How to Integrate Recessed Lighting into Home
Modernizing and updating the lighting in your Maryland home can be one of the most cost-efficient, effective, and interesting ways to renovate your space and add decor appeal. And of all your lighting choices recessed lighting is simple and effective both! But how can you integrate something like recessed lights or under cabinet lighting in your space without breaking up flow? The lighting and electrical experts at GAC Services are here to help!
Deciding Where You Want Your Recessed Lighting
Due to the versatility of recessed lighting it can play both major lighting roles, task and decoration, fairly easily. That means you’ll want to decide which rooms you want your lighting updates to take place, and what purpose the lighting is going to serve when it gets there.
Do you want additional task lighting in your kitchen? Easily done. More floor space in your living or bathroom areas? Also quite easy to accomplish with recessed lights, but you’ll want to decide where and why before you begin consulting with a lighting installation expert. This way you can start building an ideal budget, as well as have solid ideas when a consultation takes place.
The most popular places to add recessed lighting include:
- Kitchen areas for task lighting
- Bathroom lighting
- Ambient living and receiving room lighting
- Decorative and highlight lighting in art rooms or near major decor fixtures (paintings, statues, etc)
Adding Lighting Without Making it Overbearing
Another big thing to keep in mind is that you may need to subtract lighting in order to add lighting. Recessed lighting can play the role of companion to other lighting types, but when we’re talking about a finished home the odds are good that your current lighting scheme was completed already, so you’ll want to plan around it.
Some great ideas for this can include removing standard overhead fixtures in favor of recessed can lighting, or using recessed lighting systems to replace outdated track lights. Recessed lighting is also an excellent answer to replacing floor lamps, helping you both to illuminate space better and more evenly while saving valuable floor space.
In the end the best way to tackle a lighting project is to nail down some objectives. Do you want more visibility? More beauty? Do you want to get rid of that gaudy overhead fixture while losing none of its light? All of these are quite easy to accomplish, but knowing your goals going into a consultation, and working with lighting experts with the experience and skill needed, are the best ways to reach the end result you actually want.
Why Recessed Lighting Is Perfect for Integration
