It's my view that the Kitchen is the first place you should remodel. When guests show up, for some reason we always wind up standing in the kitchen! This was a project we worked on with Steve Henderson from "Coastal Home and Garden" up in Maine.
We ran all the wires and installed all the boxes to save money on the electricians bill. That way they can just make all the connections!
Here you can see the traditional style ceiling light going into place.
