Tips on recessed lighting

Arranging recessed lighting

Recessed lighting is a good way to illuminate a room without sacrificing space overhead. Tall people with low ceilings can particularly benefit from this.

There are a number of guidelines to getting the most use out of your recessed lighting. The space between recessed lighting fixtures should be about half the width of the ceiling, but they should also be at least two feet from the walls. You might want to arrange the lights or use adjustable lights in such a way as to highlight a specific part of the room.

Then there is the question of how much power to use. According to interior designer Gabriele Di Stefano, the wattage needed to light the room is the area of the room in square feet, multiplied by 1.5. Dividing this number by the wattage of the bulbs you plan to use will tell you how many recessed lights you need. Dimmer switches give you the ability to control the light level. If this is a room where you both work and entertain guests, such as a kitchen/dining area, this will give you the ability to create a reassuring level of light for guests or a brighter level of light for working.

If you happen to be in the home of a friend or neighbor in the Fort Mill area and you see an example of recessed lighting that looks particularly good to you, try to get the name of the residential lighting contractor who did the work. They may be able to do something similar for a room in your home.

Qualities a residential lighting contractor should have

Before hiring a residential lighting contractor, check the web site of the professional licensing board of your state, and check to make sure the contractor has liability and workmens compensation insurance too. When looking at contractors who install recessed lighting, try to find one with a good reputation and a lot of positive customer testimonials. Ask friends and neighbors in the Fort Mill area if they can recommend anyone. A contractor who has been in business for ten to twenty years is a contractor you can trust. Do not hesitate to ask a contractor for references. Try to get more than one bid on any given project, and avoid the ones that seem suspiciously cheap or expensive.
