What type of recessed lighting for a small kitchen?

Help! I have an electrician installing the recessed lighting, but I'm afraid it's going to be the wrong type.

I want to use 4" lights, but what type of bulb should I go for? I don't want it sticking out, and energy efficient is a plus. My kitchen is pretty small.

Please be specific: halogen, florescent, etc... and bulb size: mr16, r20, etc..

Thanks in advance.

    Your most efficient bulb is LED (light emitting diode) followed by CFL (compact flourescent). The LED lights are somewhat more expensive and the CFL bulbs do not last a long as they should if you turn the lights on and off frequently. Your electrician should be able to give you some good advice. God Bless
