How to Install Recessed Lights
We’ve perfected the process of designing, installing, and inspecting recessed lighting. Our team always starts by inspecting your current electrical system. This helps us determine if we will feed off an existing circuit or need to install a new one for the project. Once determined, we’ll work with you to find the right combination of fixture and design. You can choose the style and color that best fits your aesthetic. Each team member is trained to follow precise steps to ensure everyone’s safety at the job site, allowing you to sit back and relax while we handle everything else. Take a look at how our team installs recessed lighting systems:
- Measure and Cut – Once everything is agreed upon, we start by measuring the right location and cutting holes in your ceiling where the lights will sit.
- Wiring – Next, we run a wire from the recessed lighting fixture to your home or business circuit breaker. If we’re using an existing circuit, we’ll join wires at the light’s junction box, and if it’s a new circuit, we’ll start to pull wire through the hole.
- Wire Fixture – We’ll wire the recessed lighting fixtures in place after finding the right circuit.
- Fixture Installation – When all the wire is installed, we’ll install your requested light fixtures.
- Add Trim – After everything is snug and up to local, state, and federal code, we’ll install the trim.
- Screw in the Bulb – Lastly, we’ll install energy-efficient light bulbs to ensure you can save money on your monthly energy bill.
- Finalize Wiring – Once we’re satisfied with the fixture, we’ll finalize the wiring and complete a full inspection of the recessed lighting. We want to ensure the fixture is safe and meets our high standards.
Safety Considerations of Recessed Lighting
We understand it can be tempting to save money by handling the installation yourself. It’s especially important to let licensed and trained electricians install new electrical fixtures, including recessed lights. Handling the installation by yourself can result in injuries and possible electrical fires. Here are some safety considerations to factor in when installing them yourself versus calling a professional:
- Missing Permits – Almost any time our team messes with electrical wiring, it requires a permit. This is especially true when we must cut into a wall or ceiling. Regulations are in place to help promote safety. While you may be able to install them yourself, you may have accidentally created a hazard that can’t be seen. Improper wiring is dangerous and can lead to electrical fires. Recessed lighting isn’t a common style of lighting fixture installed, so most may not be experienced in the type of safety and design required to install this style of light.
- Not Meeting Code – Building code and requirements are frequently updated. Our licensed professionals are up-to-date with all Maryland building codes and their requirements. We’ll be able to use that knowledge to ensure your new recessed lighting is safely installed and meets all codes.
- Avoid Electrical Shocks – If you’re unsure which circuits power which fixture, it’s safer to call the experts. Working without an understanding and knowing how your electrical system works can result in electrical shocks, which could be fatal.
Benefits and Advantages of Recessed Lighting
Good lighting is one of the most vital aspects of any home décor. Your lighting system should add style and functionality to invite people into your space while providing the right amount of light. Recessed lighting is often used to provide more coverage light. These fixtures are spaced throughout your ceiling, making it easier to light up entire rooms. It’s also great for maximizing space without lamps or other mounted lights. Take a look at some of the most significant benefits of recessed lighting:
- Versatility – Due to how recessed lighting is installed, it can be installed in almost any location while remaining stunning. This offers unrivaled versatility, allowing you to get the look and feel you want.
- Multi-Purpose – Recessed lights are perfect for just about any task. Whether looking to light up an entire room, task lighting, safety, or more, you can rely on recessed lights to get the job done.
- Space–Efficient – These lights are great if you’re looking to maximize your space. You won’t need additional lamps to achieve the look you want.

Best Spaces for Recessed Lighting
Recessed lights can elevate and transform any space by using diffused light from stylish fixtures. They’re able to integrate into any room seamlessly. These fixtures boast bright lights without taking up too much room. With recessed lighting, any room will feel sleek and open. While they can be installed anywhere, there are a few places we would recommend as they are better suited to specific uses and decorating styles. Here is our list of recommended spaces for recessed lighting installation:
- Kitchen – When you install recessed lighting in your kitchen, you can wash the space in subtle lights, allowing you to see your entire workspace in bright, clean light. It also adds a sense of sophistication to your kitchen, making it a great spot to entertain guests between meals.
- Dining Room – Recessed lighting can create a stunning environment to entertain friends and family. We recommend using LED lights, which have dimming features and come in various color choices. When you use warm lighting, it puts off a welcoming, comfortable glow.
- Living Room – Like the dining room, recessed lighting can elevate your living room into a comfortable, welcoming space. Further, these fixtures can help highlight key features and art pieces throughout your living room.
- Hallways and Closets – We recommend recessed lighting to add safety to these spaces. They won’t interfere with smoke detectors, making them a great choice.
- Bedroom – If you want to create a warm and cozy feel in your bedroom, you should invest in recessed lighting. Recessed lighting allows you to create a warm, open space or a little reading nook to relax in at the end of the day.
