Light for over kitchen sink (pictures)?

lpaltaJuly 27, 2014

The light over our kitchen sink is behind a face board. It is rectangular and semi flush mount. It is constantly filling with lady bugs and/or flies. We are elderly and have a terrible time in taking down and cleaning to get rid of the little pests. Any suggestions and or pictures for lighting would be greatly appreciated.

Pendant light?

I asked a short time ago and got no response. ::

I ended up just having them put a 4" recessed LED like the rest of them in their kitchen. Ours is visible. I thought I might like to highlight that it's different than the other circuit of 6 lights. I got a different 'insert' with nickel trim instead of white. I had ordered it. It's come in. I'm not sure yet if it's worth trying to change it out. I'll wait til most of the other elements of the kitchen come together.

I'd be happy to post a pic, but it's not that exciting. It's just a 4" recessed light with white trim at this point.

Lucy, how about a small pendant light? They are my personal favorite.
Home Depot has a "kit" super simple to swap out and you can snip the "cord" it hangs from to whatever length you need and then pick the shade from a dozen or so styles off the shelf or even more online.
It also takes a regular bulb that just screws in.
