Light Color

Lights are rated in Kelvin which tells us what color to expect. Incandescent 65 watt bulbs are 2700 Kelvin, although this color is natural for an incandescent bulb we can get the same color from a 65 watt equivalent LED bulb. We offer lights in 2700 Kelvin, called soft white and 3000 Kelvin, called bright white. Other colors may not be readily available and may affect the cost.

Dimmers
All lights that we provide are dimmable and compatible with most dimmers. If you're thinking about providing your own materials make sure LEDs are dimmable before putting them on a dimmer. Bulbs that aren't compatible with dimmers will flicker or hum. We do carry two styles of dimmers or you can provide your own dimmer as well.

Directional
It’s common to use eyeball and directional interchangibly, but there are other directional options, one is called a gimbal. Both have a 30° tilt with a 360° rotation. The gimbal sits flush with the ceiling while the eyeball extends. The eyeball trim is typically less expensive than gimbal. The gimbal gives a more modern design to the directional light. 

Recessed lighting, sometimes called can lighting, is becoming increasingly more common in homes. It adds a modern touch and perfect ambient light. The most common size is 6 inches, but 4 inch is also available.

Where to Start
If you’re looking to accent something in a room, place the first light above it and space other lights around your focal point. For equal lighting in a room put the first recessed can in the middle and space the other lights from there.








Spacing
For an 8-10’ ceiling height cans should be placed 3-4’ from each other, for a 12-15’ ceiling cans should be placed about 6’ apart. Remember to keep your cans about 3’ from the wall to avoid harsh shadows that will make your wall look shorter.

Trim
The trim is the part of the can that we can see. The most commonly installed are white baffle trim, LED trims and shower trims. We offer both white and black baffle trims. If we're installing recessed lights for the first time we prefer to install white baffle trims, these trims reflect light and blend in better to the ceiling. If black baffle trims are already installed in the home then we can match them. Damp rated recessed lights are required over areas like a tub or shower, we can either use a shower trim with a bulb or we can use an LED trim install above these areas. Although directional trims are available and common in areas with vaulted ceilings.
