When it comes to the lighting in the kitchen we often don’t provide enough and later on wish we had installed just a little bit more fixtures. The best time to install additional lighting is while the kitchen remodel is going on but it is not the only time to do it. You can add additional lighting at any time with little mess if it is done correctly.
I’m often called upon to add more lighting without doing remodeling and I go about it in a way to create as little damage or repair to the ceiling or walls as I can get away with. No sense in making more work for myself ya know.
For you convenience I’ve made this link to some great Lighting examples
