Experts suggest that any room should have 3 different sources of light that include soft, bright, and task lighting. One light source is rarely enough, even in smaller living rooms. You need more than one source and more than one type of light, and you need more than one fixture to exude the charm that you desire of your living room, quite similar to one you may have seen on your favorite dcor website or in your favorite decorating magazine. So, think floor lamps, table lamps, wall sconces, recessed lights, chandeliers, pendant lamps, and reading lights. Remember that any one of these sources will rarely be able to provide sufficient lighting for any given space, but when used in combination, will lend a luxurious appeal even to the smallest of spaces.
In this technique, one wall of the room is completely illuminated with recessed lights. Most of the time, it typically highlights a piece of art or wall hanging on this wall, which is essentially the focal point of the entire room. Such an arrangement lends sophistication to the interiors with minimum efforts and lesser lights. To install recessed lights using this technique, you first need to determine the spacing area. Divide the entire length of the wall by the wattage setting which is guided for wall washing. For example, 100 watt is recommended for 2 feet, 150 watts is recommended for 4 feet, and 150 watts is recommended for 3 feet. Once you get this calculation right, install the lights at the same distance.
Low Voltage: Fixtures that operate at a lower voltage than line voltage are termed low voltage. These fixtures require a transformer to reduce line voltage, usually to 12 or 24 volts. Many fixtures using the smaller MR16 bulbs are low voltage fixtures.
When adding recessed lighting to a bath, the size of the room will decide the lighting requirements. Bathrooms over 100 square feet require general light, while smaller baths can use mirror fixtures. Recessed incandescent fixtures work well and can provide general illumination for bathrooms up to 100 square feet. Place them no more than 36" apart and centered over the counter. Add fixtures for each additional 50 square feet of space. Note that wall sconces should be used in order to properly light a mirror or vanity, as using only recessed lighting in the space will shadow the face.
