    I’m installing 6″ recessed lights for my basement. Which layout is better? I havr no other lighting but this. Note the 8 lights cannot follow the “3feet away from corner rule”.

    I would go with the 8 can layout and put them on a dimmer switch. The 8 can ensures plenty of light in the space and the dimmer will let you adjust the light so it isn’t too much.

    I agree with you on this , dimmer switch will give you the flexibility in case he finds it to bright

    Use the 6 can layout but put two additional cans in the center of the layout for 8. more even light and then use a dimmer in case it is to bright at times.
