As a Bay Area resident, you like to fancy yourself as being on the cutting edge of home improvement technology. To that end, we’ve summarized three very cool new trends in kitchen lighting. Whether you’re embarking on a massive remodeling project of your Castro Valley condo or simply trying to extract extra utility from your current kitchen, you will find these lighting fixes bring some extra shine to your home.

1. Under cabinet lighting

Under cabinet lighting is a great way to create a kind of layered, textured ambiance to the room. It’s a very subtle effect. It’s also great because the lighting can be deployed for specific tasks. For instance, if you’re cutting up leeks and mincing garlic, deploy the under cabinet lighting to light up the prep work.

2. Pendants

Pendant lighting provides a subtle but dynamic way to tweak the room’s aesthetic. Pendants are also slightly more versatile than traditional island lights because the different pendants can overlap with one another and create a subtle but real ripple like effect.

3. Track lighting

If you can’t see what you’re doing in the kitchen, nick yourself with a knife or burn a sauce or soufflé. Track lighting is an ideal way to light up the dark, hard to illuminate corners and shadowy spots in the room. Track lighting will also provide another layer of ambiance to adjust to create cool, subtle effects.
