I've been reading a few of the LED threads on here and picking up some useful tips. Being now at the stage of rewiring my house, fixing up walls etc, I've got a blank slate for lighting solutions. Broadly, recessed bulbs in the kitchen and dining room (supported by uplighters in the living room) are what we're after, and I'm thinking of LEDs.
The various threads on the topic on STW seem to approach LEDs from the angle of retrofitting them to existing wiring/ halogen setups. What's the deal if doing it from scratch?
eg: is it still a case of the built-in transformer/ separate transformer/ 12V circuit choice? Do the pots benefit from being bigger (for heat issues)? Is there actually a better way to do it all unencumbered by halogen setups?
