Recessed lights have become very popular in new homes and as upgrades in new home renovations. Sometimes referred to as “can lighting,” these lights can be dimmable, controlled by dimmer switches and create a nice mood or accent to a room, or in other cases serve to illuminate a work station. Below are some of the best reasons to install recessed lighting in your home.

Room Placement
 An important benefit of installing recessed lighting is being able to place the lights in your desired location.
 Recessed lights lessen the need for other fixtures which creates more living space.

Lighting Quality
 Recessed lights create a clean, crisp look for a home or business.
 Recessed lights are available in a wide range of colors and temperatures to meet your individual preferences.

 Dimming recessed lights allows you to create or change the mood in a room.

Easy to Install - Easy to Use
 Compared to other canned lights, recessed lights are easy to install and sit tightly against the ceiling for a great appearance.
 Plus, with a flip of a switch an entire room or area can be well lit with no effort.

Social Responsibility
 LED bulbs use significantly less energy, and because of their long life, they also decrease the number of light bulbs that end up in landfill sites.
 LED bulbs in recessed lighting fixtures are cool to the touch as compared to incandescent lights.

In summary, there are many benefits of installing recessed lights in the construction or renovation of a home. There are numerous options, styles and models of recessed lights available in the market, plus a growing number of LED bulbs to complete the project.
