cree lr6 vs lr4
I thought I was sold on the LR6 cans for my kitchen until I went to a lighting store yesterday and was told that I should purchase LR4 cans because they "look nicer." The sales person told me that the light going straight down from the LR4 was brighter than the LR6 but that when the angle is increased, the LR6 is brighter. She said that I would need the same number of cans, regardless of whether I purchase the LR6 or LR4.
I've looked at the photometry diagram for these two lights in the CREE catalog. I'm not sure that I know how to read it, or whether I'm even looking at the right information, but it looks like the LR6 is brighter at every angle.
I agree with the sales person that a smaller can looks better, but I also need good light in the kitchen. Can someone give me some advice on this issue? This subject is far too complex for me.
