We first installed battery operated LED puck lights underneath the cabinets after our kitchen remodel but they ended up not being very practical. The lighting was dim and more of a spotlight on a focused area. I see the importance of having a lighting plan in place when approaching a remodel. It’s much easier to install wired lighting while things (cabinets, back splashes, etc) are torn apart than once it is all put back together. However, if you are like me and realized this after the fact, or maybe you are renting and cannot install hard wired lighting, this solution works MUCH better than our previous solution.
Here’s a small update on the office built-ins (see more about them here) which finally have their finishing touches. There were two pieces of wood molding that needed to be added to each side to close off that small gap between the shelves and the wall that you can see here on the far right.
I also chose cabinet door knobs from Anthropologie. I love sparkle and I love natural stone so I went with the druzy quartz knobs.
Each one is unique due to the natural variations of crystals. Two of mine sparkle a little more than the other two so I paired those together on the right set of shelves.
That wraps it up for now! We are enjoying our ‘new’ office!
