Kitchen Lighting Layout


Hello, we are in the middle of a kitchen remodel and its time for the electrical and lighting work. I've had a few estimates and two of the electricians came up with the same recessed lighting layout.

They both want to do three pendent lights over the kitchen island (currently bring made). Then 5 recessed lights, two along the fridge/stove side and 3 along the right side of the kitchen. The light above the sink is staying, and the two current light fixtures are being removed.

Neither electrician recommended doing any recessed lighting on the left side of the island (they both said it would be too circular and its more of a "hallway").

What are your thoughts on this layout? Should there be lights on the right side?

Thanks!

I agree with them. Recessed lights don't do wide area lighting so having some on hte left doesn't really make sense in that space. Two out of two electricians is a good average to go by in my opinion.

I agree with them. Between the can lights and pendants, all your working surfaces are covered. I don't think you'll notice a lack of light in the "hallway".
