Help with Living Room Recessed Lighting
Great forum and lots of great info. I need some help though. I'm doing a major remodel and needed advice on recessed lighting in a 11'x15' living room. I was initially going to go with 4 - 6" halo lights, but then my electrician suggested going with low voltage lights. I looked at some 3" and 4" low voltage lights and liked the contemporary look to them, but concerned about the light output.
We were previously using a halogen floor lamp that shot the light to the ceiling and lit up the room very nicely. I'm trying to make sure that we get get similar lighting with the recessed lights. My thinking is that 4 - 6" high hats would do well in the room. Would I get similar light output from 6 - 3" or 4" low voltage high hats?
I really like the look of the smaller lights, but don't want to sacrifice light output. Everywhere I read they say the 3" lights are for accent and focus lighting, but can they be used for general if I have enough of them?
Thank you for the help in advance!!
