I was doing dishes in the kitchen last night and it's dark over the sink. My girlfriend often complains that it's dark over the sink. There's a light fixture in the center of the kitchen, and a light on the range hood. Above the sink there's a shelf thingy where my girlfriend keeps her "pretty dishes" and stuff like that. Behind the dishes is (what I believe to be) a string of Christmas tree lights, making a soft backlighting for the "pretty dishes." To plug in the backlighting, she had to unplug a flourescent tube lamp mounted above the sink, she also cut the cable on said flourscent tube lamp. So, for the sake of making her pretty dishes look prettier (and you probably wouldn't notice unless all the lights were off or were looking directly at them), she sacrificed decent lighting over the sink. She's willing to complain about the lack of light, and hardly ever turn on the "pretty lights." If you had a choice between something that worked well, but didn't look as "cool" or something that didn't work well (or inefficiently), but looked cool, what would you choose?
