Are you looking to give your home a modern, new look – without breaking the bank? Sunburst Electric offers a range of recessed lighting solutions that combine form and function to help give your home the fresh look you’re looking for. Recessed lighting can transform a room; highlighting its best features while improving light in poorly-lit spaces.
What Is Recessed Lighting
Recessed lighting from Sunburst Electric is lighting that is installed inside the ceiling, rather than on top of it. Recessed lighting consists of two parts, namely: the housing (the part that sits inside the ceiling) and the trim (the part that is visible when looking up at the ceiling).
Outdoor Soft Lighting
The benefits of using outdoor soft lighting include:
- It’s versatile – allowing for various beam angles to deliver light and create the desired atmosphere.
- It’s waterproof and insulated – making it safer to use for providing bright light both indoors and outdoors.
- It’s subtle – fittings are small enough to be concealed and unobtrusive, keeping your home or garden looking its beautiful best.
- It’s flexible – fixtures can be angled or swiveled to target the specific areas that benefit most from being illuminated.
Where Recessed Lighting Is Used
- In multi-use spaces such as lounges and entertainment areas (with added dimmers for extra versatility).
- Accent lighting – compliments clean, contemporary indoor spaces.
- Task lighting – such as in kitchens and bathrooms, to provide necessary illumination.
- Spotlighting – to illuminate art and other decor items for dramatic, poignant effect.
- Downlighting – effectively brightens a space without taking the focus away from furniture and other decorative pieces.
- Wall-washing – uses lighting to make spaces look and feel larger and more spacious than they really are.
Where Not To Use Recessed Lighting
Sunburst Electric does not recommend the use of Recessed Lighting in the following situations:
- If it will be the only source of lighting for a room.
- If the room has concrete ceilings.
- If the room has decorative or suspended ceilings, or paper décor, because this type of lighting can detract from how these look.
Consider These Factors Before Installing Recessed Lighting
The type of housing that is required.
Ceiling slope, ceiling material, insulation, and whether lights are installed on a new home or remodel, are factors that determine the type of recessed lighting housing that is required.
The number of fixtures needed.
Professional service is especially important with recessed lighting, because there is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ solution that will work for all spaces. Factors that help determine how many fixtures you will need include: area size, ceiling height, bulb wattage, visibility requirements and other, existing sources of light.
The correct spacing between fixtures.
A professional lighting technician from Sunburst Electric will ensure that all fixtures are evenly spaced, creating a well-balanced look. It is also important to select the correct hardware for fixtures that will be fitted in damp or humid spaces, such as bathrooms and kitchens.
Overall electrical load.
A professional technician will assist you with determining the safest, most effective way to install new light fixtures. This will avoid overloading your home’s electrical circuits and potentially causing major damage to its electrical system.
