Since your kitchen is used for much more than just eating, you should consider layering your lighting (which is using more than one type of lighting design) in order to ensure you have the light you need for your workspace.

However, wall lighting can add valuable light to corners and nooks that will provide you much enjoyment. Wall sconces are great accent lights that can make these corners pleasant.
