A little more progress has been made on our kitchen! The upper and lower cabinet lighting has started going in! When it’s complete, every cabinet will have an upper light over it and a lower light below it. My husband and I tend to be those people who don’t regularly use overhead lights. We always turn on the cabinet lighting as our “every day” lighting. It’s bright enough to light up the room but isn’t intrusive. Since we have those huge floor to ceiling windows in the kitchen we won’t be lacking in light.
Our island counter top went in and it looks beautiful! We added a 3 inch drop edge to the island. What that means is, they attach a 3 inch piece of marble to the edge of the island giving it a thicker look all the way around. It really makes the island look more beefy and bold. It also added an extra 2 inches to the island height. We had already raised our island above standard height, so now it’s even taller! I’m only 5’3. The island comes up pretty high on me, but not too high that it’s unusable. Instead of leaning over at the island to do things (standard counters hit me about waist height), everything will be right at arm level (the new ones hit at my lower rib cage).
The kitchen is coming along so well. We have one month to go. I can’t wait for everything to be finished out. I’m dying to get back to having a kitchen of my own!
