Kitchen Ceiling With Fan and Light Fixture
Selecting the right ceiling light fixture for the kitchen was a difficult challenge, but when I saw this one, it was a singularly quick decisions among many belabored decisions that I’ve made concerning my house. (I must reluctantly admit that I take way too long to make most house decisions.)
The galley kitchen is 8 feet wide and 12 feet long, and so this fan and light fixture align with the length of the room. The two adjustable fans are positioned closely to both the sink and range areas and help target air movement to these two areas whenever needed.
Since there is a slight step up into the kitchen, this fixture is one of the first things that you see when entering from the sunroom which is an added bonus. The dark metal and fan blades make a nice contrast to the white paint on the bead-board ceiling.
I replaced the kitchen’s out-of-place crown molding with a more modest trim that is repeated in the dining and living rooms as part of the box beam ceiling. I’ve used bead-board on both the utilitarian kitchen and bathroom ceilings as well as on the casual sunroom ceiling.
These photographs were taken December 2012. The fixture was installed fall 2011 and came from Lowe’s. (No special order needed, and very reasonably priced!) The light that you see illuminating the ceiling is from a separate light source, not the ceiling fixture. I left the ceiling light off to make it easier to photograph.
