The main circuit types in this kitchen electrical and lighting layout are small appliances, general lighting, and permanent (also known as large) appliances—the broad lighting circuit powers the entire lighting system in the room. In addition, at the room's entrance, every plan should include a circuit with at least one switch-controlled light. A lighting circuit is required in every kitchen to illuminate the cooking area. Canister lights, under-cabinet lights, strip lights, and ceiling fixtures require a 15-amp, 120/125-volt dedicated circuit.
