When we bought our first media center, we were focused on finding something that fit in the corner. It looked great, hid the mess of wires connecting our home theater equipment, and was out of the way. Unfortunately, we didn’t actually take any pictures of it when it was nice and neat. This is the first picture we have and you can already begin to see the problem.

So you just installed your fancy new LED lighting (or perhaps just CFL) and you made sure to get a dimmer like this one and you go to to dim the lights and it doesn't work! I meant to mention this part last time, but I forgot. If you notice, our new kitchen lighting (which I'm glad was SO much easier than the family room as those lights actually had proper tension clips) looks quite bright even at the lowest setting.
Apparently it can take upwards of two if you’re trying to retrofit super ugly recessed lighting from the late 70s. I’ve hated our recessed lighting not only because it uses high-wattage fluorescent bulbs (75 W), but also but they look plain ugly.
The fireplace renovation turned out to be a much bigger job than expected, but we think it turned out pretty well in the end.
