Not For Under Cabinet Lighting

So after extensively searching for some affordable LED lights for under my kitchen cabinets, I thought I found something in IKEA’s Inreda & Komplement series. They were light bars which could connect with other light bars to cover more space. Unfortunately, the lights are somewhat angled so that they direct light to only the area under the upper cabinet and on the backsplash. They don’t cover the entire counter, which would be necessary for task lighting. Boo… time to continue surfing the web.

Kitchen Destruction

Today, at long last, we begun remodel work on our 70’s style kitchen. Let me say that demolition is a very quick process. This morning when I left for work, everything was intact, except for the portion of the wall that we let our friends “help” knock a hole in. When I got home, the floors were all taken up and the cabinets gone. *poof*

Tomorrow we’ll be discussing the recessed lighting positions as well as having the plumber come in to check things out. Exciting time ahead, and we’ve only just begun.
