You can use lighting to accent kitchen areas as focal points to add drama to your decorating scheme.
Depending on the size of your kitchen you may be able to work in a nice little vignette with a table lamp on a little
table and a display of accessories that compliment your decorating theme. Even if your kitchen is too small to allow for a
table, you can still use accent lighting in many ways.
Use Adjustable lights to highlight plants, wall décor or a special area of the room.
Don't use glaringly bright lights for accent lighting in kitchen decorating, but a little dimmer light pointed
directly at the object you want to highlight.
If you have a nice painting or print on the wall or a display of colorful plates, this might make a nice focal point.
Any area that has an interesting architectural feature could also be a good place to highlight.
If you have a funky theme in your kitchen you might want to think about using a string of theme patio lights to add interest.
You know, the ones with different shapes like chili peppers and palm trees.
You could string them along your windows or cabinets for an interesting fun look.
And don't forget about those little white Christmas lights - they look great strung around a plant or weaved into some of the
greenery on top of your cabinets.
Use accent lighting in kitchen cabinets to add drama and create some lighting for finding your way around the kitchen in the
middle of the night. If your cabinets do not go all the way to the ceiling, you can have lights on the tops of the cabinets
pointing up - use them to highlight your decorations on the tops of the cabinets.
If you have cabinets that have glass fronts or stained glass, think about lighting the insides of the cabinets.
