Replacing kitchen floricent light with 6 recessed lights.


What type switch do I use to wire four of the cans to come on first and then if I want more light, for the other two to come on? How would I wire that? Thanks.

Put 4 on one switch and two on another

From what you are saying, you have an EXISTING light and will put 6 lights up.

You will have to rewire the switch box AND rerun/fish new wire.

Two switches is your option partner.
