Undercabinet lighting will be important in lighting your kitchen countertops. You can also use recessed lights and track lights with small heads. Be sure that the recessed lights are placed where they are useful, which in the case of wall cabinets is 18" out from the wall if there are upper cabinets. You want to make sure that when you are standing at the counter that the lights will shine on the countertop and not on the back of your head.

Lighting over an island is also necessary but you probably don't have one in a small kitchen.
