Don't have much money to spend on lighting in this house. There is flourescent lighting in all the bathrooms and in the kitchen with that cheap plastic covering over it. I'm sick of it! What I was thinking of doing is pulling out the flourescent lights, painting the recessed area where they are, and put in tract lighting with pendants hanging maybe a couple inches below the recessed area. Is it possible to use the existing power source for tract lighting? Will this yield sufficient lighting for these areas?
Thanks for replies!
