Kitchen lighting plan: keep central flush mount?
Hello and Happy Mother's Day to all.
XP to lighting forum:
As our work commences soon, I wish to ask for your feedback on our kitchen lighting plan. The current plan is to remove a centered ceiling kitchen light and two eat-in pantry ceiling lights. All three ceiling lights align down the two rooms and offer diffuse task and path lighting.
Many GC's had advised replacing ceiling lights to both modernize the look of the remodel with the times as well as introduce for the first time recessed lighting: eight 4" recessed lights total: 3 along the sink-range run, 2 over the L wall cabinets at counter edge ( prior to the refrigerator itself), and 3 in the vicinity of the tall pantry cab (1) and at counter edge below glass cabs across from the pantry cab(2).
The "layers of light" are recessed lights, in-glass cabinet lights (4), under-cabinet lights (8) and an open-style chandelier (not light boxing) over eating space in front of the sold east window.
I have some reservations about removing the centered kitchen light. I'm not wild about recessed cans and won't dedicate them at this time to LED light solely. I want diffusion of light from our ceilings to offer path light. I'm okay with recessed diffused light in the tall pantry cab/near glass uppers (beverage center) without their being flush ceiling light.
Do you think I should keep or not keep a centered kitchen light, either flush or semi-flush to ceiling, to offer yet another layer of light and even form of light (incandescent)? What would you do?
Thank you for your comments: there is some sense of urgency here that I resolve this one persistent question.
