Recessed Lighting Electrician Atlanta
At Ways Electric, we understand that whether you’re building a new Atlanta home or renovating an old home in the area, recessed lighting can be a key element in both the function and style of the space. Here are some basic tips in what to look for when considering installing recessed lighting.
Why You May Want Recessed Lighting In Your Atlanta Home
* Recessed lighting offers a streamlined look in a home. Recessed lights can increase the amount of light in a room, highlight artwork or other special features, and open up spaces so they look and feel bigger. It can also change the ambiance and feel of an area!
When To Use Recessed Lighting In Your Atlanta Home
* Though recessed fixtures are most easily installed between ceiling joists of new building or major remodeling projects, some recessed fixtures are designed specifically for retrofit applications and can slip into an existing ceiling space through holes made to accommodate wiring; however, the fixtures you choose must be rated for use near insulation (IC housing rated) whenever ceiling insulation is present. When a ceiling is uninsulated, a non-IC housing may be used.
Where To Place Recessed Lighting Fixtures In Your Atlanta Home
- Avoid recessed lighting fixtures placed too close together or in rows down the center of the room. This type of installation can have the look of an airport runway.
- Match the size of your recessed lighting fixtures to how close together they can be installed. The common rule is that 4-inch fixtures should generally be placed at least 4 feet apart and 6-inch fixtures about 6 feet apart.
- Center recessed lighting fixtures in front of the objects you wish to light – a painting, bookshelf, or drapery panels, for example – and about 12 to 18 inches in front of that object.
- Recessed lights used for reading or task lighting should be carefully placed overhead so your head and shoulders will not block needed light.
- When lighting a three-dimensional object such as a fireplace, sculpture, or flower arrangement with recessed lighting, it is more effective to light it from two or three different angles.
- Use wall-washing recessed lighting fixtures around the perimeter of a small room to help “push” the walls out and make the space feel larger, or aim them at a collection of artwork or photographs to call attention to the display.
- Install recessed lighting fixtures in the bottom of your kitchen cabinets. The light will wash your counter top with focused light.
