The Versatility of Recessed Lighting

indoor-recessed-lighting-images is one of today’s most popular ways to add additional lighting to a room without overwhelming a room with obvious light fixtures.  Its popularity is due in part to the clean, uncluttered look of recessed lighting.  When these lights are turned off, they are virtually undetectable since they are literally recessed into the ceiling of the room.  This gives a room a modern, stream-lined look when they are used for the primary lighting in a room, but you can also use recessed lighting in combination with other types of ceiling lighting in order to maintain a more traditional style.

 

There are several reasons to consider recessed lighting for your home.  Some of the best reasons include:

 

·          To highlight specific areas of a room.  If you have a large room that you want to visually divide into two separate seating areas, or a living room and dining area, install a few recessed light fixtures to break up the space visually without being obvious.  This allows you to keep the wonderful open feeling while still defining two distinct functions in the room.

 

·          To highlight a particular element in the room.  If you have a striking painting or sculpture in a room, recessed lighting can literally spotlight your artwork.  The impact of a particular focal point in a room is enhanced when it is flooded with light.  Directional recessed ceiling lighting gives you added versatility – you can direct the light at a focal point when you like, then adjust the direction of the light if you rearrange the room.  If you have a large element to highlight such as a painting or fireplace, it will look particularly striking if you use two or three recessed lights shining from different angles.

 

·          To give you task lighting. Recessed lighting is also great task lighting.  Installing a can light over a desk will give you great task lighting that won’t be blocked when someone stands by your desk or when you shift positions.  There’s nothing as annoying as trying to read and having your own head block the light from the table lamp!

 

·        To light up a high ceiling.  A vaulted ceiling can be lovely, but sometimes the height gets swallowed up by darkness, particularly at night.  Although you may want to suspend a chandelier in the center of the ceiling for drama, this won’t really provide enough light to reach the corners of the room, particularly if the room is large or the chandelier is hanging fairly low.  A few strategically placed recessed lighting fixtures can bathe the dark corners in light, giving the room a lighter, airier feeling and flooding the room with warm light even at night.

 

·          Improving the overall light available.  Some rooms don’t have the space for table or floor lamps, whether it is because of an awkward lay-out, lots of furniture or simply because the room is small and you don’t want to overwhelm it with lamps.  These rooms are perfect for recessed lighting when you don’t want large ceiling lighting fixtures such as chandeliers.  A few well placed recessed lights can give you uniform light throughout the room without giving up more precious square footage.

 

·          To give an illusion of size.  You can create the illusion of a larger room if you install directional recessed lighting that bathes the walls in light.  This creates an optical illusion that seems to enlarge the room.  This also helps if you have a room that has dark walls.  Flooding them will light will make the room seem more spacious and less oppressive.

 

You can get a variety of sizes and styles of recessed lighting, so talk to a knowledgeable sales person to find out which kind or recessed ceiling lighting will work best for the size of your room and the areas you want to light.
