Why Use Recessed Lighting?
When lighting a space, you need to consider the amount of illumination needed for the area as well as the amount of space available to you. In some parts of the home, you don’t want the lighting fixtures to protrude into the area. For example, a hanging light just does not work in a space with a shorter amount of headspace or lower ceilings. This is when recessed lighting works the best.
Why Choose Recessed Lighting for Your Living Area?
Recessed lighting is just what it sounds like. These types of light fixtures do not protrude or hang, but rather they are recessed, or set in the wall or ceiling. As a result, these lighting fixtures can sit nearly flush with the surface. This allows for the light to illuminate the space directly under it and is the ideal choice for those dealing with limited square footage or ceiling height.
Before You Make a Purchase
Before you buy this type of lighting, consider the size that is appropriate for any existing recessed space. If you are installing new lights from scratch, choose a width and overall design fitting to the space based on the amount of light you need. Most of the time, this is the type of project best left to a professional (after you have purchased the appropriate light fixture, of course).
The good news is that recessed lighting can be an excellent addition to any space. It illuminates a hallway and works well in the kitchen when you want to add light under the cabinets or over a bar area. Now that you understand the benefits of recessed lighting, it’s time to choose the style, colour and shape of the lighting and come visit us in the showroom.
