I need a recessed light plan for my kitchen remodel. Help!
We are doing a DIY remodel of out kitchen. My husband will wire and install LED undercabinet lighting. We also want to redo the recessed lighting since the kitchen layout is changing.
We currently have 6" cans in the kitchen. We are tearing out all of the sheetrock in the kitchen ceiling in the cabinet/island area. So pretty much anything is possible I guess.
We will probably have 2 pendant lights centered over our island. What I really need help with is where to put the recessed lights/what kind (LED seems popular)/what size and where exactly they should go (how far out from the wall?).
Here is a vision of what the finished kitchen will look like
And the exact layout
Since we already have 6" cans it would be nice to reuse those and just get new trim kits for them. Can that be done? I've seen a 5" trim kit at Lowes that can fit into a 6" housing. Our current recessed lights are black inside which I hate. So I definitely want to get rid of that. I will buy new housings if thats what it takes.
