Installing recessed lighting into your kitchen or living room creates an immediate update to the look of your home! Recessed lighting is very low-key, makes a subtle statement, and yet is elegantly modern. If you are looking for an update to your home's lighting, think "recessed."
There are many options available in the design and functionality of recessed lighting. You will be able to brighten rooms and direct lighting to key areas such as a countertop or cooking area. This tutorial assumes you have an existing electrical ceiling fixture that you can tap into to get power from. Keep in mind that if you are installing into an area with insulation (such as a ceiling below an attic), you will need to use Insulated Ceiling (I.C.) cans that can be used in areas where insulation will abut the lighting housing. When you buy your recessed lighting cans, be sure that you purchase the appropriate kind for your application - either for existing ceilings or for exposed joists.
