Lighting Plan Help

Posted by swensoca (My Page) on

Need some help with our lighting plan. Sorry for the crude image, did it in Pixlr online. Spacing etc isn't exact - just rough idea. All ceilings are 9'.

All fans are without light kits, the cans in all rooms will be Cree CR6 800 Lumen except in the two spare bedrooms which will be the 625 Lumen version. The bulbs in all other fixtures will be new Cree Bulb. The bedrooms all have what our builder calls racktrack ceilings - they aren't full boxes just two layers of drywall to create a stepped look but keeping the feeling of the ceilings higher. The photo shows the entry way as flush mount but that will most likely be semi-flush.

Some areas of concern is between the entry way and the living room. Not sure if need a can or flush mount in this area. In the kitchen not sure if there should be another can between the sink and the island. Also not sure if I should do 3 flush mount in the hallway with one added around the corner going into the spare bedroom and then move the other two back a bit in the longer part of the hallway.

Any feedback or ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Personally - I would up the living room to 6. And add something in the little hall leading to the living room. Since that's your foyer, just a box to hang a chandelier perhaps.
