Recessed lighting - how far from walls?
We are working on the eat-in portion of our kitchen. We will be installing recessed lighting in the eat-in area. (We will also install a separate lighting fixture over the table.) We have already completed the cooking area of the kitchen. In the cooking area, the lighting placement was determined by the counter tops and "washing" the woodwork of the cabinets. However, we do not want to highlight / wash the plain, less than perfect walls in the eat-in area. On the other hand, we don't want to pull the lights so far away from the walls so that the walls are in the dark and the area feels like a cave. So, how far away from the walls should the recessed lighting be? Thanks.
