Lighting Plan SOS - photos included
Hello, hoping some of you might be able to help me come up with a lighting plan for my kitchen.
The kitchen is on the north side of my house so the light is low and I am only able to get in two 35" windows on either side of my rangetop.
I definitely want the kitchen to be bright and I know I need recessed lighting to get there. Where do I put those cans?
Also - our island is big - 9 1/2 feet long - with the sink and dishwasher housed in there. I'm very attracted to the pendant lighting but it seems like it would be more for looks than for actual light quality. Can I mix in recessed with the pendants to light this big island? Help! I have attached a photo of a neat pendant that I saw in an inn last weekend. The chain can be adjusted to any height. Which is a concern because my husband and I are both tall so I don't want pendants in our faces...
Our ceilings are 8 1/2' and the cabinets will go to the ceiling.
Countertops are blue persia granite, which has a white/creamy background. Cabinets will be white/offwhite.
I hope the photos come through.
Thank you for your help and advice.
