Overview - Ceiling recessed lighting
Recessed Lights Basics and Ideas Recessed lights are light fixtures which are installed in the holes of ceilings. Recessed lights focus the lighting in a downward direction. Recessed lights are good alternatives to chandeliers and pendant lights and you can use recessed lights to target your room’s best features. Recessed lights use low-voltage bulbs so these lights save money. And recessed lights are easy to place in the ceilings. Recessed lights also come in cute designs, shapes and colors. You can purchase these lights from hardware stores or online lighting retailers. Recessed lights are great for contemporary-themed homes and loft apartments as well as old-school townhomes. One great decorating idea with recessed lights is under-the-cabinet lighting. When you place recessed lights under the cabinets, you provide adequate lighting for your kitchen without resorting to large ceiling lights or bulky lamps, and this gives your kitchen a minimalist look. To save energy while using the recessed lights under the cabinets, use LED recessed lights. The look is softer than traditional lighting and it gives off less heat. In addition, it gives your kitchen subtle lighting that still offers enough light to help you see what you’re doing. If your basement has been dark and drab in recent years, it’s time to decorate it with a new theme and with unusually-shaped recessed lights. Recessed lights work great for basements because they offer adequate lighting to cover the basement and the brightness level isn’t too high. Your best bet would be to install two recessed lights in the basement’s walls because this is enough coverage. You can also play around with the color because recessed lights come in colors green, red and blue. If you get blue recessed lights for the basement, you can paint the basement walls a neutral tone such as gray or beige so the paint color won’t clash with the lights’ color. If you do outdoor work in your garage, recessed lights will provide the lighting you need for work without appearing too bright. Recessed lights are also helpful for helping you get around a cluttered garage without knocking things down, which could be hazardous. Depending on the size of your garage, you can install three recessed lights. Also place your recessed lights over areas of the garage that you utilize the most. For example, if you work on neighbors’ cars often, place the recessed lights over the workspace. If you have a walk-in closet, recessed lights are great to use because they allow you to focus the lighting on certain objects or furniture in your walk-in closet. One small recessed light would be sufficient for the closet since it’s a small space unless you have a larger closet. LED recessed lights are especially beneficial since they use less energy. Recessed lights offer a contemporary accent to your home and these lights take up less space than the bulky ceiling lights or even pendant lights. These lights look sleek yet they’re functional enough for your home’s needs. These lights are also big or small, and recessed lights save money in the long run.
