Wiring recessed lights?


I am installing 6 recessed lights in my kitchen using remodel housings in three rows of two. Because I don't want to tear up my entire ceiling I have access from on end of all rows. When wiring these do I need to go 1-2-3-4-5-6 or can I go 1-2,1-3-4,3-5-6.

Thanks

You can run it in any sequence that works with your switching.

I'd suggest that you put one or two of those six lights on a separate switch.
So that the OTHER 22 hours a day you can still have enough light...
without having an operating room

Thanks,
These lights will be on a dimmer and there will be two pendants, under cabinet, and one over the sink if we need low light levels.
