Lighting has seen many trends over the years, and even today we see a variety of styles and arrangements. Lighting has the ability to change a home, for better or worse. The wrong lighting can make your home appear outdated and dreary, but great lighting can quickly transform a room into an open space everyone wants to spend time in. Lighting essentially sets the mood of a room, so it’s important for any home or business owner to give it some consideration. One lighting look that won’t be going out of style any time soon is recessed lighting. Recessed lighting has been particularly popular for the last twenty years, and it’s noted as a preference among current home buyers. This is credited to not just the pleasing look of recessed lighting, but also its functionality and tendency to improve home value. That’s why we at CMC Electric have been installing recessed lighting across Raleigh, Wilmington, and Clayton for years, and we haven’t met a homeowner who didn’t love their recessed lighting transformation yet.
Recessed Lighting’s Many Benefits
Recessed lighting tends to be preferred in homes and businesses today for several reasons. Done properly, it can completely transform a room and revamp an entire house. Some of the main benefits include:
- It makes a room look larger. It does this by creating an uninterrupted view of the ceiling with nothing bulky or distracting hanging down, making the space appear more open.
- It creates a “wall washing” affect. Not only does recessed lightning physically take up less room, it also creates an attractive visual illusion known as “wall washing”, casting additional light through the right spacing pattern and the right type of trim.
- It’s customizable. Recessed lighting can be tailored to your space to provide the appropriate amount of light in all the right areas. Rather than having one light in the center of the ceiling that causes shadows around the room’s perimeter, you can light up the room throughout with a strategically designed lighting layout.
- It can serve multiple uses. In addition to lighting your room, another benefit of recessed lighting many home and business owners find useful is its ability to act as a spotlight. Instead of having a clunky light fixture focused on those shelves or cabinets you want to display, recessed lighting can draw focus without drawing away attention from where you want it.
Recessed Lighting Isn’t a DIY Project
While some lighting projects you can do yourself, recessed lighting isn’t one of them. If you try to install recessed lighting, you risk both your safety and and look of your home. Attempting to installing new wiring in a ceiling requires a combination of the right skills, training, and equipment. When you try to install it without these, not only are you looking at an extensive project, but you risk your health. Don’t take on the hard task alone. When you choose the team at CMC Electric to install your recessed lighting for you, we’ll finish the job quickly and get it done right.
