What kind of light should I hang over the sink?

Lighting the Kitchen Sink

The kitchen sink is a prime example of task lighting. Kitchen lighting is important all over, but if you can't see whether the dishes are clean, the result could be wasted effort and unpleasant eating experiences.

Many homes have a "tube" light over the sink. These fluorescent kitchen lights provide excellent task lighting and require less power than incandescents.

If you have the room and want something a little more dramatic, a pendant mini-chandelier can provide a decorative touch. Choose your fixture with the style of the sink and cabinets in mind.
