Please --need help with recessed lights (photo included)

mbarstowFebruary 16, 2009

I desperately need help on placement of recessed lights. Ceiling height is 8.5 ft. and I will have at least 180 watts in pendant over sink (dimmable) and lights under range hood. The work area is 12 x 10.5 ft. but the

room is 12 x 17.5 with an adjoining 10 x 10 breakfast room which will have a chandelier. Will 7 (5'') floods be sufficient? The 6 ft base cabinet over by the exit door is not a work area--it is strictly a storage area. Where should these lights be placed? Thanks for all suggestions.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

I'd reccomend doing the 4" low voltage over incandescent, better lighting less wattage and more light, also longer life on the bulb, i'd do 6 in the kitchen and 4 in the eating area. Look in the the EL1488 trim from Elco Lighting, thats the trim i'd recommend and use a wide beam, AKA a FNV. Let me know if you have any questions.
