Kitchen Lighting Design
I'm trying to work out a lighting design for our kitchen. I read the huge LED recessed cans guide, and would like to use 6" edison base cans and it sounds like Cree CR6 bulbs are the way to go. One thing that's unclear is whether the inside of the actual can gets covered up by the bulb so there's no need to worry about trim or anything?
Other things that may or may not matter... I plan on dimming with Adorne dimmers:
Ceilings are 8 feet high. The kitchen has no exterior walls. The closest windows are in the family room and dining room, to the top and right of the kitchen on the diagram respectively. Other lighting not shown is undercabinet and toe kick lighting. The solid pair of lines above the peninsula is a header between the two rooms; at this point it's unclear how low it will be but I'm assuming standard door height. Lighting came out to 35 lumens per square foot., ignoring all other light sources. Since the kitchen and family room are open to each other, does this change the amount of recessed lighting I need?
Here are the pictures... I appreciate any thoughts and comments!
Here's another shot to help get an idea of the layout of the area. The number of columns is still to be determined, depending on what we find once the wall that's currently between the kitchen and family room goes away...
