Lighting in your kitchen, properly like where to put the lights on the ceiling. That's a common question that comes up a lot, so you can see these. These are some down lights that I installed here when we raised the ceiling, so these are LED, wafer lights actually and they're only about a half inch thick, and so we don't use cans anymore. We just cut holes in the drywall and we put the LED wafer bites up. How far in front of the cabinets so I put them, and so we've done a lot of experimentation with that over the years, and I can tell you that many builders get it wrong. In fact, I have never once yet walked into a kitchen any project and seen that they got the spacing of these lights correctly, and by the way.
I came up with this plan here this drawing and it basically shows a bird's eye view if you were looking down from the unit up above as to what is going to happen on the ceiling here. So if you see all of these brown things here, these represent wood pieces. These are the furring strips or the strapping, the ceiling striping that we're going to put down. So these are two by fours that we're going to lay flat up against the ceiling and we're going to drill them into the concrete. Now here are our disc lights here and I'll show you those in a minute.
The disc lights are what we have to use here. They actually call them: wafer lights, they're led wafer lights and these will fit in the one and a half inch space. That's up in there and we'll per-wise their little cans where they're tiny little power supply cans. We don't use the big cans anymore for recessed lighting. These discs just clip into the holes that we're going to make in the drywall here and if you notice here, I make my spacing three feet from every wall, and this is where a lot of people drop.
The ball in kitchen lighting and that night we just went through this at my friend's house. The electrician came in and put like, for example, this light here like just inches away from the front of the cabinet, and when you do that, it creates too much of a harsh shadow that goes down onto the counter and you'll end up with darkness. Underneath your counters, so the way you overcome that is, you have your lights out three feet from the wall and that creates a nice wide dispersion pattern of lighting.
