I am having my kitchen renovated in a few months and on of the many decisions is what size or style of potlights do I use. I currently have a florescent light fixture that is getting the boot. I have getting 3 potlights over an island. But over a counter, how many lights are recommended for a given distance of countertop? Should they be over 4 or 5 feet? I am not sure and am currently researching this. Also, are 3 inch lights recommended or should I go for a larger diameter? They will be the energy saver bulbs, not incandescent. Should I get the ones that tilt in the housing, or the ones that just shine straight down?
Lots of questions, but any suggestions or recommendations would be appreciated.
