Interior and Exterior Pot Lights, Mississauga

Interior and exterior pot lights are a great addition to the modern home. Upgrading your lighting can have a significant impact on the appearance of your home, changing the atmosphere completely as it gives spaces a sleeker and more polished finish. Pot lights fit especially well with more contemporary ceiling designs, blending naturally into existing decor. Healthy lighting is easily integrated into pot lights due to its versatility. Great lighting is important not only for aesthetic reasons, but recent studies have shown that healthy lighting is a key factor in combating the winter blues, which all too often Canadians are impacted by during the later and early months of the year.

Since they are highly customizable and are some of the most versatile, pot lights give you the freedom to light your home however you may want to. With the ability to be installed in rooms on ceilings or on walls, as well as outside of the home, these lights can be personalized by their bulb colour, sizing, and outer trim. Depending on where you want them installed, they can be customized to reduce glare/eye strain in living spaces such as in living rooms or bedrooms, provide brighter lights in studios and kitchens or along roof soffits, or even be resistant to moisture when placed in bathrooms.

The type and colour of the light bulb used is crucial to achieving healthy lighting. LEDs are the most commonly used and emit blue light with cooler temperatures, which stimulates the brain and is essential to productivity. These are recommended for work areas and should have a high color rendering index (CRI) to accurately depict your surroundings. However, as with all blue light, too much LED lighting can cause headaches and eye strain. This is why having warmer temperatures installed in spaces such as living rooms or bedrooms can help promote feelings of relaxation.

Whether you’re looking to install them into one room, into all of your rooms, or to the exterior of your property, pot lights are a great option to enhance the lighting experience of your home.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What if the pot lights installed are too bright?

It is often recommended that pot lights be paired with a dimmer switch for greater control. This allows them to be dimmed at any time without the worry and hassle that they’ll need to be changed out.

How often do pot lights need to be replaced?

Pot lights are expected to last at least 50,000 hours — that is approximately 300 weeks, or 5-6 years. It will likely be a long time before you have to get them changed, keeping in mind that you will not always have the light on 24/7. To get them changed, simply call MADE ELECTRIC and we will get the job done!

What is CRI and why is it important?

Color Rendering Index (CRI) is a measurement of how accurately colours appear to the human eye compared to natural lighting. This is important for situations that require accurate visual judgement, such as in studios or in the kitchen. The scale of low to high CRI causes reds and browns to vary the most, which can not only affect decor and art work, but also how meat, vegetables, and or other food items are judged in terms of being fully cooked. It is there recommended for task lighting that you have a high CRI.
