Kitchen Lighting Ideas

Posted by Enrico_Palazzo (My Page) on

Hello everyone, I have been looking around the site trying to learn from everyone else's posts, comments, and suggestions so I figured it was time to post my own project.

I have ordered my kitchen cabinets from the local HD and currently have the kitchen gutted. I'm trying to come up with a lighting plan, based upon the HD suggestions. They suggest 7 can lights, I would like to add 2 pendants over the peninsula and under cabinet LED lighting.
The can in the ceiling will be 6" with LED bulbs, was thinking about LED in the pendants to keep all of the color temps the same.

Any suggestions or location changes would be greatly appreciated, my electrician just flaked out on me so now I'm the electrician as well on this project.

RE: Kitchen Lighting Ideas

Knowing the layout of the ceiling joists and any obstructions above the ceiling is the first thing to figure out as that will impact the placement.

If you use the CR6 (ECO-575) or CR4 (ECO4-575) the color temp is ~ 2700k, very similar to warm white incandescent lighting.
There is a link to the LED UCL continuation inside the LED recessed can guide.
