Recessed Light 101 lesson needed : New House
Building a new 3900 sqr foot house , 2 story.
1st floor is 10' and 2nd floor 9' ceilings.
Electrician suggested Halo 5" recessed cans for everywhere and the flourescents for the kitchen per code.
He said a recessed can is standard and I don't need to worry about type.
He also insists the 5" recessed lights are nice and that I should not consider the 4". He said the 4" has light too focused, and that we will need a ton more.
What do I need to do on recessed lighting?
My house has 80 in the plans but my contract with the builder has a budget up to 95 and all show flourescent in my plan (though I will do that only for kitchen I think).
What all should I consider and do?
Please help. I need to decide in next 5-7 days.
