There are lots of tall trees near my east-facing kitchen window which are great for shade but make the kitchen dark. Since I do home-schooling, the two 25-year old track light strips are kept on a lot. The window can't be enlarged. What's the most cost effective way to do a kitchen remodeling of just the lighting?
My kitchen has a set of 6' long parallel track lights--the kind with exposed tracks and swivel tube-style lamps. Where they're placed is fine, but I'd prefer less obtrusive amiable recessed lights. What budget range should I plan for the drywall, painting, and electrical work involved?
