Rebekah

Any ideas on pendent for over the sink , to replace the florescent lighting ? the window is standard 36 inches. Should we go with one or r three?

    Only one! The space is too small for any more than one.

    Be careful of scale. With the soffit above the sink, you don't want the pendant to be too large or to hang down too far.

    Beth H. :

    get one MINI pendant


    consider replacing your knobs on the cabs w/matching hardware to the light. you can use that existing hole and just drill another one below it.


    or, since you're doing blue, try the gold (light would be gold too). blue/gold look great together

    Is it too late to recommend that the tile for your backsplash might be too much like the cabinets?

    Both very strong.

    I envision a cute flush mount, something similar to this:

    Schoolhouse Electric - Otis 6"


    (and most definitely only one...of anything)

    450 lumens at counter level is needed for work areas. Keep that in mind when you choose and position your pendant so you don't make a shadow on your work. Use a dimmable led bulb like an A19 15w 100w equivalent.

    I hung my pendent from the soffit over the sink....looks fine. Don't have a picture.

    Love the flush mount idea because it doesn't block your window. Love Beth's idea of going for gold accents. I think that will give you that great accent to your blue. Here are some pieces that i think would work for your space. Good luck with the remodel!

    Flush mount on the soffit. Love the striped glass on the schoolhouse fixture above!

    What would you use the outlet above the window for ?
