Why Install Pot Lights?
“Potlights,” “pot lights,” or “can lights” (in the US) are quickly becoming an extremely popular lighting fixture thanks to their sleek design, easy installation, and overall look. They are also relatively inexpensive, energy efficient, and go well in nearly every room of your household. With a wide variety of bulbs available, not only will they give you different lighting levels and colours to suit your needs, but you can even further increase your energy saving benefits. So, whether you spell it “pot light” or “potlight,” they are a prime choice for any homeowner thanks to their vast possibilities.
Pot lights are very low-profile. They do not take away from the furniture or centerpiece that is in the room as they are set right into the ceiling. They also very conveniently do not get in the way when you are moving a tall piece of furniture or equipment. This low-profile ability also allows you to put them into low-ceiling rooms where a regular light could be too low and could potentially be in the way.
Pot lights also tend to give off a very professional and uniform look, which is great for anywhere from bars to kitchens and hallways. As stated before, they are multi-directional, which means that the light does not necessarily have to shine down where it is installed, it can be adjusted to fit the needs of the room.
Pot lights are also a great way to complete an already lit room; you can install them to complement a more decorative lighting fixture (such as a chandelier) to ensure that the room is more uniformly lit. This would get rid of any unwanted and unattractive shadows, making the room feel more inviting and welcoming without taking attention away from the centerpiece. Pot lights can also be installed in suspended ceilings, high ceilings, and some can even be installed around insulation. Their versatility is immense, which makes them a great choice virtually anywhere.
It is always a good choice to consult or hire a professional when dealing with lighting as it involves the electrical wiring of your house. This prevents the risk of faulty wiring, electrical fires, and overall damage to your household. If you are considering replacing your old lighting fixture, contact Mr. Potlight today.
