It is becoming almost essential to have recessed lighting, as it can make a normal kitchen or dining area look like something out of a magazine – at a fraction of the cost of a full kitchen makeover. To get that modern look you’ve been wanting, consider track and recessed lighting to change the ambiance of a room and bring out the features you want all your guests to see.
Recessed lighting is just as it sounds – the light is situated within the ceiling to create the effect of the light coming through a space in the roof. If the area above the ceiling is accessible, such as an attic, this can be used for the installation of the light housing. The type of housing to be used depends on whether the housing will be in contact with insulation in the ceiling. The other thing to check when selecting housing is whether it is designed to be installed before the ceiling is in place, or if it is for an existing ceiling.
