Recessed Spot Lights

Serving both residential and commercial purposes, recessed spot lights are an attractive way to apply the principle of layered light. This kind of modern spotlighting can accent displays or wash walls with style yet subtlety. None of the machinery of the lighting fixtures jut into the space you are designing. The trim is smart (if it’s even there!), the swivels are discrete, and the light is bright. You get an elegant look while achieving highly functional lighting. Score.

Ways to Use Recessed Ceiling Spot Lights

Spotlighting in Multiples

One feature you will see in designer lighting as well as lighting in places like a commercial space is the multiple recessed spot light. In these modern fixtures, you may see up to four or five light bulbs – which swivel independently, of course. Ceiling spotlights are great for creating flexibility with your lighting. You can create a dynamic swath of accent light, which is handy, since many of the things you want to display are not best accented with a single spotlight. A table displaying statues or other decorative objects might benefit from a triple recessed spot light, for example. That way, each displayed item pops the way you want it to.

Residential vs. Commercial Uses of Recessed Spot Lights

Similarly, design-conscious retailers often use recessed spot lights because their displays are in constant fluctuation. You see a lot of multiple swivel ceiling lights in larger clothing stores, for example.
