Recessed Lighting Ideas for Modern Homes

Some of the most popular lights today are recessed LED lights. LEDs are quickly becoming the latest eco-friendly trend in lighting because they are much more energy efficient than incandescent bulbs. 

LED lamps are approximately 70 to 85% more energy efficient because they do not lose heat during operation. But of course there are also other energy-efficient options for color changing LED recessed lighting

If LEDs are not in your price range, then explore compact fluorescent lamps. Even in sizes from 2" to 6", these bulbs are far more energy efficient than your average incandescent bulb. Fluorescent bulbs concentrate glare where it's needed, making your lighting design more efficient and using less lighting to achieve the same effect as incandescent bulbs. 

This modern lighting trend works for many different lighting situations – use low voltage lighting in your décor/display and work and display lighting in retail stores. Other creative uses include recessed lighting in swimming pools, fountains, and gardens or verandas.

But there are MORE ways to fill your home with recessed lights. There are also low-voltage lamps and lines. Low voltage lamps are a little more complicated to install as they require a transformer to reduce voltage and save energy. 

Often the advantage of linear voltage lamps is that they are cheaper because they require fewer parts and are simpler. However, if you want to save energy, low-voltage lamps are a great alternative. 

And last but not least, the possibility of lighting under the cabinets. Often such simple applications are overlooked by home decorators when they can easily light up a room with such fine and sophisticated inventory. Under cabinet lighting is the latest trend in kitchen and home furnishing.
