Kitchen lighting isn't just fluorescents anymore. There's a wide array of options, from xenon to puck to halogen lighting.
Make sure to select a dimmer with the correct wattage for specific lighting needs.
Task lighting doesn't have to be ugly. Sconces are one option that will help get the job done, and they're easy on the eyes.
Don't forget: safety first. Don't take shortcuts such as bypassing a remodeling box when wiring. And always turn off the power at the source.
