Skylight in kitchen- yes or no?

5 years ago
Would love to hear feedback as I am considering adding a skylight in my kitchen because it is so dark. Obviously the light that will come in isn’t around the clock, so then the issue becomes lighting fixtures...
will can lights be enough + 2 pendants over a peninsula?
With the skylight placed in the middle of the kitchen, I wouldn’t be able to mount any kind of fixture in the middle of the kitchen.
Including the aerial view of kitchen. Would love an idea of necessary lighting/placement of cans, fixtures etc.
Also, I am a bit concerned on the looks of changing the front elevation. Is it unsightly to see the skylight from the front of the house? I tried to mark in red where it would be placed. The size is 30 1/2 x 46 1/2.

Thoughts? Things to consider? Thanks in advance.
