could be a number of issues here , best to get someone
in to look at this for you.
Yes it just could be the kitchen light causing the problem
or u could have a wiring issue to address , earthing ,
loose connections . Very hard to guess without looking.
Get someone in.

I remember my old boss stating to me that with some flourescent fittings the ballast can cause problems especially when on the same circuit as a dimmer unit and this can have a knock on effect throughout the circuit.
More modern flourescent fittings don't have this problem. :?:

As your knowledge seems limited my best advice would be to get in an electrician for safety sake
