Look for colorful options or Scott's favorite, a brushed nickel finish.But resist the temptation to get something too personal or cutesy.I have old fluorescent lighting, and I'm not sure what the best light is.I need a fixture for over my stove, table, and sink. Odds are, your mind jumped straight to custom cabinetry, pro-grade appliances or pricey stone countertops.But a well-layered lighting plan is the ingredient that ties all those trappings together.
We definitely decided to lighten up all the paint throughout and the unfortunate wallpaper that was installed over 10 years ago had to go.Among the things that have kept me busy this summer, a kitchen renovation right here in Birmingham has been a fun project that I’ve enjoyed working on.I was referred to a home owner who had listed his house for sale earlier this year and the constant feedback on the showings was that the kitchen was hopelessly outdated. The client asked me to come and give him some cost effective ideas that would help get his house sold, since he has been transferred to Georgia and needs to get it sold fairly quickly.The unfortunate part was that it covered the kitchen, dining room, and most of the bathrooms.We concentrated most of the efforts in the downstairs areas. The house is really a beautiful traditional brick home that just needed some updating to bring it into the 21st century. Not a bad color, but neutrals show off a home to its best advantage, most of the time.I am extremely overwhelmed by the many types of lights designed for kitchens.
