ok bloggy friends, it appears you and I are not in agreement on the lighting scheme for my kitchen. Nobody liked my favorite light....
But, I do see some of your points.
For instance, a few of you pointed out that I may not want a pendant light over my sink because:
- It will block our view out the window
- It will glare at night
Of those of you who liked the pendant, most of you liked the first one the best of which I've started to totally hate... so I went back to the drawing board.
My current plan for over the sink...
Something like him (or maybe even him)... what I like is that it takes up all of that horizontal dead space above the window, provides TONS of light , but also doesn't block my window... To scale (as far as my math skills allow), what he would look like in the kitchen:
We'd probably move some of those recessed lights over at this point.
So what do we think? Do we like this idea better?
Oh and while we're here - do you think the tile should go all the way up on this wall or stop where it is? Here's a preview if it went all the way up
It does make this wall more of a focus doesn't it....
I'm also not totally convinced I want lights over the bar/peninsula anymore... it's not really that big so we don't have room for more than 2.. in fact, perhaps 1 is more appropriate... but if I do put one there, I found this one that coordinates with the over the sink fixture perfectly!
If I just did one, he would look something like this:
Ok, new opinions please? ;)
