wiring for recessed lighting
Afternoon, I need some assistance please. I am installing two sets of recessed lighting, each set will have its own dimmer switch. There is only one power line, a 14-2, that will power both sets. I currently have 14-2 running for each set. How do I connect the dimmer switches to supply power to both sets of lights? How do I wire the lights? Will I need a 14-3 wire? Thanks!

you should have your power going in to the switch box and then from each individual switch run a daisy chain line through that set of lights.

But I am not an electrician so maybe the pros can tell me if I am right or not.
