Need a lighting plan
Hello Lords of Lumens,
Cabinets are ordered, appliances are on their way, demo has begun!
Lights? Oh yeah lights, we need those too!
We've just assumed we'd have can lights and some pendants, but as GW has done to us with many other things, it took our original assumptions and turned them upside down, and we need some help.
We will definitely have UCLs, Pendants over the island (maybe sink too). Or maybe we shouldn't have pendants and have a chandelier?
But for the general lighting? Seems that florescent tubes are the most efficient (unfortunately, the least sexy to us). So we are thinking of some flush/semi flush mount ceiling lights for the general lighting.
So we need some help in figuring out how we determine how many we need, what kind (not style, just kind, like CFL. LED, or what), and where to place them.
Let me sum up.
o - Should we use any cans?
o - Pendants or chandelier over the island (it will have seating for five in the L shape)
o - how do we determine how many flush mount lights to use and where to place them?
Here's a basic layout of the new kitchen: From Kitchen Design Plans
As usual here, I'm sure the answers to these questions will create more as well as begin to calm our nerves.
Thank you all.
