 WAC Brightens Galley Sink Showroom/Test Kitchen in Tulsa with LED Tape and Downlights

Tulsa, Oklahoma--A brand-new $225K showroom/Test Kitchen was recently completed to showcase The Galley Sink, a multi-functional kitchen work station where all prep, cooking, serving and clean-up can be done in one place. The Galley was developed two years ago by Roger Shollmier, a renowned kitchen designer whose own kitchen was named the "Most Bodacious Kitchen in America" by HGTV's Fine Living Network. In the past two years, over 200 Galleys have been installed in the Tulsa area, and now are being sold nationwide.


The Galley Test Kitchen features WAC's LED lighting, as well as SubZero/Wolf appliances and UltraCraft cabinets. The Galley hosts numerous events including cooking demonstrations, classes, filmings, and private parties.

To illuminate the state-of-the-art showroom, the designer selected WAC's LED lighting. "We used InvisiLED® Pro tape where we wanted to illuminate interiors of cabinets, as in the beverage area where we show off the glasses and barware against the dark cherry cabinet interior," explained Linda French of The Galley LLC.


InvisiLED® Pro was also installed inside the Galley Locker: a pair of 7.5- foot tall dark cherry cabinets with glass and metal doors. "We installed the LED tape on an angle behind the doors to flood the entire space with pure light," continued Ms. French. "This best highlights the white plates and serving pieces inside the Locker, as well as the pots and utensils displayed there."

Above the Galley Locker, InvisiLED® Pro was used to highlight a long piece of driftwood that was suspended to give a "floating effect." Over the cleanup sink, a large bamboo slab was backlit with the InvisiLED® Pro to project a warm glow on the backsplash.


In addition, 30 of WAC's Tesla LED recessed 2- and 3.5-inch downlights were used for general lighting in the main seating area.

"We mixed glossy white with dark stained bamboo cabinets, with an organic stone wall and dark wood floors," said Ms. French. "WAC luminaires deliver superior accent and general lighting while providing cool operation, significant energy savings and efficiency, and minimal maintenance. WAC delivers outstanding kitchen lighting solutions for both the professional and consumer."
