I hope you know what I am talking about and where to buy the fixture. thank you. Sharon Stover

Contractor's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?

We haven't signed the contract with the contractor yet so it will be at least 3 weeks.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

No, the contractor has a electrician.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

No thank you just the light fixture

Never Change a Bulb Again with Integrated Led Light Fixtures...

Changing a lamp bulb is no sweat, but it can be a total hassle when a light bulb burns out in a hard-to-reach lighting fixture in your home. Replacing the bulb can involve a hair-raising climb to the top of a ladder if the fixture is on a high ceiling or above your stairs. But now, thanks to long-lasting LED lights, you can forget what it’s like to change a bulb.

LED technology is now being integrated right into light fixtures, so you’ll never have to install or change a bulb in those fixtures again – because there isn’t even a bulb to change! And prices for these fixtures have dropped dramatically. For example, right now at The Home Depot, you can get a two-pack of Brushed Nickel LED Flush Mounts from Commercial Electric for $34.97.

Was this what you were looking for? LED lighting comes in many styles and forms, and your electrician can help you decide what is best for your kitchen. You might also consider tube lighting, which is basically a skylight only tube shaped. Of course this won't work too well at night, but during the daytime it adds a lot of natural light inside the home.
