kitchen light and layout

new construction. Kitchen is about 13ft by 15ft with a 9 ft white plybead ceiling. In the pic you will see pendants in pink, undercab and overcab in green and cans in yellow. All this is in the planning stage almost ready for framing.

Notice, a can is over the sink. Would a pendant work well there? Not sure what to use there really.

Im posting here so I can include a pic.
What are the thoughts on this light and kitchen plan ? What type and size of cans should be used? What Bulb types as well. I was thinking dimmable cfl of about 800 to 1000 lumins per bulb since Id like my power meter to stay together. Are other types of bulbs better for this with low energy requirements? The house is two story so the kitchen is on the first floor with conditioned living space above. The area between floors will be fully insulated as well.

Any advice on the light plan as well as any thoughts on the kitchen layout itself?

RE: kitchen light and layout

If it's not too late and you haven't already done so, I suggest posting this on the "Discussions" side of Kitchens. This is the "Gallery" side that's more for finished kitchens and the like. The Discussions side of Kitchens is for on-topic discussions concerning kitchen remodels. You will most likely get many more responses over there.

(You can post pics on the Discussions "side" as well, btw.)

Good luck!
