DWQA QuestionsI\’m in the process of remodeling my kitchen.

I’m in the process of remodeling my kitchen. I was going to go with some led lights but I don’t quite know which size to use and spacing. I don’t want any dark areas. I do know from reading on past posts that daylight bulbs should be used. Any help?

6k daylight bright are the brightest you can get. I got strips and they light up my entire house I cut and soldered new wires on them and spread them through out my home and I dnt have a dark spot in the house. I put them in base boards bottom side of my stairs. In between exposed rafters. You would be surprised how much light they put off

As a lighting specifier as part of my day job, use color temperature instead of ‘warm white’ ‘cool white’ and so forth. A 2700k bulb is close to an old tungsten bulb. Halogen light is close to 3000k which I prefer. The larger the color temperature number the bluer the color, the lower the number the warmer the light. Lumens is the LED light intensity. A CRI ( color rendering index) is how well colors appear. Use a 90+ CRI for cleaner colors. More light sources with lower lumens will give a more uniform lighting work space. Higher, brighter light sources cast stronger shadows. A combination of task light with directional and ambient light sources will give you a shadow free work space.
