My older home's kitchen is wired for a single, flush-mount ceiling fixture that happens to be directly over the kitchen sink. Several years ago, I purchased an inexpensive chain-light which allowed me to center the fixture rather than light just one section. It too, however, came with limitations due to the inflexibility of the globes. I originally looked at rail lighting, which I would have preferred, except I didn't care for the low wattage restrictions. My kitchen is very dark with no natural light coming in anywhere. I need plenty of bright light. This fixture has solved all of my problems. It uses regular medium screw bulbs which can be purchased in either incandescent or fluorescent, allowing me to have plenty of bright light. The main feature of this fixture is the flexibility, enabling the purchaser to point the individual globes in whatever direction suits their needs. Also, they do flare outward rather than point straight down as my old fixture, spreading the light much better. It has solved all of my problems, and since it was wired exactly like my old fixture, change-out was a breeze. Although lightweight and inexpensive, this was the only light fixture that met all of my needs. I would have loved to replace my fixture with a "top-quality" fixture costing hundreds of dollars, but when it was all said and done, none of them offered the features I require.
