Lighting for small kitchen
We are going to redo the lighting in our small (9'x11', 8' ceiling) kitchen. Currently there are two 9" square recessed fixtures on separate switches, one over the stove and one over the sink, with 26w CFL bulbs behind frosted glass, that do not put out much light. I want to take out those fixtures and replace with something that is IC rated and energy efficient.
I was thinking of something like the attached plan. Here, the yellow dots would be 6" recessed cans on a switch near the dining area, and the red dot would be on a second switch near the sink. The big green dot is a fan+light fixture in the breakfast area near the "south" end of the diagram. I was thinking of using LR6 lamps on a dimmer.
Does this look reasonable? I didn't want to overdo it with the can lights, so I focused on the work areas, but is this too unbalanced? Also I wonder if the light near the dining area is too close to that opening. Any suggestions on what to use for the sink light?
