Our kitchen originally had fluorescent lights covered with translucent plastic panels. I removed the ceiling grid and lights, patched the holes, rewired electrical and installed pot-lights on a dimmer. Around the edges, I added Crown Moulding with a Rope-Light hidden behind it. The pot lights and rope light work independantly. I used my RYOBI 12" Miter Saw for the Crown Moulding. The Kitchen now has a more open and romantic feel to it. Much nicer than before.
