The first replacement (and biggest improvement if I do say so myself) is in the kitchen, here is what the fixture used to look like,
And here is the new fixture! Oooh!! Track Lighting!!!
This has really worked out soooo much better for our kitchen. We had a real problem before with getting enough light to all our work areas and this has really solved it. We now position each individual light so that is goes right where we need it to be.
|For example, this prep area used to be super dark. Not anymore!|
The updated fixture isn't crazy exciting or glamorous but it certainly looks more finished and it's a huge improvement over what was there before. Also, it only cost about $5!
|The new fixture, a little hard to see here but trust me it looks good.|
|You can see it a little better here.|
|The light turned off so you can see the pretty paper shade|
|And the light turned on so you can see the nice diffuse light it provides. It makes the room much more cheery :-)|
