What Is Recessed Lighting?

This lighting fixture is installed directly into your ceiling or wall for a low-profile appearance. It includes a housing where the electrical connections are held and a decorative portion visible to your space. It may consist of reflectors or shades that help disperse the light. Before installation, it’s vital that you take into consideration the room you’re using them in. In unfinished areas like an attic, they can be bright construction lights. However, in a finished area like your kitchen, you need an IC-rated light to prevent overheating.

Once you’ve decided where they will be installed, you should choose a trim that meets your functional and style requirements. Trims can range from metals to decorative and plain finishes depending on the amount and type of light you need. Baffle trim reduces glare and provides softer light in living areas, and reflectors maximize light and direct it downward for task lighting in the kitchen. Eyeball trim lets you change the light’s direction to accent essential areas or decor. The professionals at Douglas Electric can help you make the right decision for your space when you need expert recessed lighting in Rancho Cordova.

Pros & Cons of Recessed Lighting

Lighting is an essential element to the functionality of your home. 

Here are the benefits of using recessed lighting:

  • Uniform light
  • Discreet styles
  • Spotlight capabilities

Many homes choose recessed lighting because it provides bright, uniform light in essential areas like kitchens, living rooms, and closets. Since these lights are in your ceiling instead of hanging down, they’re discreet and don’t get in the way of tall cabinets or appliances. Though it may seem that all recessed lighting is the same, there are various options, like eyeball or reflector trim, that may work better depending on the location and use of the light.

Recessed lighting can also be used as a discreet spotlight for art pieces or other objects that are conversation starters in your room. Let us enhance the ambiance of your space.

A few disadvantages of recessed lighting include:

  • Ceiling changes
  • Unidirectional

Recessed lighting can take an all-or-nothing approach, as your ceiling must be modified to include these lights. Though it’s not impossible to install them after building, installing this lighting during new construction or a remodel before your ceiling is replaced can be easier and more affordable. Recessed lighting typically only works in one direction, so it may take multiple lights to brighten your space correctly. However, our professionals can help create a functional and affordable design to meet your lighting needs.
