If you like your cabinets but want a bit more pizzazz, put a spotlight on them with lighting. Designer Judith Wright Sentz used LED ribbon lights inside and low voltage lights underneath. Not only does this showcase the beautiful leaded glass doors and items on display, it also provides additional functional light for the kitchen. Sentz says the kitchen, which was a 2016 National Kitchen + Bath Association Design Competition winner, was once very dark, so she took care to add as much light to the space as possible.
