(1) Be careful not to place recessed lighting fixtures too close together or in rows down the center of the room.
 
(2) An easy rule to remember is to proportionately match the size of your recessed lighting fixture to the distance of how far apart they are. For instance a 4-inch fixture should be placed 4 feet apart & 6-inch fixtures should be 6 feet apart from one another.
 
(3) Center recessed lighting fixtures in front of objects that need light. Generally the light should be 12 to 18 inches in front of the object.
 
(4) If the lights are used for tasks, then make sure that they are carefully placed overhead so that they do not block needed light.
 
(5) When lighting three dimensional objects, it is most effective to light them from two or three different angles.
 
(6) A neat trick to help make a space feel larger is to use wall washing recessed lighting fixtures. These help give the appearance that the walls are being pushed outwards.

    Can I install recessed lighting myself?
     
    Installation of recessed lighting
    Recessed lighting can give you an upgrade to your place in both the lighting & the house's overall vibe. You can choose either of the recessed lighting styles that will work well for you in the space you want them installed.
    DIY vs. Hiring a pro
    It is possible to DIY recessed light installation, especially if you do have access to the attic or a dropped ceiling. It'll guarantee you easy installation since you will have easy access to the wiring, & everything will be smooth all the way. However, in cases where you aren't privileged to have such a ceiling, most of the manufacturers offer a special fixture to remodel your roof with cut-in-cans, & your installation will be sorted out just fine.
    Safety measures
    If you decide to do things on your own, then safety measures are important to consider. First, get an IC-rated fixture if you don't have one to avoid accidents like fire or shock. The steps include
    1. Switching off the power to avoid any damage to the circuit or electrical accidents on yourself.
    2. Make an opening to where you want to place the bulb. Be careful not to cut through any existing cables using the necessary tools.
    3. Make the necessary wiring connections from the housing fixture to the power source.
    4. Properly fix the fixture housing into place by rotating it.
    5. Install the trim & baffle as instructed.
    6. Install the bulb & turn on the power.

    What is the difference between can lights & recessed lights?
