What is recessed lighting?
Recessed lighting is a light fixture that is installed flush with the surface of the ceiling. There are two parts to these fixtures. First is the housing, which is the main part installed and holds the bulb. Second is the trim kit and this is what gives the light an elegant finished look when properly installed.
Uses for Recessed Lights
- For rooms that need dimmers for added enhancement.
- Accent lighting, to add highlights to your homes best features.
- Task lighting in kitchens and baths to provide much-needed illumination.
- Spotlighting for walls or decorative art.
- Downlighting to brighten a room.
- Wall-washing, using lights to make the space look and feel bigger.
When not to consider Recessed Lighting
- To be the only source of lighting in any room.
- With cement or plaster ceilings.
- In rooms with decorative ceilings.
The number of fixtures needed.
There is no set number and to each’s discretion. However, our professionals can share about what has worked for other satisfied clients. There are many considerations when choosing the proper number of lighting fixtures. First, ceiling shapes, heights, angles and the square footage of the room. There are many types of fixtures, colors of light and different wattages each fixture can handle or that space will allow for. Also, different styles of bulb translate differently with watts, for example, led wattage is a fraction of that of normal lights and can be compared by lumens.
The proper spacing.
Proper spacing of fixtures is probably one of the most difficult tasks. This is why we spare no expense in the proper tools that allow for a perfect job every time. There are many measurement factors that need to be considered before the first hole is drilled.
It is easy to overload the circuits of a home by adding fixtures and is recommended that a licensed electrician be consulted this these types of projects.
