Kitchen Lighting Feedback
We will be doing a major kitchen remodel soon and I wanted to get some feedback on a new lighting layout. I really hate our current layout as it is so dark overall.
Attached is what I have worked out. It basically means starting from scratch. I want there to be plenty of light, but not overdo it.
General Lighting - eight 6" cans
Sink - one 4" can
Kitchen Table - one large pendant light
Island - two small pendant lights and a vent hood with its own lights
Under Cabinet - LED strips
The 6" cans are spaced about 4.5 ft apart. The old layout had far fewer cans and they were centered over the front edges of the counter tops. I moved them out a foot past the counter top edges to better light up the walkway but also provide some lighting into the cabinets.
The kitchen is 13.5 ft x 19 ft. The ceiling is just shy of 9 ft.
Any feedback on the layout and size of fixtures would be appreciated.
