Kitchen Lighting

Last step to remodeling our kitchen is lighting. Any lighting experts out there got any recommendations for recessed, directional can lighting? We currently have "builder grade" 120w floods (recessed and fixed), but I'm looking for something nicer and directional (adjustable).

Thanks!

Re: Kitchen Lighting

I used all fluorescent lighting in my kitchen to reduce heat. I used recessed and undercounter for direct light and 4 footers above the cabinets for indirect.

Yep, already looking at those. Was hoping to flush out someone with experience, not just a Google Master.

Thanks. While I like fluorescent lighting, our decorator has advised us that it's not appropriate lighting given our large granite countertops.

Re: Kitchen Lighting

I am going to upgrade the lighting in my kitchen as well. I plan to replace the inset floods (probably like what you have, from the builder) I have now with a track system with multiple and aimable halogens (small, about 1.25" in diameter). My counter tops are shaded badly due to the cabinets and the placement of the existing lights, so having the ability to aim all the halogens will be nice. They are small, relatively efficient and they put off a good color temp of light, unlike flourescent or incandescent lighting...

I guess that helps you none, but I am in the market for stuff myself. The lowes near where I live had some cool setups...

Re: Kitchen Lighting

I put basic $6 halo cans in my parents house with the 1419 baffles and 110v undercabinet lighting. The undercabinet lights really show off your countertops and provide necessary counter lights.
The 1495 and 1496 baffles are nice also.

Cheaper and they look good in my parents house
