Improve Your Home With Small Recessed Lights – The modern home today is expected to have modern lines. Sure, having a grand chandelier is nice and wonderful, but a three foot chandelier doesn’t work too well if you have an eight foot ceiling. Modern lines are clean and straight, and that’s just what you get with recessed lights.
Small recessed lights also give you light in tight spaces where traditional fixtures may not work. You may have a small closet that needs some light, or need extra light in your kitchen because you fancy yourself to be a gourmet chef – either way, small recessed lighting allows you to have light when light fixtures just won’t work. And maybe you just want to add drama to a specific piece of artwork or your prized collection of autographs from the Yankees. Whatever the case, small recessed lighting can be a great addition in your home.

Installing small recessed lights on anything but a major remodeling job or a brand new construction can be described as being extremely difficult. Not impossible, but difficult. In order to install them in your existing ceilings, you will need to cut holes for the lights in your ceiling and have the electrical run over to that hole. In addition, you may need to cut additional holes to route the wires if there is no attic above. One important item I’d like to mention here is since many ceilings these days are insulated, you should use fixtures that rated to be installed near insulation. Even if you don’t have an insulated ceiling, it’s a good idea to have the insulation rated fixtures. Otherwise, they can heat up and create an additional heat hazard near something you probably don’t want getting to hot.
