Recessed lighting alone enough for kitchen
We are in the midst of remodeling a small kitchen (10' x 12') in an old home and was wondering if we go the route of recessed lighting, would that be enough light to supply for the kitchen?
I personally have no experience with recessed lighting, but i do know alot of people use it as secondary lighting. This would be my primary lighting install in a suspended ceiling. We currently have a ceiling fan in the center, and want to do away with a single-fixtured lighting unit.
So my questions are:
Is this something worth considering?
Can you buy different brightness of lights for recessed?
Is there anything i need to watch for being that it will be installed in a suspended ceiling?
From my reading, it sounds like i would want 4" recessed on every alternating ceiling block. That would give me 6 in the center of the room. would that be enough?
