Recessed ceiling lighting must be installed by trained professionals with a blended skill set. These professionals must combine a solid understanding of interior home architecture, home electrical wiring, advanced interior design, and an impeccable knowledge of fixture selection and placement. Only when these seemingly separate disciplines are synthesized to create a new personalized aesthetic of blended art and science can you count on getting the results you expect for your luxury home lighting investment.
Consider first how your home is constructed. In a very real sense, it functions much like a three- dimensional frame. Within the context of this frame, the lifestyle you create can be compared to a living expression of personal art. If you were in a different home, a different frame so to speak, your activities could very easily change in adaptive response to your new environment.
Yet you consciously chose to remain in this home, and you chose to make this place the frame for the expression of your life. Does it not make sense, then, to work with art lighting and home lighting professionals your will treat your home with the same respect that you do, and likewise make it the frame for your recessed ceiling lighting design? Of course it does.
That being established, it also follows that choosing to work with professionals who are trained in interior design will ensure that the investment you have made in decorating will be fully magnified when it is revealed to you again in an entirely new light.
To experience this return, however, will require more than just knowledge of what elements of your home need to be illuminated. It will also require that you work with experts who know just of how much illumination each area in the room will require in relation to the room as a whole.
Our team has spent well over two decades learning these subtle nuances of both science and art. Our purpose in this multi-disciplinary approach to the art of lighting has always been to generate an experience that makes illumination a form of design, and light itself as the catalyst of expression for the aesthetics of your unique, personal living space.
Recessed ceiling lights are therefore chosen in proportion to scale and scope of the room they are lighting. The size of the ceiling, and the volume of the space, helps us determine just how much luminance in the room will be appropriate to its purpose and size. Foyers, vestibules, and hallways often take the form of very narrow spaces, or very tight and cozy quarters. Smaller fixtures that fit with the space they occupy will be needed here. When properly positioned, the angle from which light shines down from the ceiling balances with the diminutive size of the fixture and fills the room with just the right amount of light.
In larger rooms, the best recessed ceiling lighting will require a blend of much larger fixtures intermingled with smaller fixtures positioned in key locations. The intention here is to create multiple layers of luminance. You cannot just fill a large room with bright light and expect anything but glaring overkill. Rather, you need a blend of bright and not-so-bright light intermingled and layered in ways that guide room occupants to most comfortable and interesting parts of the room.
Be aware, too, that every room in your home can be lit to some extent by recessed ceiling lights. While a true luxury home lighting system will consist of many different types of luminaires, recessed fixtures are for the most part standard to the majority of home lighting arrays we install in new constructions and Houston home remodeling projects.
