What are recessed can lights?

A recessed light is a type of light fixture that is installed into a hole in the ceiling. The fixture has a trim that covers the hole, and the light bulb is recessed inside the fixture. Recessed lights are often used to provide ambient lighting in a room.

Recessed lights can be either incandescent or LED, and they come in a variety of sizes and styles. When choosing recessed lights, it is important to consider the size of the room and the type of lighting desired. For larger rooms or for task lighting, brighter bulbs may be necessary.

There are also dimmable recessed lights available, which can create a more relaxing ambiance in a room. Overall, recessed lights are a versatile and stylish option for many different types of rooms.

Where to use recessed can lighting

Recessed lighting can offer a lot of benefits, however, the can also be tricky to install and it’s important to choose the right location for the lights.

One common mistake is to place the lights too close together. This can create a “hotspot” of light that is unflattering and harsh. Instead, try to spacing the lights evenly throughout the room.

You should also avoid placing the lights directly over furniture or other objects that could cast shadows. By following these tips, you can create a beautiful and functional space with recess lighting.

How many recessed can lights do I need?

There’s no definitive answer to this question, as it depends on a number of factors such as the size of your room, the height of your ceilings, and the type of light bulbs you’re using.

However, a good rule of thumb is to have one light for every 10 square feet of space. So if you have a 100 square foot room, you’ll need 10 recess lights. Of course, you can always adjust this number based on your own preferences and needs. But if you’re looking for a general guideline, one light for every 10 square feet is a good place to start.
