“It was like putting a 3-D jigsaw puzzle together,” says Vitzthum in regard to creating new spaces that would work for twenty-first-century living. Vitzthum began her layout by relocating the new kitchen to where the dark dining room used to be. The original space had 7 6 ceilings and no windows, making the room dark and gloomy and not a place Paulette wanted to entertain.
A period-friendly light fixture is the perfect way to top off a kitchen restoration. But should you choose an authentic vintage fixture, or a spot-on reproduction? The answer depends on a number of different considerations. Use our guidelines below to determine which type of light is best for you.
You don’t have time to search. For some people, the thrill of finding a one-of-a-kind fixture outweighs the time spent combing antique stores, eBay, and the like. But if you have a tight deadline in mind for your kitchen project, you may not want to wait for the perfect light to come along. With reproduction fixtures, what you see is what you get—today and six months from now. You’ll also have the peace of mind of knowing that if the fixture gets damaged (say, a shade breaks), you can easily replace it.
