Unique bar light situation
I have a 42" high bar in the basement that is 70" long, and then turns at 45 degrees for another 51". Our ceiling is only 91". I currently have 4 recessed lights above the bar. The first one is 11" from the wall (wall to center of light). The second and third recessed lights are spaced 24" apart (from center to center). The fourth one is 27" from the third. Also, the fourth light is 13" inches from a soffitt that covers our heating system which is only about 76" from the floor.
I want to put the pottery barn rustic small pendants above the bar.
So, the first question is: with this unique situation is it best to keep the recessed lights?
If the answer is no than how high from the counter top should the pendants be hung? Is there a better ceiling spacing? I think 3 pendants rather than 4 but that would leave 41" of the bar with no lighting - on the side of the bar that is 51".
I could post a picture if that helps.......thanks so much!!!
