Need Help/Advice - Kitchen Lighting Plan

Hello everyone, great forum and been reading a ton but finally thought I would post my own reno question. Redoing part of our kitchen and need help with the lighting plan.

I have attached an sketch of the part of the kitchen in question with 2 proposed lighting plans. I am going with 6" recessed lights for now, but ideally would like to get down to 4" as you will see in the diagram rafters and skylights are making my life difficult.

Over the bar area, I will also be putting in 3 pendant lights, all cabinets have under cabinet fluorescent lighting.

Here is the link:

Any advice, alternate plans, etc. would be appreciated.

Thank you.

Option B seems better. Except maybe for lining up the 2 lights on the fridge side counter with the others.

Have you considered the possibility of using the ECO4-575 (Cree CR4) 4" recessed lights?
