When adding can lights to your kitchen there are many things to consider. If you have a 2 story house, it will be more difficult to install them than if you have a 1 story home and the cost will be greater. Also, if you are replacing a large flourescent fixture that has been there since the home was built it is very likely that there is no texture and paint behind it. You may be able to get the texture to match but the color of the ceiling will be very difficult to match if it is older than 5 years old. Also, there are many different types of can lights available so take your time when choosing the right number of cans and right type of bulb for the application. The simplicity of can lights can add to the beauty of your kitchen, make sure to plan accordingly when working with your contractor.
