I am currently finishing my unfinished basement. I would like to create a look similar to this basement.
From the looks of it they are using 3 or 4" recessed lights with GU10 bulbs. I am planning to do the same. I found these (and many like them) 4" cans with GU10 bulbs.
I plan to use replace the halogen GU10 bulbs with 50W equivalent LEDs (probably the ones linked). I have just under 8' ceilings. I am thinking the bulbs should be 3' apart from what I've read so far, but I'm open to suggestions/corrections.
I know this bulb is typically used for accent lighting, but I want to use it for ambient lighting (in a basement recreation room/laundry). The picture looks like it provides enough lighting, but I can only tell so much from the picture. I realize its a subjective question in some respects, but I'm hoping somebody can weigh in with knowledge on how much light I can expect to get with said setup (vs say a typical setup with 6" cans 6' apart), and suggestions on how I can improve on the design (i.e. should I go with 2.5' spacing? a wider aperture then 38 degrees? etc.)
