Recessed Lighting Buying Guide

Recessed lighting offers a stunning clean, streamlined look in a home. They can increase the amount of light in a room, highlight artwork or other special features, and open up spaces so they look and feel bigger installed directly inside a ceiling, wall, or other surface. When installed it appears to have light shining from a hole in the ceiling, concentrating the light in a downward direction as a broad floodlight or narrow spotlight - as opposed to suspension or track lighting where the bulbs are visible. Here is our guide to selecting the right recessed lights for your space.

Recessed Lighting Types

Trimless Recessed Lighting creates a seamless integration of light within the architecture. It is a plastered-in fitting, a light fitting that has “no trim” because it is “buried” in the ceiling or wall, shedding light in a seamless way without any round/square edge around it. Trimless recessed lighting are suitable for various spaces, such as living room, bedroom, dining room and other places in the home. They are a truly modern solution, casting an extremely clean, unobtrusive ambient light in residential homes, commercial and hospitality spaces.

Can I use trimless recessed lighting in the bathroom?

Yes, but it should be noted that for places with high humidity in the house, it is necessary to choose a lamp with a large IP value to extend the service life of the lamp. It is also important to ensure that the recessed lighting is wet location rated - meaning that they can be installed in places with high humidity such as showers and over baths.

Wall and Step Recessed Lights are an essential component of any interior design, used to subtly illuminate specific objects, walkways, stairwells, hallways or areas on a wall surface. These lights are typically tucked away with a purpose to directly illuminate a specific area nearby. Incorporating step and wall recessed lighting in your home will create a luxurious, clean look.

LED Channel Recessed Lighting, also known as recessed aluminum profiles, are widely used for LED strip light projects. Install a LED strip light inside the channel to achieve better light diffusion and better heat dissipation. The channel can be shallow or deep, resulting in different diffusion effects. LED channel recessed lighting is usually available in preset lengths, and has to be cut or adjusted to suit the individual needs of every space. They are highly custom, and can be inserted or tucked away into many different materials, such as drywall, wood, and plastic.

Where should LED strips be placed in a living room?

To level up your light design, try installing LED strips under cabinets, along toe kicks, behind accent walls, under shelves, under the bed, and behind computer and TV screens.
