Are 6 LED lights (65W equivalent) enough for 210 sq ft?

I have small living room and family room. About 210 sq ft for each room. Would 6 LED lights (65W equivalent, 640 lumens for Halo or 600 lumen for Lithonia Lighting) in each room be enough? I'd like to have 2 dimmers installed in each room, 1 dimmer controlling 3 lights. Is Lutron dimmer for LED good?

Thank you very much.

Not if the recessed cans will be the sole source of lighting. The thread below has more details.
