kitchen lighting - photo included

bearandmegSeptember 22, 2012

Id like to put 5" cans on the perimeter and 2-3 pendants over the island. Just not sure of how many and placement.

Some measurements:

Room size is 14'x15'. Island is 36"x84".

Windowside is 163" Range is 30". Window is 36". Sink is 30". Hood is 26" deep.

Bar side is 75" from cabinet face to counter edge. There are 2 21" glass door cabinets flanking a 36" wine rack.

The room is open to the dining room. The cans will be on a 3 way dimmer accessible from both entrypoints. Same for the pendants.

There will be undercabinet led strips separately switched.

Sorry about rambling, 1st post on this and not sure what/how much info to include. Posted in lighting section as well in case thats a better forum.

Can email overhead diagram if that helps.

We put in 5 inch cans but learned it limited options in the LED world. If I had it to do over, I would have used 6 inch cans. Fortunately DH decided on the 3000K vs 2700k. He thinks light should be white. 2700 looks more like standard bulbs and less options for 5 inch.
PS I decided the 3000 are fine.

Bearandmeg - yes, please post planned overhead diagram. We too used the 6" Crees, but the 2700's, vs. a2gemini's (warmer light). These are very powerful lights and can dim down to 5 percent, with the right dimmer.
