A life without lighting is hard to imagine. It has played a paramount role since forever and has been influencing the milieus around us. Be it workspace, streets, home, hotels or any indoor or outdoor space; lighting solutions exist, and they do because it is not possible to live without lighting.
The work environment dictates productivity, and lighting stimulates the mood of the workforce. Lighting also adds to the aesthetics of a room which makes it appear more prominent. The lighting industry is witnessing a paradigm shift ever since the technological advancements. LEDs are the preferred lighting solutions when illuminating any commercial space because of their countless benefits including energy-efficiency, durability, and eco-friendliness. They are also available in a wide-range of fixtures which allows them to be used in various commercial applications.
What is Recessed Lighting?
Recessed lighting is a light fixture that is installed in the ceiling. It has multiple applications and is typically used in workspaces for a clean and lean look. Recessed lighting when installed with LED luminaires, make up for a perfect lighting fixture for lighting offices. A recessed light typically has three parts housing, trim and light.
Advantages of Recessed Lighting
Recessed lighting can fill many roles including that of accentuating a place. These lighting fixtures are subtle and can be hidden from plain sight and are used to create a soft glow. They resist drawing attention to themselves and provide adequate lighting, especially on walls and areas that need a uniform concentration of light.
The Illusion of More Space
Recessed lighting is installed in the ceiling which is subtler and takes up less visual space. Since the lights are set in the ceiling, it gives an illusion where the room looks bigger than it actually is, partly because nothing hangs down. Recessed lighting can also make use of ‘wall washing’ technique. In this technique, more light is cast in the room (typically using the right kind of trim). Certain directional reflectors work well with recessed lighting that can effectively use the ‘wall washing’ technique in various spaces.
Moreover, recessed lights provide a soft glow to the room which actively blurs the boundaries. In this way, the room appears larger and more prominent. For instance, when recessed lights are installed in the corners of a room, the place seems to be more open.

LED recessed lights are highly versatile and can be installed in any indoor space. Be it a meeting room, reception area, retail store or even a library; recessed lights have plenty of use-cases. They also work well in bringing out the best of various lighting design techniques. Recessed lights are primarily used for creating an ambience because they hide themselves and have wider light distribution. As an unobtrusive light fixture, recessed lighting is best suited for commercial applications.
Recessed lighting is highly preferred in workspaces because of their above-listed advantages. It is time that businesses that are looking to revamp their offices consider refurbishing to LEDs, especially recessed lighting for better illumination. They are preferred across all industries, are environmentally friendly and have a modern appeal.
