What do you use the light above the sink for? It was something I had to have at the time when we redid our kitchen but I never use it. Is it just for show?

I use it in the morning before I turn all the lights on

Maybe leave on at night when you have company or go away for the evening. I feel many fixtures are used for decorative purposes and no necessarily functional

I’m envious—our kitchen doesn’t have a sink light and it is so dark when doing dishes!

To see? Lol, I think just because people are different in the amount and color of lighting they’re most comfortable with. Me, I want every inch bright bright white.

Thats the strangest light placement I’ve seen. Don’t have that in many US kitchens. I use my oven hood as nightlight or refrigerator water dispenser has one too

My kitchen looks exactly like this and I always wondered what a pendant light would look like there. Now I know!

I use it while doing dishes and when I don’t want all the other lights in the kitchen on.

I don’t have one above my sink and I miss it. It’s easier to see when doing the dishes or washing vegetables.

Kind of a night light. Late at night when I don’t want the huge kitchen light on. Use ours every night.

If you ever wash dishes by hand you need it

We had one in my old house. It was handy since there was only 2 pot lights in the kitchen. This light helped w seeing things around the sink

I have it on whenever I’m working in the sink. It’s pretty much on all the time actually. I love the lighting it gives the kitchen at night without having all the other lights on.

To see when it’s dark? LOL – no we use ours as a night light, or when we’re doing the dishes or cooking dinner as an added light (the other lights in our kitchen aren’t that bright so it helps bring more into the room).

I have a low watt bulb in mine. Ambient night light/ indirect front door light through the window. (Like a bat signal for certain house guests, but not open door company)

Maybe it’s that shade. Try it with one that keeps the light out of your eyes and on the sink. I wouldn’t be without mine. I love having that light shine right onto my work without me casting shadows on it from the lighting behind me.

It’s so you can see while washing dishes, etc. Sometimes I have to turn mine on if I don’t want the main light on.

I use it for extra kitchen lighting, while I’m washing dishes, we sometimes leave it on at night as a security light
