I am remodeling my house and am working on the kitchen at the moment which is located on the first floor, obviously. While I have seen recessed lights on the first floor, what precautions did I need to take? I have 2x10 joists and plan on using IC fixtures but is there anything else I need to do? Everything I read is related to recessed lights with the upper part in attics, etc.

Thanks in advance.

There isn't really any precautions when you are remodeling your kitchen lighting. However I would caution to make sure your wiring is neatly done and there is no live wires. Where are you getting your low voltage lighting from?
