RECESSED LIGHTING- A BRIEF BACKGROUND

Living Room Recessed Lighting

Recessed lighting was first used in commercial, retail and industrial units as early as the 1940s as a way to maximize lighting efficiency and make offices look more aesthetically pleasing. They started using recessed lighting as a way to highlight their merchandise and add character to the space. Replacing a hanging fixture with a light source in the ceiling was a space-saving measure that had a clean look, provided adequate light for displays and accented certain areas. Because ceiling heights were typically lower during this era, recessed lights also made rooms look larger. These housings were paired with finishing trims to cover the unfinished holes in the ceiling.

Over the years, recessed lighting increasingly found its way into residential applications. This is because recessed lighting has the ability as a small investment to dramatically alter a space, making it look and feel more inviting and adding value to the home not to mention its simplicity and energy efficiency, as recessed lighting tends to use significantly less energy and last longer than the standard light bulb. In today’s world, it’s difficult to find a newer home that does not have recessed lighting.

For the past decade, the industry has been focused on another big shift. Department of Energy research shows that incandescent and compact fluorescent lamps are increasingly being replaced by LEDs. When it comes to recessed lighting, one added benefit of LEDs is that they allow for smaller holes. While we’ve been putting them into high-end hotels and restaurants for several years, they’ve gotten to a price point that’s reasonable for residential customers.
