dimmable high hats for kitchen??

ashikOctober 2, 2012

I am thinking that I will not need the high hats to be dimmable - will I be sorry? I will have four in my workspace - along with two hanging pendants over the peninsula - and then another two in the dining area along with either the existing tiffany chandelier or another 2 high hats. I just don't think I will be using the dimmer for mood dining.

Please share your advice and experience.

It sounds like you are installing fluorescent cans. Is that the case? What size are the cans?

Are you subject to code restrictions on the kind of lighting you can install, such as the California Title 24 requiements?

No restrictions - and I think they are 6" - and not flourescent - I believe they are the newer ones - that also might need the extra minute to come to full light?!

For the work area, no, I don't think you'll need dimmers. However, in the dining area, yes, get dimmables.
