Vent hood as 'art' -- will CR6 help or hurt?

jlb1003February 15, 2012

Hi, I will be using CR6's (or LR6's) in a small kitchen -- and undercabinet lighting on the one and only wall with uppers. The adjacent wall will have a large custom made hood. (60" x 18"H x 24 D). If I have a recessed LED ~ 18 " in front of the hood -- will that look ok? I want to illuminate it in as an art feature, sort of. It will be on it's own switch. It faces the living room. I also can consider an "eye", but I don't really want it to look like a headlight facing this hood. (By the way, the hood will be blackened steel, not shiney at all).

Thanks much!

It should be ok. The CR6 does not behave like a spotlight.

I have LR6's around the hood.
