    We have 2no. batten fixings with a 2.3m high ceiling, so looking to install :
    Megaman Tego Dimmable 5W IP65 Colour Selectable Fire Rated LED Downlight
    The same ones I installed in our kitchen.
    I can't decide on the layout. We have a raking ceiling and opening for the stair.
    There are 2no. options I was thinking on the attached plan.
    6no. in as marked out in the green positions.
    or
    7no. as in the positions marked up in red?
    Or another layout?

    TIA

    It's not clear to me what exactly you're trying to achieve, the Green option looks better illumination wise but do you need to install spots?

    I can understand why one might install Spot/Down lights for local workplaces in a Kitchen but why do you need a number of local lighting points in a Lounge?

    If you sit in particular places and read there, local lighting might be advantageous - but a "Mother and Child" floor lamp might be a better solution.

    If you watch TV in that area, intense local lighting could be quite annoying.

    Apart from locations for reading, a more general "defused" lighting would be better in a Lounge (IMO).
