The type of overhead lighting you install has the potential to define your kitchen style. To keep your cooking space chic, consider modern kitchen ceiling lights for a refreshing upgrade.

Full Color Light Strips 

Line your bar area or open shelving with our Full Color Light Strips. You can adjust them to match millions of different colors, like vibrant fuchsia or practical white. They’re also a great option for kitchen island lighting—add them under counters and cabinets for a clear path to midnight snacks.  

LED+ Speaker bulbs 

If you like to multitask while meal prepping, add LED+ Speaker bulbs to your space. These Bluetooth-enabled lights also let you stream music, podcasts, or news through a high-quality sound system. For an at-home culinary class experience, connect and play your favorite recipe tutorial while you cook! Link several for surround sound or stick with one for a lower-key listening session. LED kitchen lighting has never sounded so good!  

Grow Light

Modern spaces are all about sustainability. Show off your dedication to going green with an LED Grow Light, perfect for keeping houseplants and indoor gardens at peak freshness. Supplement your cooking with flavorful, home-grown ingredients, or liven up the heart of your home with gorgeous foliage and bright flowers. No matter how you set up your greenspace, the natural air filtration and deep earthy colors keep your kitchen looking modern. And with the help of our Grow Light, your plant pets will thrive.


For extra glean on stunning granite countertops, downlighting can offer a soft, subtle glow to food prep spaces. Downlights cast their glow directly below where they are installed for a focused illumination that adds drama without sacrificing functionality. Our Wafer Smart LED Downlights provide an exciting opportunity for sleek lighting with full color capability to transform your space for any occasion. Another beautiful option—adding downlights above your kitchen table for a special spotlight on family gathering.
