Recessed lighting is tops and track lighting barely registers on the popularity meter, according to a National Kitchen & Bath Association survey of its members on customers’ preferences.

The sampling of NKBA members (certified kitchen and bath designers, dealers, retailers and manufacturers) also says halogen and incandescent lights are about equally popular in kitchens (37% versus 35%, respectively), while incandescent leads in baths (45%). Fluorescent garners only about 15% in each.
