If you thoughtfully arrange your kitchen-installed recessed lights, you'll be able to brighten the insides of your kitchen cabinets instead of illuminating the space above them. To take advantage of this recessed light capability, place your lights as far away as 18 inches from your cabinets' faces and no closer than 12 inches.

To avoid an annoying strobe effect, don't install your recessed lights anywhere near a ceiling fan's blades. If you must, install your lights slightly closer to your cabinets to give them at least a 9-inch clearance from your fan's blades.
