Is My Kitchen Too Dark? (pic)
We are trying to wrap up our kitchen re-model. We had an old track lighting system in the kitchen with only 2 working bulbs. No under-cab lighting. It wasn't too dark b/c those 2 lights were really bright. Well, and everything in the old kitchen was mid-nineties white.
We replaced the fixture months ago with an Ikea fixture that had 3 35w halogen bulbs. Post kitchen remodel we now have under-cab LEDs and are very happy with them. However, the ceiling lamp seems a little dark and we notice a lot of shadows being cast. We have about 68" of length between the 2 soffits. The fixture has to be less than 27" wide as it fits between an air register & a sprinkler system.
Is there a better lighting option for this kitchen? It's a basement condo and there are no windows in the kitchen. Thanks!
