We are thinking about remodeling our kitchen, including the lighting. Is it worth the investment?
I say yes, absolutely. Kitchens and baths are the two rooms where you can pretty much add the cost of remodel right onto the value of your home, as long as the design is in keeping with the architecture of the house. Of course, I’m all about the lighting. Make sure that you do layers of light so that the kitchen can be as inviting as the rest the house and a perfect place for casual entertaining.
