Home Remodel Time
We already had 3 recessed lights in the ceiling of the kitchen, but we definitely needed to add a couple other lighting touches. For one thing, the island definitely needed something. So we found some really cool pendant lights at our favorite home improvement warehouse:
It was a little difficult to get those babies at the right height, and then of course making them even with each other, but I think we nailed it (or at least close enough!)
As you can see, we still had a whole to patch, and also paint the ceiling and walls, but I was in a hurry to get this lighting in to help us see better at night. Plus we were waiting the two weeks for the countertops to come in (once you have the base cabinets in, they come in to measure and then you wait 2 weeks for them to make them, etc).
For our other lighting… I don’t like chopping my vegetables with my shadow hovering over the counter in front of me. So we added under cabinet lighting, which was one of my favorite things in the world.
Also, once we put the backsplash in, that under cabinet lighting will really make a “splash” 😉
The other good thing about under cabinet lighting is it makes for a great night light when you’re watching a movie, but you still want to see where you’re going when you get up to go to the bathroom, pop some popcorn, or top off your glass of pepsi.
