I am t-3 weeks to demolition, so need to finalize lighting plans.
Background: The kitchen and sun room are one long room but the kitchen part has an 8 foot ceiling and the sun room has a cathedral ceiling - close to 12 feet at the peak.
The main kitchen has a garden window over the sink which faces south.
The sun room has 2 large windows - one on the east wall and one on the south wall.
Here is a picture of the plans
This is the east wall of the sun room with our his and her "caves" - a place to store all of our cycling equipment etc.
The benches have drawers that pull out. We will be putting a royal mission lift top table in the room - the table is 48x30 and the hubbarton forge ribbon oval chandelier is 38.5x 24.5 with 6 arms- type A bulbs(max 100w each). I think with the cathedral ceiling that we need "uplighting". Is this too large for the room?
We will also put LED rope lighting above the his and her caves(we can't go above the bench as the window follows the cathedral ceiling lines. We will also put rope lighting on a shelf dividing the sun room and the main kitchen.
Now onward to the main kitchen
We plan to put GMLightbar LARC3 series (3000) under cabinet and hopefully they can be dimmed.
We will also put the outlets under the cabinet - I found a nifty one on line but can't find the literature right now.
Plan on recessed cans with LED trim sets (LR7 I think)
Should the cans be over the counter or at the edge of the counter? I think we need one can on either side of the cooktop - thoughts?
We have 4 halogen lights on the Broan hood.
Birds eye view of the kitchen and sunroom - shows the placement of the cooktop.
Should we put recessed lighting over the sink (remember, we have a garden window but will be getting rid of our soffitt - so have about 15 inches of clearance if a pendant or 2 would be better.
Also, how many cans should we put on the run from the sink to the dining room entry - 2 or 3
In addition to the cans, we will have hockey puck Xenon(I think) in the glass show cabinet.
On the north wall of the main kitchen - the counter run is 45 inches - one or two cans? The fridge is on one end and the oven on the other.
Just a couple more questions - I promise!
Should we put more cans in the center or use a semi-flush decorative mount?
The NW corner is the entry to the dining room and the pantry - should we put a can or 2 here?
Whew? Hope I didn't over extend my questions!
