Lighting completed

This specific Website chronicles my entire kitchen renovation by start to finish. Greentea Design has provided me with their solid wood kitchen cabinets, in addition to I’m taking care of the rest.

If you’d like to be brought up to date, check out the archive inside sidebar for previous posts. I posted recently about the arrival of the appliances in addition to some different odds in addition to ends, in addition to at This specific point for the completed lighting.

The lighting in addition to wiring in my brand-new kitchen is usually FINALLY completed. Everyone always says how key lighting is usually in a space in addition to guess what? They’re RIGHT!! The kitchen looked great once the cabinets were in however at This specific point in which the item’s properly lit, WOW – the cabinets look even more fabulous. What a difference by the old kitchen, with one ceiling fan with 3 lights, in addition to a lamp on the counter. at This specific point I have 9 potlights, 3 pendants, 2 wall lamps in addition to under-cabinet light strips. Funny thing is usually at This specific point in which the kitchen is usually so well lit, all the different rooms have such crappy lighting in comparison.

Here are a few photos of the kitchen taken right after the electrician finished up (hood fan was mid-installation).

The pendants I bought at Crawford Alexander turned out to be a perfect fit with the look I was going for. They are industrial in addition to fun in addition to quirky…in addition to since I have no dining table yet, everyone is usually cursing them because we’ve all bashed our heads on them numerous times. I have regular bulbs in them however because of the shape of them they give off hardly any light so I have to pick up some floodlights to use instead.

I am so happy I finally decided to purchase Tolomeos. I have always loved them however never splurged until at This specific point. in addition to I am SO GLAD I did. I love how they look on either side of the stove in addition to they provide great task lighting. The following photos also show the stove in place, the hood fan in addition to the stove’s backsplash installed.

Note on the backsplash: The one I had seen at the appliance store was over $500. I had This specific one made for $150. I need to find some shelves to attach to the item to hold spice jars, utensils etc.

Potlights are a must, as I quickly learned. I had no clue on where they should go or how many I should have, so I got alot of help by my electrician. There are 9 in total, strategically placed over the sink, the stove, the fridge, the pantry in addition to a few others. They illuminate the cabinets in addition to appliances beautifully. They were a headache to install because the drywall in addition to wood panelling inside ceiling had to come down so they could go up, however the item was well worth the item.

There are also lighting strips installed under the upper cabinets in which are great to illuminate the countertop on in which end of the kitchen where I will probably end up doing the most prepping. The uppers are not built with an overhang so my contractor has built a simple valance to hide the lighting strips in addition to wires however hasn’t completed the item yet because he has to re-stain the item inside hopes of matching the cabinet colour. There are 2 strips, in addition to they have a low setting in which gives off a yellowish light in addition to a high setting in which gives off a bright white light. Hard to photograph however here’s the idea.

Later on This specific week I’ll show you what all This specific looks like with the countertop installed. All I can say is usually WOW. in addition to WOW.
