Subsequently, one may also ask, what is the best type of recessed lighting?

For high-intensity light, especially in a small area, halogen often works best. For warm, general lighting, most people prefer incandescent lamps. LED light bulbs can combine several of these characteristics.

Secondly, how many can lights for a 12x12 room? The typical rule-of-thumb is 24" from each wall, and then 3-5 feet between cans. So in a 12' room you'd probably want two rows of lights. Considering it is a bedroom and you don't need it as bright as a kitchen, you can probably get away with 2 rows of 4 lights for a total of 8.

Thereof, should I use 4 inch or 6 inch recessed lights?

Size and Layering Size recommendations say to place 4-inch lamps 4 feet apart and 6-inch lamps 6 feet apart. However, these are general guidelines. Smaller task or accent lighting using 2-inch or 3-inch lamps can work in conjunction with well-placed general recessed lighting.

Are LED recessed lights good for kitchen?

Recessed Lighting To avoid reflected glare on shiny countertops, it's best to avoid direct downlights; cross-illumination can help in this case. If you have existing cans, LED retrofit trim kits and/or retrofit LEDs bulbs are a great option; they come in a wide variety and are easy to install.
