Conventional lighting fixtures hang from the ceilings or walls. But recessed lighting is installed quite differently. First, the fixture's trim attaches to the ceiling, and then the housing fits into the ceiling, enclosing the bulb. Instead of extending from your walls or ceiling, recessed lighting comfortably sits inside while illuminating your space.

Have You Considered Outdoor Soffit Lighting?

Bring recessed lighting outdoors with soffit lighting. These fixtures bring subtle brightness to any home exterior without significantly increasing your maintenance responsibilities. Our team can fit these lights neatly beneath your roof's eaves, and soon enough, you'll be enjoying your lighting while hanging out in the great outdoors. Reasons to choose outdoor soffit lighting include:

  • Versatile placement and ability to accent specific areas
  • Waterproof and insulated components
  • Small size
  • Blends in with landscape features
  • Ease of creating a spotlight effect

The Best Places to Install Recessed Lighting

Recessed lighting works perfectly in so many spaces in your home. If you're hoping to brighten up your interior or exterior, properly placed recessed lighting can go a long way to achieving the look you have in mind. We often install these fixtures for the following purposes:

  • Accent lighting
  • Multi-use rooms
  • Areas that need dimmers
  • Spotlighting decorative elements
  • Task lighting in kitchens and bathrooms
  • Downlighting
  • Wall-washing that makes small rooms appear larger

Recessed Lighting Isn't Ideal Everywhere

We recommend recessed lighting all the time. While it's an ideal solution for some poorly-lit areas, it's not perfect for every situation. For example, if a space has no other light sources, recessed lighting may not be your best option. Most homeowners find these fixtures are better used as accent lighting. Moreover, not all designs and aesthetics lend themselves to recessed lighting. Spaces with concrete and decorative ceilings may need a different fixture for best results. If you aren't sure whether recessed lighting is a good idea, discuss your budget, timeline, and design goals with our experienced team.

Deciding Whether to Install Recessed Lighting

As you weigh your options for different lighting features, you'll need to consider various factors. Our team suggests taking a look at our lighting guide and thinking about the following before committing to one type of lighting:

Ceiling Condition

What condition is your ceiling currently in? Before we can install new lighting, we'll need to know what the ceiling's made of, what type of insulation it uses, and its slope.

Function and Aesthetic

Recessed lighting has two major benefits—function and aesthetic. These fixtures are excellent for providing all the lighting you need while offering stylish flair to any space. If you're interested in special features, we can discuss dimmers, additional switches, and adjustable fixtures. Ask us about any of these products:

  • Incandescent bulbs
  • Fluorescent bulbs
  • Energy Star features
  • Line voltage
  • Low voltage halogen
  • Standard halogen
  • Fire barrier housings
  • Multiple recessed spots
  • Swivel lighting
  • Downlighting
  • LED swivel lighting
Number of Fixtures Needed

Taking the size of your space into consideration, you may need anywhere from three lights to a dozen. Our team can work with you to determine the proper amount of lighting, accounting for room size, wattage, bulb type, ceiling height, and amount of natural light.

Room Layout

How do you want your lights spaced out? If you're dealing with a lot of square footage, you may need different spacings. Once you've decided on a number, our team can help you decide on the best layout.

Fixture Ratings

Bathrooms, kitchens, basements, and garages are all great places to install recessed lighting. However, if you plan to put these features in one of those rooms, you may need a fixture rated for moisture. Our team would be glad to answer your questions about popular products and their moisture ratings.

Electrical Capability

Here's where our expertise really comes in handy. We can evaluate your electrical system to determine whether it can handle the extra demand of recessed lighting. Once you're all clear for installation, our professionals will ensure everything is installed safely. In some cases, we recommend new circuitry as well.
