Our Kitchen Lighting Plans

Whit461February 5, 2013

I posted this over in the Kitchen forum. Sorry, I am bouncing around too much.

Any thoughts? Our kitchen measure 13x14. We are putting in a U shaped kitchen with marble counters and a 42" wide penninsula. No uppers. Opposite wall will be tall wall cabinets, and be the passway thru the kitchen. #1 above has 11 cans in the kitchen area, #2 has 8. I am planning on installing Halo 6" housings and use CR6 trim/bulbs from Ecosmart. There will be a hood over the range with lights.

Is there too many in #1? Not enough in #2? #1 is spaced about 3' apart, and #2 is 4' apart. Also along the wall cabinets, I worry about placement in front of cabinets vs. even spacing.
