Recessed Lights: Worth it? Alternatives?
We're completely renovating our kitchen and rewiring the electric up to code. The general contractor wants $100/light, including materials, for our 170 sqft kitchen.
Do you think recessed lights are worth the investment? Are there alternatives that will look as good or better than recessed lighting?
Our ceilings are 9.5 feet high, and we will be installing ikea-style countertop rail lights under the wall cabinets.
Ikea also sells cabinet lights that recreate the effect of recessed lighting, but I can't tell if they're ugly or not. I'm still new to the world of kitchen lighting.
