Need recessed lighting help for dining, living and bedroom
We live in a rowhouse, which means limited windows and potentially dark rooms. We have finally decided to pull the trigger and get recessed lights installed. I have a few questions from the GardenWeb experts.
1) We have an L-shaped dining room with track lighting that is relatively large and currently a bit multi-purpose (it's now serving as half a kids area). We are not going to commit to a chandelier or a ceiling fixture. I want to put in recessed lighting along the sides of the room (similar to where the track lighting is already) and later on, a chandelier could be added if desired (thinking about resale).
2) We have a smaller living room that does have a simple ceiling fixture but is dark. I want to sprinkle some recessed lighting in this room as well, but assume that recessed lights + ceiling fixture is OK?
3) Want to add recessed lights to our dark bedroom as well.
Are there any major no-nos with putting recessed lighting in this way?
Are there any useful rules of thumb to follow when determining placement of recessed lights?
