Need help swapping flourescent light in kitchen for more modern light
March 28, 2014 in Design Dilemma
We had slight water damage on our kitchen ceiling. We originally thought they would have to rip the whole ceiling down so we decided we wanted to swap out our 4 bulb flourescent light for two modern pendant lights above the island and then add some can lights to give more light in the kitchen. The flourescent light really lights up the kitchen and i think 2 pendant lights by themselves would not be enough light. Fortunately the damage was not as bad as expected and only retaping, mudding and painting is needed so now we can not add can lights without taking down the perfectly fine ceiling. But my wife really really wants to get rid of the flourescent and add pendant lights.... there is the dilemma. Attached is the kitchen layout as is and the original lights we wanted to replace the flourescent. Now i do not know what to do with the flourescent. Please help.
