At Accent Lighting in Wichita, we love the holidays, and while we know that there’s still a week left before September is over, the fall and winter festivities will be here before you know it. When it comes to entertaining during the holidays, perhaps no room gets used more than the kitchen. We can help you discover the latest in kitchen lighting trends, so no matter what type of updates you want to make, you can find the right fixtures for every spot. Visit our showroom today to get started!

Update Your Ambient Fixtures

Ambient lighting refers to the general illumination in a space, and in the kitchen, this light often comes from a central overhead fixture and perhaps some recessed lights. When it comes to the central fixture, you want it to add to the room’s atmosphere, not detract from it. If there’s still an old flush-mount light on the ceiling, or perhaps an outdated ceiling fan, then replace it with a modern fixture that has the look you want. For the recessed lights, you can talk to one of our expert staff members about replacing those old halogen bulbs with an LED retrofit kit.

New Island Fixtures

The kitchen island can often be the center of your holiday gatherings. You might use it as a serving area, and people are often apt to belly up to the bar on one of the stools when their favorite holiday drink is being made. When it comes to lighting your island, pendants are the ideal choice. If you currently have a single fixture with multiple bulbs, then consider replacing it with individual lights that hang from the ceiling (or vice versa). Perhaps you have an island light that has a shade or covering on it, and you’d rather have more exposed lighting that illuminates the island’s countertop. If that’s the case, then we’d love to help you find the perfect fixture.

Under Cabinet Lights

The holidays also mean lots of food prep, especially if you’re the one hosting the various celebrations. If your kitchen doesn’t have under cabinet lighting, then the biggest favor you can do for yourself is to add them. These fixtures aren’t big or cumbersome, and they can be integrated underneath your cabinets with ease. You’ll want to place them on their own switch, and they’ll prove very useful as task lighting while you’re getting those holiday meals ready. They can also be left on as accent lighting when the overhead fixtures are off!
