Lighting can make a world of difference in a kitchen. It can make it look larger and brighter. And it will help you work safely and efficiently. You should have two different types of lighting in your kitchen:
 
Task Lighting: Under-cabinet lighting should be on your must-do list, since cabinets create such dark work areas. And since you’re remodeling, there won’t be a better time to hard-wire your lights.  Plan for at least two fixtures per task area to eliminate shadows. Pendant lights are good for islands and other counters without low cabinets. Recessed lights and track lights work well over sinks and general prep areas with no cabinets overhead.

Ambient lighting: Flush-mounted ceiling fixtures, wall sconces, and track lights create overall lighting in your kitchen. Include dimmer switches to control intensity and mood.

Be Quality Conscience:  Functionality and durability should be top priorities during kitchen remodeling. Resist low-quality bargains, and choose products that combine low maintenance with long warranty periods. Solid-surface countertops, for instance, may cost a little more, but with the proper care, they’ll look great for a long time.And if you’re planning on moving soon, products with substantial warranties are a selling advantage.

I’ve been a resident of Bucks County since 1979 and have been a REALTOR since 1995. I have earned the respect of friends & associates by maintaining a level of fairness & understanding of their needs. A big part of my process is the conversation. I believe a lot of agents have forgotten this. To sit down & really listen to what you are looking to accomplish & what your dreams and wishes are. I’ve always said it all begins with a conversation & it holds true for everything.
