Attention Realtors! There is a solution for that old kitchen lighting system in a Condominium or Home

Home Builder with Peck Drywall and Painting serving Brevard County, Florida License#PT393- RX11066969

It's a common dilemma among condo owners that I'm sure most of you have seen. The ugly out dated grid lighting system in a Condominium or Home. Whether your trying to sell a condo, trying to give suggestions on remodeling or your looking for an easy update. This process that I have developed will turn any of these eyesore's into a show piece that the buyers will love and their neighbors will envy.

Kitchen Light Before:

After Kitchen Light is removed. It's time for a little drywall and mud work:

After the drywall was repaired, It was ready for me to apply a new and modern texture called Skip Trowel:

After the Skip Trowel was applied we added crown molding around the perimeter of the new kitchen trey ceiling:

Primed and painted with Sherwin Williams Super Paint:

 Florecent lights were installed behind the crown molding for an elegant look:

Hi Paul,

I LOVE IT!!!  What a way to update and give the ceiling a face-lift!!!  Plus, it gives it a more open feeling.  I'm redoing my kitchen next month, but I have a light that is concaved out and attached to the ceiling, otherwise I would do it also.  Excellent way to change the look.. THANKS!!!

H Paul, I had seen this when you first posted it, these photos may be more comprehensive. I have recommended this process for years with the adaptation of pin lighting instead of the up lighting. Like both actually so depending on how much and what kind of light is preferred, this is a great alternative. The most important thing is getting the ugly plastic and fluorescent removed and doing something that  looks so much better.
