Later this summer we're doing a complete gut of our kitchen and dining room. Tearing down walls etc. I've been planning on recessed, small halogen lights for the ceiling lighting. Our builder, who is totally cool with going along with me, nonetheless said that halogen doesn't put out as much light whereas I thought they put out more light. Also he said each fixture will run $150 or more. Any advice from those of you familiar with lighting? TIA.
