Contemporary Shaker Kitchen
This bright and light shaker style kitchen is painted in bespoke Tom Howley paint colour; Chicory, the light Ivory Spice granite worktops and Mazzano Tumbled marble flooring create a heightened sense of space.
What Houzz contributors are saying:
How disruptive is it to retrofit lighting?While a small amount of retrofitting is feasible, the consensus from our experts is that lighting is best installed while you’re renovating. “If you’re moving or adding a few downlights, for example, it can be done without much disruption,” Anatoly says. “However, if you’re changing the lighting system altogether, it needs to be done as part of the bigger renovation project, which may cause disruption.”“However, it depends on the project and make-up of the walls, floor and ceiling,” Luke adds. “If walls and ceilings are being replaced or replastered, then rewiring may not be much of an issue.”
6. Consider shadows When a recessed downlight is placed over the space between a kitchen bench and the island, where will it cast shadows when you are standing at the range hood? Too often, fixtures are installed in the wrong place because ceiling geometry is considered more important than what you are doing with the chef’s knife.
