We’ve been asked “Where should I put recessed lighting”?
I’m going to flip the question into “Where does recessed lighting work best”?
Recessed lighting works best where:
a) It is desirable for the light to shine through a “hole” in the ceiling with no visible fixture
b) You have no plans to ever re-aim the light
c) The location is no too close to the edge of your house where the down slope of the roof meets the wall (remember the recessed lighting fixture is in the attic and there must be enough clearance).
Having said that, there are lots of locations in your home where those conditions are met:
- In your kitchen when you do not have a need to occasionally move the light to shine at a different place (track lighting is great for that).
- In your family or living room above where people sit to read or watch TV.
- In your kids rooms above where they do their homework.
- Above your dining room table.
Any location in your home where the three above conditions are met is a perfect place for recessed lighting in your home.
And speaking of recessed lighting for your home ….. we would love to install some for you when you live in or near Monte Sereno.
