So when I redid my kitchen, I knew the huge ceiling box had to go. UNFORTUNATELY THEY ARE NO LONGER AVAILABLE, BUT THIS ONE IS VERY SIMILAR. Replacing a fixture like this is pretty straight forward. Here is another option you need a matched set of a large (5 light) and small (3 light). Because our ceilings were orange peel textured, the patch looked terrible, and I knew I would have to mask it. Our house was built in the mid-1980’s, and had fluorescent lighting in the kitchen and bathrooms.These lights are not only unflattering, but in our house they were also falling apart.
He hired a contractor to do the work, with supervision from me along the way and I’m absolutely thrilled with how it came out. I worked off the color strip of Sherwin Williams Rice Grain for the wall paint, with Rice Grain going in the kitchen and diningroom and the lighter shade, Nacre, going in the den, which I didn’t get pics of, since it wasn’t put back together yet.In addition, the glass-front cabinets have wood shelves, so only the top shelf got light.To update the lighting in the kitchen, the bulbs in the pendant lights were replaced with frosted bulbs, an inexpensive way to reduce the glare and soften the lighting in the eating area.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his house for sale earlier this year and the constant feedback on the showings was that the kitchen was hopelessly outdated.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.
