Where to place cans over a bi-level counter?

glostadaveOctober 13, 2011

Hi friends,

We have plans for a bi-level counter on a peninsula. The cans are being installed tomorrow and electricians suggested putting cans more over the center of the entire counter width, not centered over just the raised part, like we have in the architect's drawing. What do you think?

The change may mean that less shadow from the raised part is cast on the main counter. I should mention we have 9 foot ceilings, so the beam will be wide and diffused by the time it reaches the counters. The cans are CREE CR6 LED in Juno housings.

Having second thoughts,


Here is a link that might be useful: plan and mockup of counter

We decided to align the two cans right over the place where the two levels meet. We'll let you know how it turns out.
