Recessed lighting, or "can lighting," is unique and offers benefits unlike other types of light fixtures. So, why should you consider installing recessed lights in your home? Read on to learn some of the perks that recessed lighting offers in a residential setting.

At Light Up, we offer several varieties of recessed lights. Recessed lights are installed above the ceiling plane in a surrounding metal "can." Recessed lighting is perfect for bathrooms, dens, kitchens, hallways... basically anywhere!

Perks of recessed lighting

  1. Simple and sleek appearance - As recessed lights sit above the ceiling plane, there is no hanging or mounted fixture visible. Recessed lighting may make your rooms appear more spacious for this reason!
  2. Strategic lighting - Recessed lights offer concentrated light in a small radius. This makes recessed lights perfect for providing strategic, focal lighting. For example, recessed lights lend crisp bright light when installed directly above your office desk.
  3. Perfect for low ceilings - No more head-bumping on hanging fixtures for our tall friends!
  4. Equal light throughout the room - Recessed lights are a great option to provide a light source for the perimeter of a room. You may notice that with a centrally installed light fixture, light is dispersed evenly outward but only to a certain radius. This leaves the perimeter of the room dimmer than the center. Recessed lights are the solution! Install recessed lights around the room perimeter for evenly dispersed light from wall to wall.
