Your choice of lighting is important for the functionality and comfort of your home. Recessed lighting is just one way to achieve this. At Tim Kyle Electric, a Rosemont electrician, we understand the importance of ensuring your home is appealing and comfortable. Learn more about the benefits of recessed lighting.
The Benefits of Installing Recessed Lighting
Lights should be installed throughout a room to provide even and clean lighting. Recessed lights in your kitchen are perfect for island bars and countertops to highlight work areas. You can also create a sensational atmosphere by highlighting certain areas, such as your stovetop or a table, where your family often gathers.
The amount of lighting you will need is dependent on the size of your room. You should use one recessed light for each four to six square foot section of your ceiling. You can also use recessed lighting to accent the perimeter of your room while preventing any shadows. Your lights should be set approximately 12 to 18 inches apart. Our electricians will take the specifics of your room into consideration.
The next step is to determine the type of housing you want for your lighting. If you have insulation over your ceiling, you will need to use IC housings. For new construction, you also have the option of Non-IC housings. A mixture of wide-angle lighting provides you with ideal ambient lighting while dimmers allow you to control the mood and ambiance of your room.
Recessed lighting will make your room look and feel larger and brighter. You can use the light cast to accent specific design features such as a collection of art, your kitchen cabinets, or a special bookcase. Most importantly you can customize the appearance the your room by choosing the color of you lights and the reflectors and trim. You can even protect your home from excess dust!
