Another Lighting Solution?

In many parts of the country, the loft has become a popular option for apartments or condominiums. Typically, lofts are common in old factory or mill buildings located in urban areas. Its a developers dream really. Keep the original shell replace windows, add a few floors and an intercom system and sell as is.

For the homeowner, it allows the opportunity to customize...but not completely. If the ceilings are 20 feet and concrete, how do you light it? You are probably not blasting through the ceiling to install recessed lighting or hang track.

In this situation, its important to understand where you need lighting. The kitchen and bath should be the two brightest areas. For our purposes, we will focus on the kitchen in this post. Instead of lighting from the ceiling, lets light from the cabinet...

As a gentleman named Arthur clearly shows us, there are 3 ways to accomplish this:

A cable or track system mounted to the cabinet. (The track is behind him)

Monoponts with individual lights again from the actual cabinet itself
