Why Your Clients Need Recessed Lighting

Guest Blog from The Home Depot

Although it may be a standard project for contractors and remodelers, installing recessed lighting can be a challenge for clients who may desire this modern look but lack the time or handy skill to make the switch.

Lighting can change the atmosphere of the space and highlight positive elements in clients’ homes including other design-focused investments like updated hardware and cabinetry. If your client is looking to upgrade their current fixtures to clean, clear light, recessed lighting is an excellent option that can really make each room in the house shine.

Remodelers should work with clients to discuss a few key questions before updating or installing a recessed product. Is it important to have different color temperatures and light outputs in various rooms, will that change by room? Is glare a factor in choosing recessed light? Together, it’s possible to find the right fit for their home.

Recessed lights have a design that is functional and pleasing to the eye for homeowners, giving any room a needed upgrade to better quality light. Check out these tips to share with clients on how recessed lighting can brighten up their home:

Modern and Sophisticated Style

Recessed lighting is undeniably one of the most attractive lighting options available. Homeowners love that the hardware hides away and becomes flush with the ceiling to offer a clean look. With flush-to-ceiling lighting, areas with low ceilings immediately have more space and all areas receive light without a focal point of a drop down fixture.

For the sleek aesthetic of a recessed light with the benefits of energy-efficient technology, Commercial Electric has developed an LED Color Changing Recessed Trim that is high quality at a great value with five white color temperatures in one light that can be easily adjusted using an integrated switch. Available in 4- and 5/6-inch sizes, remodelers can easily retrofit these lights into existing recessed cans and upgrade the space quickly for homeowners. The retrofit LED downlight is a replacement for 65W incandescent bulbs and exclusively available at The Home Depot.

Completely Customizable

Aside from the modern look of recessed lighting, the downward, directional nature of the light type gives homeowners better visibility and creates more light in the space versus other source types. Recessed lighting can be dimmable for greater control over the atmosphere in the home without purchasing different lamps or lights.


Commercial Electric created an LED Customizable Recessed Trim, which allows the user to create up to 30 customized lighting configurations. The light is highly versatile with the ability to illuminate areas with up to 15-foot ceilings. Select from five white light color temperatures and three brightness settings using integrated switches to create a unique look. These fixtures also score a 90 on the Color Rendering Index (CRI), ensuring high quality color representation. With black or white baffle options, homeowners are able to better customize based on the room’s style.

Another key benefit to the system, the 30-in-1 fixture’s all metal construction is wet-rated, so lights can be installed near showers without leakage or gaps.

Green Scene: Save Energy and Money

According to the Department of Energy, “There are at least 500 million recessed downlights installed in U.S. homes and both CFL and LED technology can decrease downlight wattage by 75 percent or more.” Now is a great time to suggest this project to clients as no matter the time of year, energy savings are an important consideration for homeowners. LED lighting can help reduce energy and keep homes well lit without the added heat from traditional incandescent bulbs.

Commercial Electric’s LED recessed lighting selections are Energy Star rated with a 50,000 hour rated life. This way, homeowners won’t need to worry about replacing lights often and can enjoy sustainability benefits and high performance at home.

With new options for modern lighting, both homeowners and remodelers can benefit from this quick and easy upgrade.
