Welcome to our site where you will find beautifully decorated primary bedrooms with recessed lighting. Recessed lighting is a light that is placed into a small hole in the ceiling that is flush with the ceiling, and creates downlight in a minimal way. It creates a more even light coverage in a room and adds another layer of ambience.

How to Place and Space Recessed Lights
If you know recessed lights are the way to go for your bedroom, your next consideration should be where exactly each light should be placed along the ceiling. There should be enough lighting to conduct your necessary tasks and be able to see, but not so many that your room becomes reminiscent of a fashion show runway with strip lighting.
The spacing of your recessed lights will make the difference between creating ambient lighting, or general lighting intended for the entire room, or focused, task-based lighting for a single areas such as your reading chair or even lighting up beautiful artwork. However, spacing it just the right way can be a challenge, depending on the dimensions of your room and the placement of your furniture, so be sure to do plenty of research before installing the lanterns.
