Kitchen Lighting - How Much
Am in the final stages of setting a contract for renovating the kitchen and the question of lighting is not quite settled. The kitchen is 16 foot square with cabinets along two walls in an L shape and a big island. My plan is to use CR6's (on about 6 foot sentres) along the two walls where there are no cabinets and to use CR4's (on approximately 4 foot centres) over the edges of the counter.
Now for the questions ... there will be a 4 foot aisle between cabinets and island - do I need additional CR6's in this aisle even if I have CR4's over the countertops and pendants on the island? Also, between LED pucks, LED strips and slim flourescents, what is the best choice for undercoabinet lighting? Since the existing kitchen will be gutted, whatever is decided can be easily wired.
