The only thing I wished the electrician did was to put the LED lighting all underneath the bar, he only outlined the bar, which looks cool....but I would have prefered the whole thing...as the island is big and would look awkward if its only outlined with LED...and it must match. The quartzite is so beautiful. I'm also thinking of going simple stone work on the back splash so the counter tops can stand out. I didn't put LED lightning on the main counter tops...thought it would be too much, only on the island and bar we have. Mirrors sound lovely! Send pics when you are finished. I'm also installing a chandelier over the island. I ordered my hood from oldstoneworks.com
I love my stone hood. The cabinets are rustic matte brown.

Understood. Most images on the interenet show the entire surface backlit. I myself am creating a different pattern on the counter and on the island - a long wavy strip of light just behind a vein on the counter, and three "placemats" on the island. Its great to be able to light uniformly and light only the shapes you want lit with appropriate cutouts in the plywood. Found two sites that sell thin (6 - 8mm) acrylic sheets with LEDs embedded that can be cut to any shape - lumascent.com and nu-wo.com. In another contractor's website, I saw pictures of it being built and they had laid down what appeared to be shiny kitchen foil under the LED - maybe to re-reflect what did not make it out through the stone in the first place. Thanks also for the hood lead. Our stove is on the island with a useless downdraft, and I was grappling with the problem of having an ugly hood sticking down in the middle of the kitchen.
