Infographic - How To Map Out Your Recessed Lights

You may have come across our very popular How To Layout Recessed Lighting in 4 Easy Steps article. It gives you step-by-step instructions about how to create an ideal lighting scheme in any room by adding recessed cans. We were racking our brains about how to bring that information to you in an even more accessible way...

Then inspiration struck!

We'll make an infographic about it. The business of mapping out your lights is so visual anyway, of course a solid visual aid would come in handy. Wouldn't it be better if readers could see how to sketch out their rooms? If they could visualize how to space out their fixtures? Or observe different lighting configurations?

We thought so.

If you're still in the dark about how to plan your recessed lights, get ready to learn. This infographic will teach you:

  • Where your lights should go on the ceiling.
  • How to create a focal point, or an even distribution of light.
  • The amount of space that should go between each light.
  • How to avoid unwanted, ugly shadows.
