Let's talk Lumens-4200
Ok I am confused about whether I will have enough light in the kitchen 10 x 12 room(35 lumens sq/ft x 120sq ft=4200 ?)
2 upper cabinets on one wall, 2 towers on the other wall , it's wired for:
1)4 pendants total, 2 along each wall of cabinets 75w max per pendant
2)ceiling fan in middle of ceiling(I have to check max. w.)
3)under cabinet lighting: 1 outlet above each row of uppers/towers, 1 junction box below for each tranformer hookup.
2 light switch on uppers wall (1 switch for under cabinet (task lighting) and 1 switch for over cabinet lighting) and 1 light switch for (under/over) towers
I realize that CFL bulbs in the pendants will produce max. light using less watts, but I do not like them. Will 75W incandescents in pendants/fan and flourescent or LED undercabinet lighting be sufficient ?
Can you use CFLs and incandescents interchangeably in any pendants that lists incandescent bulb ?
Doing a rough calculation with 5--75w (pendant&fan light) I am at 4000 lumens. Thank you
