lighting help please!
Please don't tell me to go no the lighting forum. My head is spinning from 3 hours of reading it and i have made no progress.
We are gutting our galley kitchen and will need to replace 5 recessed lights and add undercabinet lighing. I keep reading on the lighing forum that LED is best but the local lighing store thought we should stick with halogen b/c it's cheaper, has nicer lighting and in the very near future, will just be able to take out the bulbs and replace with an LED bulb if we wanted to. For all of you with finished kitchens, can you tell me what you have (brand, size, type) and if you like them? Our kitchen is in the basement so there is no natural light, HOWEVER, i do not like super bright kitchens. I like warm light that is dimmable and bright enough for cooking but not lit up like a football stadium. Also, the store showed us those LED tape strips from WAC for undercabinet lights. any experience with them? My space is not big and the ceilings will be about 7 1/2 feet in the kitchen area. I attached the space that is going to be redone. The ceiling is going to raised about 6" so we can do whatever we want with lighing. Thanks!
