We just completed our kitchen remodel. We have several recessed lights; under and inside cabinet lighting; and decorative fixtures over the island. Over the sink is a skylight. There was not enough room for a recessed fixture because of the skylight. I am looking for options on lighting this area above the sink -there is a large window in front of the sink and cabinets on either side creating shadows and a dark spot. The job is done now - to go back and rework might be a problem. I need an aesthetically pleasing and practical solution.

I have been thinking on this one. I can only suggest that maybe some small recessed cans that use MR lamps can be used around the skylight. This is a recessed light yes, but they are very small and produce a lot of light. Call a lighting store and see if they can come out and take a look. This is usually a free service.
