Recessed lighting and wall sconces need an electrical expert
Recessed lighting and wall sconces are not easy to install. If you are interested in recessed lighting, get some Fort Mill, SC lighting pros to install it for you. Recessed lighting can be used for ordinary room lighting, task lighting (light for reading, working in the kitchen or putting on your makeup) or accent lighting for a particular place in your home or conversation piece. The fixtures are usually rated for 75 or 100-watt bulbs (or their LED equivalents) but in the case of task lighting, much brighter bulbs can be used. The total wattage should be roughly the area of the room in square feet, multiplied by 1.5.The space between recessed lighting fixtures should be roughly half the width of the ceiling, and at least two feet from the walls.
Recessed lighting usually consists of a bulb inside housing and trim fitted for a hole in the ceiling. It will make your life a lot easier if you choose the bulb, housing and trim all at the same time. This way, you don’t run into the problem of having to take the trim out of the housing to get the bulb in place.
The real trick, of course, is running the wiring above the ceiling. To ensure that the work is safe and effective and has its own warranty, it’s best to have this done by a professional electrician.
Using wall sconces to best effect
Where recessed lighting illuminates from above, wall sconces provide lighting from the side.This makes them a very good secondary light source, especially for accent lighting on mirrors and artwork. By replacing table lamps for reading and desk work, they can save a certain amount of space on your tables for other things. Placed on either side of a bedroom mirror, they can help you see yourself more clearly as you get dressed in the morning.
Wall sconces should be roughly five feet off the floor and, if placed in a corridor, about six feet apart. They come in a variety of different styles. Choose whatever style of wall sconce works best with your interior design. There are LED bulbs that give a warm, low light which is very suitable for use in wall sconces.
