What is the best lighting for a kitchen?

Kitchen lighting can be easily overlooked. As a space, the kitchen is predominantly a functional space, requiring brighter task lighting and it is easy to forget the subtleties of layering lighting in a space we do not always associate with relaxing. 

Getting your kitchen lighting ideas right, however, can create a room that is perfect for both cooking and entertaining guests with a relaxing late-night drink – especially as kitchen ideas continue to dominate as one of the most multi-purpose rooms in our homes.
