If you don’t get the lighting right, however, you’re likely to seriously regret it – kitchen lighting that’s too bright or dull, incorrectly placed, or too big or small in size is sure to irk you for years to come. Get it right, however, and you’ll enjoy spending time in this important room of the house, and it will make life easier too. We’ve consulted the experts for their advice on what works, what doesn’t, and what to watch out for.
The couple wanted the interiors to connect more cohesively to each other as well as to the gardens and pool. “The house needed a mudroom, more kitchen storage, and a dining area that didn’t feel like a dark cave,” says Vitzthum. She set about planning the new design within the existing footprint of the mid-century additions. Paulette wanted an open airy floor plan filled with natural light. She also wanted to keep a traditional look to the rooms to honor the age of the original structure.
She also had the chimney rebuilt and resurfaced. Again, additional windows next to the fireplace were added to wash the space in light. Vitzthum incorporated bookshelves and a window seat into the space, as well as a state-of-the-art audio and sound system concealed in the walls. For more energy-efficient rooms, she also specified radiant floors and super-insulated the walls to R-40 and the roof to R-60.
