- Recessed Lighting “Wall Washes” – Which Helps a Room Look Bigger
- Recessed Lighting Can Highlight Areas of a Room
- There Are Many Options in Recessed Lighting
Recessed lighting is an especially good option for smaller rooms. Why? Because the light cans are set right into the ceiling. There is no lamp or light hanging down or plugged into a wall. There is nothing to interrupt the visual space of the ceiling – which can help to make it look bigger.
Wall washing is a lighting effect that results in more light being moved around the room via the right choice in trim. Note that we are discussing the part of the light that you can see from the hole in the ceiling – not paint trim or another type of trim. When we used wall washed trim, we use directional reflectors along with a light scoop.
This helps direct light onto the wall. In order to take full advantage of this effect, the lighting must be spaced correctly from the wall and between each unit. We recommend spacing the lighting the same distance from each other as they are from the wall. For example, if a person had a nine-foot high ceiling, the lights could be placed three feet away from the wall and three feet away from each other. The higher the ceiling gets, the more space should be used between the lights.
The good news is that you don’t need to be an expert in the best way to install recessed lighting – we do. WE know how to install it, how to space it, and how to get you the effect you are looking for.
One of the most popular reasons to have recessed lighting installed is to highlight something in a room. This could be a work of art, a bookcase, or some type of special collection you have. Whatever it is, having angelic-looking light shining directly on it is a great way to make it look beautiful.
Finally, consider that you have many options when you choose recessed lighting. You can choose different colors for the trim and the lights, as well as the reflectors. You can choose from various designs and styles. Call Sonner Electric at 661-728-0126 to learn more about how we can help with your recessed lighting needs.
