Recessed Lighting Installation Charlotte, NC

So you’re thinking about recessed lighting… excellent choice! Recessed lighting is available in a wide assortment of styles and is fast becoming one of the most popular ways to optimize residential and commercial lighting. Whether you’re building or renovating a home or want to give your business a boost, recessed lighting is an excellent way to merge function and design.

Recessed lighting is the perfect way to add light throughout your home without the need for large, bulky light fixtures. By being fixed in your home’s ceiling rather than hanging from the ceiling or sticking out of your wall, recessed lighting is a subtle upgrade that makes a major impact on your home.

No matter what style of home you have, there’s a way to incorporate recessed lighting into the space. Whether it’s used to highlight a focal point of your home or simply create a relaxing atmosphere, recessed lighting can be used in many ways. This versatile lighting is inexpensive to install and can add a lot of light to even the darkest of rooms.

Livewire Electrical has years of experience upgrading, replacing, and installing recessed lighting in both homes and businesses in the Charlotte area. Whether you’re looking for a simple change or a complete lighting overhaul, recessed lighting may be the solution you’ve been looking for.

 

What is Recessed Lighting?

Recessed lighting consists of light fixtures that are installed directly into the ceiling. These lights sit flush with the ceiling, meaning they’re not taking up any extra space or drawing attention away from a focal point in the room. Recessed lights are often paired with decorative trims, meaning you can personalize your recessed lighting to match your exact style.

Whether you have a traditional home or a modern, sleek design, recessed lighting is an adaptable, versatile lighting solution that works with plenty of styles. The minimalist design means you can highlight other areas of your home without the light fixture being the focal point. Recessed lighting can also be a valuable visual upgrade to your home.

Benefits of Recessed Lighting in Your Charlotte Home

If you’re considering upgrading your lighting to recessed lighting, some of the top benefits include:

  • The ability to install these fixtures directly into the ceiling, eliminating the hassles of traditional light fixtures that may otherwise inhibit the desired light placement.
  • The versatility of these fixtures allows you to customize everything, from the direction and intensity of the light to the variety of trims and designs.
  • Many of these fixtures are Energy Star rated and can house the newest LED bulbs that last longer and are more energy-efficient.
  • Bulb options include incandescent, fluorescent, LED, and halogen.
  • Switches for these lights can be specifically installed for your lighting needs, including dimmers and switches that can provide just the right amount of light when desired.

 

Where Does Recessed Lighting Work Best?

Since recessed lighting is so versatile, you can use recessed lighting in virtually any space, including kitchens, bathrooms, home offices, hallways, basements, dining rooms, and even garages. You can use recessed lighting to highlight focal points in your home, frame a room, provide supplemental light when needed, and eliminate wasted overhead space that was being taken up by large light fixtures.
