Lighting-how much is too much?

10 years ago

I need some opinions here. We are installing pot lighting in our small kitchen during our remodel. The space is 18'x12' with a half wall between the kitchen and family room and there will be a counter height 42" wall between the kichen and dining room and on that wall will be the range and a ceiling mount exhaust fan. I was thinking 6 pot lights are sufficient and two mini pendants over the range wall on either side of the exhaust fan. There will also be a peninsula 36" from the family room half wall and my husband thinks we need pendant lights there too. Then he also wants under cabinet lighting. What have you all done? This sounds like too much lighting to me but what do you think?
