kitchen lighting

Have fluorescent lights in my kitchen and would like to know if it is possible to replace current switch with a dimmer?

If the ballast say that they are dimmable you could. However most ballasts are not dimmable.

If overhead kitchen lighting is flourescent, this tends to be passe. Most fluorescents are not dimmable. If you would like dimmable lights, perhaps it's time to update the kitchen lighting. With undercabinet task lighting, you can go with pendants or chandelier to update the overhead kitchen lighting. These are dimmable and can easily update the decor and provide the ambience you desire.

I should have mentioned that there is a drop ceiling and there are (4) 4 ft. bulbs so I may have to go with what I think is dome lighting and try using regular bulbs.Will look at the ballast today. Thanks
