Recessed lighting placement? X-post
I posted a similar question in Building a Home, and live_wire_oak was kind enough to even do a mock plan for me, but I still have some questions.
Below is the cabinet layout for the kitchen. We will plan on doing pendants over the island and over- and under-cabinet lighting.
I keep see conflicting things--should the cans be just about the countertop edge (26-30" from the wall) as I found on this guide, or should they be in the isle as live_wire suggested? I suppose with undercab lighting, isle lighting is not likely to cause shadows?
The other consideration is the we will have fairly dark burgundy cabinets, and I've read on here that recessed lights can light up cabinets really well. Will lights in the isle accomplish this? Thanks for any ideas you can give!
