Recessed lights are flush with the ceiling, making them great for rooms with low ceilings. Sometimes called can lights or downlights, recessed lights have three main components: the housing, the trim and the light bulb. The homeowners wanted to upgrade their clean contemporary living room and and ensure that they had enough adjustable recessed lighting. We first identified the activities that took place in their living room. For example, the homeowners had a workspace area where someone used it to read and work. We made sure to place recessed lights approximately three feet away from the wall to avoid creating shadows in any corner, as this would have created the visual effect of lowering the ceiling. The homeowners love using their living room for work and play.
