Recessed lighting is also commonly referred to as can lighting, and it is installed above the ceiling in a “can” of sorts. Recessed lighting is a great option for nearly any room, home, or setup, and it truly offers a great number of benefits.
1. Sleek, Streamlined Appearance
You simply cannot beat the look of recessed lighting. It is sleek and simple, and it is perfect for both heavily decorated spaces and minimalist areas. Since there is no hanging light feature, you don’t have to worry about matching styles or designs, and you can simply enjoy the light that the sleek lights provide.
2. Strategic Lighting
If you’re not a fan of huge, bright lights that illuminate every corner of a room, you can opt for just a small number of recessed lights to offer pointed, strategic lighting solutions. Perhaps you want lights on your bookshelves but not on your TV, or you want them on your desk but not near your cough. Recessed lighting is the perfect solution.
3. Low Ceiling Solutions
If you’re tall and you’ve hit your head on a lighting fixture, we probably don’t need to elaborate here. But for those shorter folks with taller friends, take note—a lack of low-hanging lighting fixtures is an excellent gift to your height-endowed friends.
4. Equal Lighting
Just as strategic lighting is achievable with recessed lighting, so is even and equal lighting. You might want to light the perimeter of a room more thoroughly than a centrally-based lighting fixture can. Or maybe you want your kitchen island to have just as much light over it as your countertops and kitchen table.
No matter what you hope you achieve with the installation of recessed lighting in your home, be sure to fill those recessed lighting fixtures with the highest quality LED lights. LED bulbs combined with recessed lighting can provide money savings, optimal lighting, and overall satisfaction that can only come from a perfectly lit room.
