Recessed lighting cans: what size? 4", 5" or 6"

NYMKApril 11, 2013

My kitchen is 11 ft by 12 ft and L shaped. I will also have a peninsula with two pendant lights. I am trying to figure out what size cans to use. What should I consider in making this decision? My contractor has six 5" cans written in his proposal. Thanks!

5" would be fine... it's just a matter of personal taste tho. With 4" you'll need more fixtures so 5" or 6" is probly better for general lighting.
