    I recall living in an apartment that has this type of installation in the kitchen. The usual set up is that the plastic lens has yellowed over the years and the fluorescent light bulb was not bright enough to light up the space. Overall giving a dark and dull environment to cook.

    If you want to do a simple improvement our recommendation is to simply change the boring flat plastic panels to a more decorative Louver Lens:

    This special louver lens has a prismatic flat lens attached above it so that when people look up, you do not see the fluorescent light bulbs. They are usually in 2x4 sizes, but the vendor that we carry can cut the louver to size.

    I would also recommend to change the fluorescent tubes to a much higher color temperature and higher CRI. I like my kitchen to be bright, so I am biased to recommend to use 5000K with an 85 CRI fluorescent tubes.
