Also known as recessed lighting, pot lights are lighting fixtures often installed into ceilings, but can also be installed along walls to light up spaces and give them a sleek and modern finish. Fully functional with their electrical components hidden, these lights are great for modernizing the home as they are incorporated naturally into your existing design and decor. Pot lights can be installed during new construction or even when remodeling the home. They are a great option for lighting due to their versatility and subtlety.
With professional installation, they can be customized to suit your needs. They are usually installed between ceiling joists in interior spaces, but can be retrofitted to almost anywhere in the home as spotlights or within walls. It is best to avoid having them installed in ceilings with detailed plasterwork/moulding or in concrete ceilings. No matter the location of installation, pot lights can be used to illuminate focal points, enhancing the appearance of your home in any way that you may choose.
They are also the perfect way to incorporate healthy lighting into your home, which is key to combating the winter blues, a condition that affects Canadians often during the colder months when there is less sunlight. Sunlight naturally emits blue light, and with less exposure to natural sources of it during the winter, people can find themselves feeling sluggish and unproductive. Cool-toned lighting brightens up working spaces, but it should also be noted that too much of it can also result in headaches. That is why warm-toned lighting for most living spaces is also important, since it can allow the mind to relax and be at ease.
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.
