THE LIGHT IN THE KITCHENUse in the kitchen local lighting. As a rule our kitchens are covered the only light source is the ceiling or a chandelier hanging somewhere near the ceiling, in the middle.

Most often, this lamp General purpose lights no matter Desk — when the hostess is preparing lunch, she closes herself from the world of the working area on the plate.

Inconvenient such a lamp and in that case, when the family gathers at the dinner table (usually standing at the window or wall) — it illuminates not the table, and the center of the kitchen.

Now that should take care of the hostess to provide her a more comfortable illumination intensity. It will have to buy a few fluorescent lamps and install them on the lower planes of the wall cabinets.
