I am going to be changing a bedroom ceiling rose into 2 different sets of downlights. The first set is the main room lighting and the second is in cabinet lighting. Both of which I would like to switch on using the same room switch.

My question is how best to add the second set of cabinet lights. Should they be added on to the end of the downlights loop or have their own wiring?

I have drawn 2 diagrams showing what I mean. Second set off the end of the main downlights Second Lights off their own wiring

The two lights in question are the main room lights:

And some mini downlights:
