Interior accent lighting
keeping things simple and up to date
Interior accent lighting can help your house transform from a shabby old looking site into a new unrecognizable one. The purpose of this type of lighting is to create a warm and cherishing effect by making the light face towards the certain area which you want to highlight.
This arrangement tells the visitors a volume about your character and the way you want your things to be seen. Different objects including photo frames, decoration pieces, and other paraphernalia can be put into use by this method.
Let’s take the example of a guitar that you no longer use. The guitar is occupying much space in your room and you don’t know what to do with that. You place that guitar on the table which is located just under the spot where the downlight sheds its light. This way, you do not only make use of the old guitar but also harness the hidden beauty of your room.
I admire accent lighting because of the wonders it has produced. With just a little lateral thinking, you can reshape the theme of your interior. The aforementioned example does not only apply to guitars and to obsolete instruments but to almost anything that has become a headache for you.
I personally wrote down some tips below from user experience to help accent lighting enthusiasts design their home.
How to install accent (recessed) lighting?
Here are 3 simple steps which will enable you to install recessed lighting:
Step 1: Identify the right area where you want to install the recessed lights and make a hollow depression around it by drilling.
Step 2: Connect the wiring through the holes by funneling it through the walls starting from the main power channel(power box). Make sure to switch off the power while building up the connection.
Step 3: Drill the area thoroughly. Before drilling, measure the length and width of the hole with the help of measuring tape in accordance with the size of the recessed lighting structure to provide sufficient support to the recessed lighting bulbs. You can also watch a tutorial.
