4 Benefits of Installing Recessed Lighting
Whether you are looking to update your home or installing lighting in a new property, choosing the right lighting fixtures is extremely important. Lighting plays a big role in setting the tone and ambiance of your space, so the type of fixture you select, as well as the placement, requires a lot of thought and careful planning. However, with so many options available, it can be overwhelming to determine what choice is best for you and your family.
While many lighting options protrude down, recessed lights install directly into your walls, ceilings, or other surface and beautifully illuminate your home without disrupting the design and flow of the space.
1. They save space
Most types of lights take up precious room in your home, but recessed lights are tucked away and fit in seamlessly with your existing surfaces. This is especially important for smaller homes or rooms where every inch of space counts. They give more breathing room without sacrificing the amount of illumination needed.
2. Makes a room feel bigger
As recessed lights take up minimal space, they can make the whole room feel bigger, compared to more clunky fixtures that protrude from the ceilings and interrupt the visual space. Because of the way these lights are installed, they wash the home’s walls with overlapping, ambient light, making the room feel both larger and brighter.
3. They will never go out of style
Recessed lights have been around for decades, and are so simple in their design that they can fit in with any home style. They are sleek and unobtrusive and are versatile enough to complement and enhance any aesthetic. Plus, their customizability through size and color options makes them even more suitable for whatever space you need lit.
4. They are a safer option than hanging lights
Recessed lights have built in protection from normal household dust and debris that can come in contact with more exposed lighting options and run the risk of leading to house fires. Additionally, they are more tucked away from children and pets which means they are less likely to be subjected to accidents and breaking. When installed properly, they require very little maintenance and can last for decades.
