Enhance your kitchen with improved lighting.
When I was a kid, I would sleep over at my grandparent’s house, there was nothing like sitting down on their floral couch to watch a baseball game or an old western movie with my grandpa after swimming in the pool out back, then in the mornings my grandma would always make the most amazing french toast, perfectly buttery and sweet, complemented with savory salty bacon. As an adult looking back, those are some the best moments of my childhood, and as I was reminiscing about different aspects of the sleepovers, I remembered one thing my grandma would do every time; after dinner was finished and the rest of us were comfortable in the living room, before she would come sit with us she would stand in the doorway and say, “kitchen’s closed” and turn off the light. As the overhead light shut off, there was a small light over the sink that would remain on, it had a blue hue to it and was a kind of nightlight to guide your steps if you needed a glass of water in the night. I remember being glad for that light, for without it the kitchen would have felt mysterious and daunting, a contrasting difference to the warm and happy kitchen that was home to a special breakfast tradition.
Do you have any memories like this? Little things that affected you at an early point in your life that you carry with you? I am fortunate to have wonderful grandparents who have influenced my life greatly, and there are many things that I’ve brought from my childhood into adulthood, one of which, if you couldn’t guess from my example, is a “nightlight” in the kitchen. I mentioned in the last blog how much I appreciated our updated kitchen when we bought our home, one of my favorite features being the under-cabinet lighting, to me, turning on this warm and subtle light each night to fill the otherwise dark room brings back that same sense of comfort as my grandma’s blue-hued sink light. It seems that people abandon the thought of expanding their kitchen lighting during a remodel, thinking perhaps that it’s too expensive or too complicated, or that the only way to have a beautifully-lit kitchen is to buy a home where it’s already in place.
