And today, our wonderful electrician came back to install all the outlets and ceiling lights. I almost peed my pants when I got home and saw how gorgeous my Rejuvenation schoolhouse lights look in here...
The can lights and main lights are all on dimmers, as well as the (not yet installed) under-cabinet lights. It is amazing how much better the kitchen looks with those can lights! Wow. I'm so glad we installed those, as I originally didn't think we needed them.
The kitchen lights I purchased are:
5 - EcoSmart 6 in. LED downlights from Home Depot
2 - Jefferson flushmounts in ORB with 12 in. opal shades from Rejuvenation
1 - Bryant flushmount in ORB with 10 in. opal shade from Rejuvenation
1 - Rhone pendant in ORB with 8 in. opal shade from Rejuvenation
Luckily, we found the LED downlights for $40 and WE Energies was running a rebate for buying LEDs ($25 each!) so I will be getting those babies for $15 each. The Rejuvenation was purchased on sale, so I ended up spending under $400 for all four lights. They are well worth it! Next up is picking cabinet hardware and getting appliances and window/door trim installed. Never-ending, I tell ya.
