Lights do make a difference!

So far we've only had the ceiling lights to illuminate the kitchen, but Hovic has now installed the under counter lights and the "puck" lights in the five cabinets at the top of the coffee bar. WOW!  A bit of local lighting really makes a big difference.  All of a sudden the kitchen becomes warm and intimate. Would never have guessed that this would happen because of a few lights. We are also experimenting with not putting doors on the cabinets above the coffee bar and using the space for display ... as indicated in the large image..

View toward the corner by the refrigerator. I was worried that this would be a dark hole, but the under counter lights make it a very useable space.
