Need help with laying out some recessed lights!

Hi all,

I could really use some suggestions as to where I might put some 3.5 inch recessed lights in my bathroom ceiling... I've attached a jpg of the layout. Above the vanity there is a 4 piece light set, and there is a light in the shower, it is just the rest of the bathroom I have to worry about. If you could take a look at the picture (It's to scale as much as possible, with the length being 15.7 feet total) and give me some suggestions, I'd appreciate it!

Since you are using the small recessed lights.... I'd use 3. Equally spaced from the door to the shower and the middle one centered between those 2. Don't forget... final placement is governed by the ceiling joists.

That is one layout I was considering, but was also thinking of putting 4 in a square pattern starting with one above the toilet, one near the opposite wall, and then same thing closer to the shower... And then one pretty much center of both doors, in the middle. Do you think that would be overkill?

You didn't mention how wide the room is but 4 together like that may be too close.

Ahh yes, the room is 15.7 feet (- the 2 foot 8 inches for shower) by about 5 foot 8 inches. So I suppose if I left them 1 foot from the wall on both sides, they would only be 3 foot apart... that might look a little weird, eh?
