I am pretty sure I've made a decision.
When we were talking pendant lights above the sink, I must have forgotten that I'd asked for a garden window above the sink so I could grow fresh herbs year round.
Something like this
Obviously it would not look right with a light hanging down in front of it, so, pendant light is out.
Also, if we tried to put two pendant lights over the bar like this
that cabinet will hit the one on the left when we try to open it...
So I think what I'm going to have to do is just put two recessed lights over the bar. Which most of you pointed out - would lead to better flow between the two rooms and nobody sitting at the bar will be stuck looking into a light fixture.
and over the sink, dial it down to the three light sconce
My photoshop skills are starting to fail me. I don't think that garden window is quite at the right perspective... you get the idea though! (Do you like the forest that miraculously appeared in my front yard?)
As far as schedule goes - the cabinets have been ordered! Work is scheduled to start September 1st! Is it ever going to get here?
