Get a well-lit kitchen with undercabinet task lighting. Connect the fixtures to a dimmer switch, as shown here, and you also have the key to dramatic accent lighting or a night light for midnight snackers. Ikea has some great low-power LED light strips I used for under cabinet lights. You can install under-cabinet light fixtures that plug into your outlet, but hiding the electrical cord can be difficult and unsightly. However, my difficulty is most of these LED under cabinet light solutions on Amazon seem to be assuming that you have one set of cabinets, where you can link all of your lights in a perfect row, and one plug that you will then plug everything into. Unless you can find a direct-wire LED solution, I think it will be messier than you want.
