How far apart to space 75 watt halogen recessed cans?
Hubby and I worked on lighting over the weekend. We are using 5" HALO cans with 75 watt halogen bulbs. We have ceilings just under 8'.
I wanted to put the cans right above the counter top edge but there was a beam there. So, I had to move them...chose to move them closer to the cabinets because I didn't want them on top of my head.
Then we ran into some more beam issues next to the stove. Plan was to put the cans on the edge of the 36" stove...so not directly over. I had to move the cans 6" from the edges of the stove. So, now we have 48" in the middle of the cabinet run with no lighting. Should I put a light directly over the range? We will have a wood hood. If yes, should it be in the same line as the other lights or maybe further back from the stove so that it is coming from more behind me?
The rest of the lights are spaced about 33" apart. Does this seem right?
