Kitchen lighting problem
We are redoing our kitchen (first time it has been done since 1920) and I am trying to figure out the lighting above the sink. It is an old farm house and my wife is not allowing me to put recessed lighting in the ceiling since it is not "period".
We have a 9 foot window that our kitchen sink is centered on. We are putting wall cabinets above this window. The bottom of these cabinets will be about 4 feet above the sink and counter.
Since I can't use "can" lights in the sink area, I think I am going to have to use some kind of under cabinet lighting that I would hide from the front with some wood trim.
Does anyone know if the typical under cabinet lighting (xenon, etc.) would be bright enough at a 48" distance to do anything? I am open to other suggestions. I thought about a more traditional light under the cabinets but it would be sticking down in front of the window.
