My new kitchen is 11.5 x 11.5. 8' high ceiling. U shaped with window over sink at one end and upper cabinets on each side. I will have a pendant over the sink and 2 or 3 small pendants over a moveable bakers table 6' x 18" (on wheels). I also have LED light strips with outlets under all upper cabinets lighting my counters.

Do I need anymore lighting in the kitchen or is that sufficient? I hate recessed can/pot lights but would be ok with the new LED slim lights.

Fawn Michel: I would generally say that you should have recessed lights centered about 26” out from the wall & about 4’ apart where you have base & wall cabinets.
