half the basement is refinished (for my sons "hangout") the stairs were really dark... and halogen recessed lights are small. They needed to fit under the stairs above. most other can lights are much to big to fit in the space.
I probably could have put 1 in the stairs and it would light the whole thing! lol... well im not re-doing the drywall now
so i will at the very least drop the bulbs to 20watt instead of 50. that should help
