It will not be able to bring out the best features of the room. Ceiling lights should be laid out in soft lights that will not cast the room in a glaring glow considering that you are going to have wall lighting installed. There are many options for lighting up a home from the ceiling and therefore you should approach the market with an open mind.
The most common form of ceiling lighting is the basic dome light also know as a flush mount ceiling light. These are great for basic lighting of a small room. These do not provide much task lighting it is primarily used to for basic lighting needs. Most lighting manufactures have several sizes of these and the most common ones have anywhere from 1 to 3 light bulbs.
Another thing that you want to pay attention to is the rim around the fixture itself. This is a very subtle ring that is usually just made out of a plain metal color. If you want it to blend into your ceiling then paint it a white. You can also have really beautiful leaf details on it. This could also just be in a totally different metal color. As long as this metal color is drastically different than the rest of the brass or silver fixtures in your space it can still coordinate.
For general lighting, you may wish to use an ambient lighting, which lights the whole kitchen, on the form of a flush or drop fitting, depending on the height of the ceiling. For instance you can install a ceiling light over the bar or the table as this will create the mood of the room. It may also be a single pendant light or a group of three or four lights depending of the size of the area to be illuminated.
Ceiling lighting is very tricky. One, if you install a fixture that is too big, then it is going to look out of place. If at the same time, you install a fixture that is too small, it will look ridiculous. Therefore many people opt to let the interior decor people do the ceiling lights for them and even though it is a little costly that way, it is the best option. However if you are of a savvy mind, you can still do your own lighting and bring it out beautifully just like the interior decor people.
