Can kitchen lights be reduced? Over Budget!
Lighting/electrical plan came in $7,000 over budget. Needless to say some intensive time was spent over the last 24 hours to bring that down. I didn't touch the kitchen, however.
I incorporated so many things from GW in this plan especially in the ktichen. ... and now the time has come that I have to ask are there changes that can be made to reduce costs yet still provide sufficient light?
The current kitchen plan has 15 cans ( 5 centered over the counters, 3 centered over the island, 6 to either side of the island, 1over the "nook" cabinet ... and under cabinet lighting for three cabinets, in cabinet lighitng for two. )
The UCL can be limited to just the two 30" cabinets on either side of the range . I'm also interested in less expensive options fo UCL as the electrician said low voltage is $500 which seems like a high price for two cabinets.
I so appreciate all the information and resources from GW ... and any opinions, thoughts, recommendations that you can give me on this one.
