When we first looked at this house several years ago, I immediately noticed that I was going to want to replace the light fixtures. The lady that lived here just had very different tastes than mine. I’d have to say her style was “flashy” and “gaudy.” My tastes are more subtle and subdued.
I want to replace the bathroom light fixtures first of all. She had those “Las Vegas dancing girls dressing room” strip lights with naked light bulbs that are so very bright and glaring and cold and unforgiving. I simply would prefer something that casts a warmer glow, with shades over the light bulbs.
The kitchen has a counter/island area that I like to use for food preparation. However there are no lights anywhere near that counter, so it is very dark there. I need some new kitchen light fixtures there. I’d like to have a couple of mini-pendant lights over the counter.
And the area in the family room where we actually have our dining table also has no lights of any kind. So I’d like to have one of the small chandeliers over the table.
