Lights & cabinets.

Light fixtures installed inside, below or above cupboards and cabinets are a great way to let subtle light enhance design features, provide task lighting and showcase specific items. In the image above, the lights placed within the cabinets beautifully complement the straight lines of this modern kitchen design.
