Recessed Lighting

When remodeling a space or involved with the design-build process of a new home, it is important to remember that lighting really can be everything. Choosing the best lighting for a room or area can completely transform the look and feel of the space. Of your options, recessed lighting is amongst the most versatile and can work perfectly in several areas throughout your home.

What is recessed lighting?

Recessed lighting fixtures are installed into a hollow opening in your home’s ceiling. Sometimes referred to as “can lights” or “down-lights”, a recessed light will give the appearance of a beam of light shining through a hole in your ceiling. Though these lights may seem very inconspicuous in nature, you will be happy to learn that looks can be deceiving as each of these little lights is very powerful! The light from these fixtures can be concentrated downward to work as a broad floodlight or as a spotlight for featuring a favorite work of art or specific area of a room.

A large ceiling mounted lighting fixture can work as the main source of illumination for a kitchen, garage or bedroom, but that would not look attractive in your home’s entryway, dining area or family room. Because of this, many homeowners choose recessed lighting fixtures to keep their spaces looking bright and beautiful.

Why choose recessed lighting?

Though there are a wide range of styles and shapes available for ceiling fixtures, recessed lights take less space and illuminate specific areas. They are perfect for small spaces where any type of protruding object may seem to “shrink” the room. Built into the ceiling, they will provide ample lighting without consuming any extra space. They are also ideal for rooms or spaces where aesthetics is preferable to large, bulky lighting fixtures.

Beyond cosmetic advantages, recessed lights are also highly functional. Many cooks love being able to position down-lights over prep areas in their kitchen for optimum illumination. Recessed lights also work wonderfully when placed over bathing or showering areas in your bathroom. Many homeowners find can lights to be ideal for home office spaces or over sinks, creating the perfect amount of task lighting. In addition, recessed lighting can create magnificent accent lighting for your favorite pieces of art, for family rooms and even sleeping quarters. There’s really no place that these versatile fixtures won’t work!
