Spot/track lighting in very small kitchen

new.beeOctober 3, 2012

I'd like to replace the boob lamp in a very small galley kitchen (5'8" x 6'9") with IKEA spot/track light. Do I need a 3-spot or 5-spot fixture? The 5-spot is 52" but can be arranged at angles, the 3-spot is straight and 28 inches long.

5-spot http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/20230769/

Here is a link that might be useful: IKEA 3-spot

I'm not a lighting expert but I'll help bump this along. Are you using the lighting for task or for general illumination? Do you have other lighting in the kitchen (under the cabinet, etc.)?

I can't tell what wattage of bulbs go into these fixtures but is your lighting level OK with your old fixture or do you need more light in better locations?

Have you considered any other fixtures besides IKEA? There's a lot of track lighting options out there.
