KItchen, Bala Cynwyd, PA

A recent kitchen renovation in Bala Cynwyd.

We removed the dated dome lights and installed strategically placed 4” recessed lights. For under-cabinet lighting, we used a series of hardwired, non-heat producing LED lights. These are self-adhesive, paper-thin strips that provide plenty of attractive light, install easily and cost a fraction of standard under-cabinet lighting. And you can’t see them without bending down to look under the cabinets.

The new bamboo floor certainly brightened things up, as did the quartz countertops. We sought a lumberyard that carried the same dimension and profile baseboard as the rest of the house. A custom-made steel frame, topped by a matching slab of countertop, made the new kitchen table. Some new Bosch appliances, floating IKEA shelves, a few coats of Benjamin Moore paint, a custom mosaic glass tile backsplash were the finishing touches.

the tile is 1" square glass tile. to be honest i think the homeowner bought it at home depot. it was a few years ago so i'm not sure if they still carry that line.

msblanchet - in fact, they're simply IKEA shelves. The LACK series comes in a variety of colors with concealed hardware.

how large is the space...were you able to use the exact size IKEA sells or did you have to alter the shelves?

fairbrother - there are several manufacturers of LED-strip lighting, but the one that we used for this project is from IKEA, it's called LEDBERG. inexpensive and easy to hide (and, if you choose, the light color can be chosen to fit your mood).
