One of the most forgotten, but crucial element to having the kitchen of your dreams, is good lighting.
Most people spend all their time focusing on the rest of the kitchen, such as the cabinets, counter tops, appliances, etc.
As a Lowe’s Creative Ideas Blogger, I was given the challenge to upgrade the kitchen.Disclosure: I am a member of the Lowe’s Creative Ideas Creators & Influencers Network and receive a Lowe’s gift card to complete my projects. Your kitchen is one of the most important areas of your home.No crazy major fixes, just lots of aesthetic things as just about every single thing in the house was the most basic builder-grade. So, here’s what the kitchen looked like when we bought it: After some paint, some appliances (rather important 😉 ), new tile flooring, an island, and removal of that awful swag light, here is what the kitchen looked like earlier this month: I don’t love our cabinets at all, but haven’t decided what color would be best for refinishing them.Plus, I knew that with a new baby, a complete cabinet refinish project would have been too big for us right now.
There were lots of shopping trips to Lowe’s to browse & make decisions (there were like 200 different hardware options alone). But, we wanted more; basically one over each work station.
