The beauty of installing recessed lighting in the home is that there are no hanging fixtures or space taken up by wall lights or central ceiling fixtures. Recessed lighting gives off a warm gentle glow and there are no lightshades to get dusty or unsightly wires snaking across the room. The lighting is very simple to install by placing a metal housing or can behind the ceiling or wall. There are retrofit kits that can be used in older houses and the lights can be fitted with low energy bulbs making this kind of lighting very economical to run...
A dimmer switch is a great boon for any room that is fitted with recessed lights. Having control over the amount of illumination is a great asset and it means that you can create just the right ambiance for every occasion. Recessed lighting is perfect for rooms that have small proportions as none of the space is taken up by extraneous light fittings. In the kitchen, recessed lights provide bright conditions for working but if you want to dine in there, you can easily decrease the amount of light and create a more intimate atmosphere.
