16ft Cathedral Ceiling Over Kitchen Island and Dining Area - Lighting

2 months ago

Newbie to this forum, but some experience and knowledge of lighting fixtures and design, now looking for advice.

Photo attached (second photo show view from living room (which has normal 8ft ceiling) into dining and kitchen)

New construction single family

Cathedral ceiling - 16ft at peak, 8ft at both sides

Rough in electrical already done based on idea of two parallel, 12ft tracks

Do 'not' want suspended or hanging or recessed fixture, like to have unobstructed view through

high trapezoidal windows.

Need to illuminate 4ft x 6ft kitchen island (includes two sinks, dishwasher, cabinets), plus surrounding kitchen floor maybe 3ft on each of four sides.

Dining area approximately 12ft x 20ft

Fixtures: Prefer small head, LED, black color, dimmable (Caseta basic Lutron dimmer wall switch)

Are there track fixtures available that enable indirect lighting too, as the ceilng is a nice tongue and groove knotty pine. I have seen some adjustable angle heads.

Any advice appreciated, and of course need to order asap.
