Where should you put recessed lighting?
Recessed lights can be installed anywhere depending on individual needs. Recessed light can be installed in a particular room such as the kitchen, dining or living room. There are several guidelines to be followed while deciding the ideal place to install the recessed lights. Some of the guidelines include;
- The ceiling rule of thumb
It is recommended that you divide the height of your ceiling by two to know the spacing distance between your lights. You can use this guideline as to the basic guiding principle but ideal lighting will heavily depend on the darkness or brightness of your home décor.
- Do not create shadows in the corner.
To avoid shadow in corners, it is advisable to place your recessed lights at least three feet away from the walls. This will make your room seem bigger and brighter hence more welcoming.
- Use house plans or blueprints
You can use the blueprints or your house to pinpoint exactly where the lights will be installed.
- Determine a specific base point to place your lights.
Some areas of the house need to be lighter than others. For instance, a good area to place the lights in the kitchen is the area above the sink and cooking area.
