First of all, decide why you really want to install recessed lights in a particular room. For instance, if you want to install them in a working area, then you should space them evenly throughout the room, so that no shadows are visible. The same goes for kitchen lighting. But, if you want to install recessed lighting in living rooms or a dining area, then you may want to create some kind of a wall frame or artwork as a focal point of the room and illuminate them with recessed lights. Also, you will need to place the lights near the walls and make sure that the light fixtures are spaced at least 3 inches away from insulation. Lastly, you need to consider the interior painting theme. For instance, if the shades of walls and furniture are lighter, then you may need lesser number of recessed lamps, but if you have darker walls with leather furniture, then you may need more lamps. The spacing, placement, and arrangement of recessed lights mainly depends on the function that you want them to perform. Mentioned below are a few techniques that you could draw inspiration from.
If you are looking for a wall sconce for your bedroom, to assist in late night reading, this qualifies as task lighting. I would suggest choosing a sconce that shines down to help better illuminate the space.
When compared to incandescent bulbs, LEDs are a bit pricier because they offer more value for money in the long term. They have a longer life span, produce less heat and even come with technological features like remote controlling from a mobile device. The best way to get a fast return on your investment in LED bulbs is to replace a large portion of your bulbs with LEDs at the same time. You'll see significant drops in your energy bill in no time.
Used directly around features to be highlighted, directional lights are great as task lights and for highlighting artwork such as sculptures. Dimmer directional lights may be used to highlight paintings/photographs to prevent glare on the glass.
