Light Plan - No Undercounter Lights
Attached is our kitchen plan. We do not intend to install the upper cabinets next to the stove initially, to see if we really need them. So, the only upppers are by the sink. There is a small bulk head between the kitchen and dining room(where old wall was), it is 5" wide, and hanges down 3".
Currently, there are two ceiling boxes on separate switches, with simple builder type fixtures, they are the GREEN boxes in the diagram.
Would pot lights provide enuf light, with out shadows on the work area, if mounted 24" out from wall? The RED dots show where I think I'd put recessed lights - not sure of size.
Would long track lighting be more effective, and a substantial savings?
Not sure we want pendants over the peninsula, they seem to block the openness.
