The goal for recessed lighting is to add not only visibility but also interest and ambiance to your environment. Toward that end, when designing lighting for any room or space, layering your lighting is critical. Combining recessed lights with a variety of other types of lights such as chandeliers, pendants, sconces and lamps, make rooms feel balanced and inviting.
1. Ambient light
Recessed lighting when used as an ambient light source
provides an important general lighting layer for any room.
2. Wall Grazing
Wall grazing accents textured, vertical surfaces by amplifying their shadows. The play between light and shade create a dramatic effect on the wall, with amazing results. Smaller recessed lights maybe used in both downlight and up-light applications.
3. Art Lighting
Recessed lighting is an excellent choice to illuminate art effectively. Particularly with the use of optic reflectors one can adjust the beam spread to light a specific area of the artwork accentuating a focal point or alternatively using a wider beamspread the whole art can be evenly lit. An ideal way to make a painting pop!
