I'm finishing two rooms in my basement (13x10 bedroom, and a 19x8 living area), and I've come to the point where I want to install recessed lights. When shopping for the lights what are the things I should look at to decide which lights to purchase?
At the moment the ceiling is open, so I'm looking at both new and old work fixtures. The main selling points I'm looking for are "green" (so they should accept low wattage bulbs), and cost (I don't want to blow the budget on lighting, so price is important).
I'm currently looking at a contractor pack of fixtures from Home Depot ($58.97), but I'm not sure if this is the best course of action.
What factors are important when comparing and purchasing recessed lights?
