If you want to create a subtle, beautiful accent to any area around your home, look no further than installing exterior recessed lighting. This type of lighting is a great, eco-friendly way to set a mood that simply cannot be matched by using normal halogen outdoor flood lights or other light fixtures. There are several disadvantages to using recessed lighting fixtures as well, but they are easily outgunned by the advantages.
Advantages of Outdoor Recessed Lighting
There are several different advantages to incorporating exterior recessed lighting into your garden lighting plan. First, recessed lights are more eco-friendly than other more traditional flood lights. They cause much less light pollution around your neighborhood and don’t as readily disrupt the life cycles of birds, bugs, and other animals. They are also clean and unobtrusive, and don’t draw too much attention to themselves. This allows you to set a nice mood with ambient light while still enjoying the best aspects of the night.
By removing the actual light fixtures itself using recessed lighting eliminates a trip hazard for yourself and your family. It also can make mowing and upkeep of your garden and lawn easier by removing a light fixture that you have to mow around with more traditional lighting methods. Finally, recessed lighting fixtures can be used in huge amount of different settings and will work great.
