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.
In these times of recessions, rising energy costs are surely pinching everybody. People are trying to find out ways to cut their energy bills. When it comes to lighting, most people start thinking of incandescent bulbs. In recent years, use of LED lighting has increased for many reasons. The most important here is they are low-cost. They use very little energy to give same power as the conventional bulbs.
It goes without saying that areas where you are going to be doing more than just sitting, require a special kind of lighting. If you are going to read, ensure that the light source is behind, or preferably, beside you so that you don't face any glare. Any light source directly above will cast shadows on your book and make reading difficult. In case of a study where you may be doing a lot of writing, the light source should be on the opposite side of your dominant hand to avoid shadows.
Eyeball: This trim is a versatile lamp for art lighting. It can be swiveled left to right as well as aimed up from vertical on a wall. It does protrude below the ceiling line, and so would be more visible.
