placement of recessed lighting cans - help, please!

thndersnowMarch 31, 2010

We want to have recessed lighting throughout the kitchen, along with one centered semi-flush mount along with a hanging pendant over the sink. We will also have undercabinet lighting.

Thoughts on where to place the recessed lighting cans? Our initial thoughts were just to spread four 5" cans evenly around the room.

I've read other threads where kitchens in size similar to mine had up to 8 recessed lighting cans. I know there is not one single rule to use, but just wanted to get some opinions.

Here is a picture, hopefully it's big enough to see the measurements.. Thanks in advance!

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

I'd say 6 cans spread out evenly, taking the hanging pendant into consideration would be better.
