When asked about a cost effective electrical upgrade, an electrician and professional electrical engineers will recommend installing recessed lighting. In fact, this is the most common upgrade on lighting fixtures that homeowners opt for whenever they are going through a home renovation.
There are many reasons why many homeowners opt for recessed lighting. They are most particularly popular among homeowners, who have small homes or smaller rooms in their homes. The primary reason for this is probably because of the ability of recessed lighting to make a room feel bigger and more spacious.
Benefits of recessed lighting
Many electrical contractors and electrician in Myrtle Beach will agree that homeowners gain a lot from installing recessed lighting. They do not have to replace all their light fixtures to recessed lighting. Just a couple of additions in a room will help expand the room and create more space.
Here are some of the most common benefits of installing recessed lighting:
1. Recessed lighting takes up less visual space
When installing recessed lighting, an electrician will place the light can into the ceiling; thereby, taking up less visual space. Nothing is hanging from the ceiling are sticking out of the walls. This is what actually makes a room feel bigger and more spacious. Less clutter on the ceiling and walls allow you and your guests to enjoy the visual appeal of the room and your entire house without any obstructions.
2. Recessed lighting offers different trims
Whatever type of ceiling you may have, you can still use recessed lighting due to their different trims. You can choose from wall washed trims for flat ceilings and if you have a sloped ceiling, you can use the eyeball trim. These trims allow your recessed lighting to cast the most light throughout the room. Thus, even if you install only a couple of recessed lighting, you will still have a well-lit room. These trims are built with a directional reflector and a light scoop that allows the most light to reflect throughout your room.
It is important that you hire a professional electrician to help you install recessed lighting. Note that they need to be properly spaced from each other and from the walls. The height of your ceiling should also be considered when calculating the amount of space in between each lighting fixture. Aside from this, the lighting should be placed in each tin can to maximize the effect of the directional reflectors so that it will cast overlapping light on your walls. And only a trained and skilled electrical contractor will be able to properly install recessed lighting considering all these installation requirements for you to be able to maximize your use of recessed lighting.
3. Recessed lighting can be used to highlight a space or area on your wall.
If you have a great wall art or a wall bookcase or perhaps a cabinet with your special collection, you can use recessed lighting to highlight them. Either you want them to be the focus of attention in the room, which is most especially beneficial if you are having guests or friends over for dinner or lunch.
4. Recessed lighting come in various colors and sizes
The primary reason why recessed lighting is often used to upgrade a room is probably because they come in a wide variety of colors and sizes. You can mix and match the sizes, colors and types of the trim, lights and reflectors to match whatever theme or style you may have in your room and to serve whatever purpose you need from them.
5. Recessed lighting is a safe option for families with children and pets
Recessed lighting fixtures are installed with a casing that protects it from dust and pet fur; thus, expanding the lifespan of your lighting fixtures. Also, considering that this type of lighting is installed into your ceiling, they are safe from being damaged and accidentally hurting your children and pets.
