Calculating lighting

Right now there is an 8x8 recessed incandescent fisxture that I have cheatde up to a 100 watt bulb, fixture says 60 watt max. Any suggestions for that area? The exterior door in that area has half glass and allows some natural light during the day.

Calculating lighting

I would do maybe 5-6 cans in the work areas, maybe a couple more over by the pantry...I think that area over to the bottom right is a pantry...Maybe a couple in the middle of the room...Or if there no eating area, maybe a fan fixture (as MDSHUNK suggested) or other type of fixture of your taste ...where are you going to have an eating area? Will you have an island? Because I too am a fan of the pendant lights for that. Since you have a lot of base cabinbets, it appears, you could do the toe kick lights...Under cabinet lights will be nice.
If you go to that link I suggested above it can tell you spacing in the work areas based on ceiling height, etc...

Hope that helps.
