Combining pendant and recessed lights to light a dining table
Hi all, first time poster. I have a 30' x 14' great room with an 8' ceiling and am using one half of the room as a dining room. I am starting from scratch on the lighting. My current plan is to drop a non-dimmable drum pendant light above the center of the dining room table and then to use 4 dimmable recessed lights with par30 75w bulbs in a 7'-sided square around the table. Here are my questions:
1) What should be the total wattage of the pendant light to provide adequate light for the table?
2) Does this setup make sense in general? Any obvious improvements?
Thanks in advance!
