Got the electrician in today to install 7 recessed lights in our 19x8 galley kitchen. Before we had 2 old flourescent fixtures and wow, does it look different now!!! He was also able to update an old ceiling exhaust fan and move it closer over the range. I'm so pleased with his work but with the new lighting I can see all the dirt I missed cleaning before Smile

It is said that paint transforms a space like nothing else, but lighting has a similar effect and is often an after thought. Not only does illuminate, but can warm a space, highlight an area calling attention to it, bump a wall back and set a mood. I can't wait to see what it's done to your space. I can relate somewhat to your changes when my DH removed a florescent box to three pendants , changed our chandy and had cans installed to illuminate our countertops.

Wish you could post before and after shots of your kitchen. I've been trying to convince DH to change out our fluorescent bulbs but he doesn't think he will be able to see what he's eating at our bar...(rolling eyes here!)

Ladies, you need to develop an attitude! If MEN can do it, how hard can it be? You can do it because we READ and FOLLOW directions, what a thought! LOL!
