Simple to Statement

Light fixtures come in so many sizes, colors, shapes, and materials. The possibilities are nearly endless for whatever vision you see for your Chevy Chase kitchen design. Whether you choose a decorative or minimal fixture, it can instantly bring your kitchen design together to create a unique look. Do you have parts of your kitchen that you’re proud to show off, like a luxurious set of custom cabinets or an ornately carved wood range hood? A minimalist bulb pendant shines plenty of light without competing for attention. Perhaps you’re looking for something with more of a statement. Add some irreplaceable elegance you can only get from a chandelier. There are hundreds of traditional and modern styles to choose from in today’s market.

Task Lights

Tasks lighting, as the name would suggest, serves a greater functional purpose to help with your kitchen tasks. These fixtures aim to cast more light over essential worktop areas throughout the kitchen. For many kitchens, you’ll notice pendant lights affixed over kitchen islands, sinks, and other countertop areas. While these working lights serve their practical purpose, by no means do these lights need to be stripped down, utilitarian design. Decorative lampshades, glass covers, and sculpted metal details make these fixtures a beautiful accent to your Chevy Chase kitchen design.

Cabinet Lighting

Of course, we can’t forget to mention the splendor of lighting designed around custom cabinets. Undercabinet lights act as excellent task lights as well and draw attention to your backsplash and countertops. Over-cabinet lights add more ambient lighting to the kitchen space, similar to how sconces are more ornamental. If your Chevy Chase kitchen design makes use of glass-front cabinets, inner cabinet lights add plenty of aesthetic appeal. The lit-from-within effect of these lights lends another beautiful detail to your kitchen design.
