I'm replacing old, ugly fluorescent lighting in my family room. There were three recessed 2 foot, 2 bulb fluorescent fitures in the ceiling which I removed. Now I have three 2 foot long by 7.5 in wide by 10 inch deep onpenings in the ceiling. My first thought was to purchase fluorescent fixtures larger than the opening and mount them flush to the ceiling. However, since it's a relatively low ceiling, another recessed-type fixture would probably work better. I've seen the round recessed lighting that is available. Would that work in this application? Are there other lighting fixtures that would work better? And what's the best way the close the opening in the ceiling that will remain after the new lighting is installed. Thanks.
