About recessed lighting

Recessed lighting is a type of lighting that makes use of lighting fixtures that have been built into the ceiling. They are different in that other types of lighting include fixtures that protrude from the ceiling. With recessed lighting, you can enjoy lighting that can help the space feel more airy and open, and this type of lighting also allows you to have a lot more lighting throughout the space because you can have the increased amount without having a lot of fixtures coming from the ceiling, which would look odd and overwhelming. 

Recessed lighting will save space — When you have all the lighting that you need for an area in your home via recessed lighting, you won't have a need for table or floor lamps, and this means you will have more free space. You can choose to use that space to put other things there or you can just enjoy the extra space. 

Recessed lighting is generally better distributed — Another great thing about recessed lighting is that it projects the lighting down and outward, and this can result in lighting throughout the space that is distributed in a way that lights up the whole area nicely and evenly, without a lot of dark areas or areas that are too bright. 

Recessed lighting can be installed just about anywhere — You can have recessed lighting installed in flat ceilings, sloped ceilings, and vaulted ceilings. It can be installed in small rooms, large rooms, and all-sized rooms in between. In fact, you can even have this type of lighting installed into a wall. 

Recessed lighting can target specific areas — Another thing many like about recessed lighting is that it can be used to direct target a very specific area in a room. The area you want to have lit up well can have the great lighting you want, while the area of the room right next to it won't be overly affected. This is good for times when you want to have an area that's bright without overwhelming the rest of the room, such as when you have a corner of a space you use as an office area.
