RE: Please critique this lighting plan (Follow-Up #3)

I'm far from a lighting expert, However we just finished our kitchen and can say with certainty that the cans should be at the very edge of your countertop - regardless if you have under cabinet lighting.

Also, you may want to consider having the cans closer to the front of the basement stairs, small pantry, and garage entry. (perhaps in a line right across that wall from one end to the other?)

Like the pendants over the island instead of a fan. Fan looks good over the living area.

Good luck in your reno!

Kitchen estimate - white beaded inset cab with cherry island

posted by: robinson622 on 12.09.2009 at 10:44 pm in Kitchens Forum

I'm clueless when it comes to pricing for cabinets, so I'd appreciate your input. We received our first estimate on our kitchen cabinets. Here are some details:
-Kitchen dimensions are 15 x 15
-L shaped
-cherry island 7 x 4
-cabinets will run 15 x 10'4"
-36in. wall cabs

-perimeter cabinets are maple painted off white beaded inset shaker style
-mostly drawers in base
-insides are maple
-dovetail drawers
-full extension drawers
-soft close drawers and doors
-spice pullout
-hood over range
-lazy suzan
-double trash 24" pullout
-tilt out for sponges
-all hardware is included
-only a few wall cabinets - 15' wall has 3 30" windows over sink (will have 7 x 7 pantry to help with lost space due to windows)

Total is just under $13,000 includes delivery and installation.

I'm going to visit some other kitchen places this week and next. These cabinets are from an Amish cabinet maker in Pennsylvania.
