How many recessed lights in small bedroom?


I have a small bed room that's 13' x 11'. I'm trying to figure out how many recessed lights to install. I'm thinking putting in four 4" lights evenly spaced apart from each other 5' apart. Then putting in a eyeball light in the center where my ceiling fan once was. And have it pointing towards the floor between the bed and closet.

Anyone have an opinion on this?

Do I need to change my spacing, or go to 6" lights?

First off 6" cans are ridicules, you can use the same size lamp in a 5" can, I personally would leave the fan and install 4 lights spaced equally or best the framing allows.
