategically placed mood lighting can also append the wow factor of your already fabulous kitchen. No matter how you want to use accent lighting in your kitchen, it is surely worth the effort and some of your trouble if effectively utilized. There are some functional areas in your kitchen that definitely needs a splash of light like a working countertop or ledges that displays your spices. Decorative areas such as your collection of antique plate ceramics and glassware, even an artwork can also benefit for some well-deserved spotlight.

Although each fixture may have its own specific purpose, sometimes you can substitute one from another especially if installed discretely. One good example of this scenario is installing a spotlight instead of a tubular or LED light under your wall mounted cupboard or inside the cabinet with glass doors. This can come in handy in cases that a limited space is available to accommodate the light fixture.
