Sconce above sink? (Trailrunner, others...)
Our new layout will have the sink on a interior wall. The plan is for a couple of open shelves on the wall, running between the two adjacent uppers. Our electrician wired for an under cabinet light in that space (which is funny, since there is no cabinet there). So, we were thinking about a vintage-style sconce instead of one of the shelves.
Trailrunner has one, I know - if you're around and would care to chime in, that would be great. How high off the counters is your sconce? Do you have any issues with glare?
Some others with sinks facing an interior wall seem to have still used under cabinet lighting beneath a raised cabinet (Segbrown?). For those that took this route, do you see an unsightly UCL when you look up from the sink?
Here's a funny screenshot of our SketchUp kitchen. (The circle/line over the sink was a mock-up of sconce depth. If we go this route, we would most likely get rid of the lower shelf and mount the sconce there.)
Thoughts? Other options?
