Had an electrician put lighting into my media room (was the Den). He put in 4 pot lights (6 in) at 18in from the wall. We purchased the 65W equivalent LED Recessed Light Kits (retrofit) at 3000k white. With only 1 installed, found them way too bright. at “11 watts” I feel I need 4-6 Watt.
I did order one of the new GE dimmable’s that work with all lighting types… so here comes my question. What are people doing in equivalent situations? I see Cree has a 40W equivalent , and I (believe) I can get the Satin Nickel Matte Baffle Trim which gives me the same look, at least 25W equivalent softer… Though I was hoping to try and find a roughly 30W equivalent… Does anyone have suggestions? Am I thinking about this properly? I will admit, the Nickel trim looked amazing, and I look forward to it if I can maintain that look…
Suggestions? I intend to buy new bulbs (LED, or what-have-you) tomorrow.
