Finding new kitchen lights.

I need to find new lights for kitchen. They are not hanging directly over any thing, I have no clue what I should do.

Yes, a pendant light isn't appropriate if it's not suspended over a countertop.
For your traditional kitchen, what about some traditional schoolhouse lights? You can get them in a semi-flushmount for your main kitchen area and pendant variety for over the sink or counters.

Something like these?

And you've got two of them!!! Try a pair of semi-flush drum lights for an up to date look without hanging over nothing.

What is your motivation for replacing them? More light? Trendier fashion? Getting in the way? Different traditional style or finish? Energy efficiency? Or just tired of them?

Hi, Teresa! You've got some great ideas here, and we'd also like to suggest a pair of full (rather than semi-) flush mount ceiling lights (http://www.atgstores.com/flush-mount-ceiling-lights_448.html?linkLoc=topnav). We've chosen a few we think may look nice given your current decor and style, but there are thousands of choices. We hope this helps and wish you luck!

It takes an electrician to relocate lights. Consult several, ask how they would do what you want, get several bids. Will they repair the holes they leave in the ceiling where they took out lights? If not, you'll have to consult another craftsman.

It's hard to tell where you might already have ceiling fixtures from the one photo. You may not have to relocate anything, but can't tell.

Go with what you like. Trust yourself. You're the one living with it.

How about just installing can lights throughout the ceiling?

Darzy's idea is great, I also like deco's Axis Semi Mount Flush. Whatever you decide, stay away from the boob light! [houzz=

How about just shortening the chains and making the ones you have flush mounted?

How about track lights?

I like the new version of the track light--monorails with spots. New transformers within the canopies make for easy installation of the low voltage system. You can run the monorail anywhere on the ceiling--and you can bend it or make square corners. Love the versatility.

I solved this problem in my kitchen by using the bendable track lighting. There was a ceiling fan in the middle of the room and I wanted lighting over my island without having to hire an electrician and patching the middle of the ceiling where the current electrical connection was. You can direct the light wherever you want with this type of lighting.
