Pendant lights come in a variety of shapes.

Adding distinctive lighting fixtures is an easy and fun way to put a little accent in your kitchen.

Here are some quick-change ideas from IKEA:

For less than $30, you can add ambiance to your dining room with a striking candle chandelier that accepts regular pillars or tea lights.

Pendant lights are also a great way to add personality to your kitchen. They can be hard-wired or plugged in and this model makes it easy to change the shade in a snap. Options include a rice paper lantern, artichoke-shaped shade, dome or regular shade in brushed aluminum or frosted glass.

A halogen track light system makes it easy to spotlight a specific spot. The lights can be adjusted to suit your needs whether it is task lighting over an island or a spotlight for a special cabinet. It comes with seven lights and can be installed vertically or horizontally.

Built-in undercabinet lighting can be costly so if you don't want to spare the expense go with a self-contained modular unit, available with halogen or fluorescent lighting.
