4 pot lights + a switch for $1400 is a ****ing rip off. Get 1 and do the other 3 yourself later. Pot lights aren't cheap through the builder (Like we paid $170 per light), but 1400 for 4 is a huge...

I wouldn't call either of those stark contrasts...they both look great.

Contrasts in general can go REALLY well, or really badly. We have dark blue lowers and white uppers. It turned out perfectly.

That'S INSANE. I think we spent an extra $700 per bathroom for quartz there, and maybe $300-500 per bathroom to have the cabinets match the kitchen.
