First of all, decide why you really want to install recessed lights in a particular room. For instance, if you want to install them in a working area, then you should space them evenly throughout the room, so that no shadows are visible. The same goes for kitchen lighting. But, if you want to install recessed lighting in living rooms or a dining area, then you may want to create some kind of a wall frame or artwork as a focal point of the room and illuminate them with recessed lights. Also, you will need to place the lights near the walls and make sure that the light fixtures are spaced at least 3 inches away from insulation. Lastly, you need to consider the interior painting theme. For instance, if the shades of walls and furniture are lighter, then you may need lesser number of recessed lamps, but if you have darker walls with leather furniture, then you may need more lamps. The spacing, placement, and arrangement of recessed lights mainly depends on the function that you want them to perform. Mentioned below are a few techniques that you could draw inspiration from.
Electric wall sconces have additional costs of installing them unless of course you are qualified to perform the installation. Once the hole is cut, the wires run, the sconce is connected there is still expense involved. The wall will require touch-up painting which often leads to the whole room. Rearranging a room may have the sconce in an awkward location or you may be limited how you arrange your room.
When adding recessed lighting to a bath, the size of the room will decide the lighting requirements. Bathrooms over 100 square feet require general light, while smaller baths can use mirror fixtures. Recessed incandescent fixtures work well and can provide general illumination for bathrooms up to 100 square feet. Place them no more than 36" apart and centered over the counter. Add fixtures for each additional 50 square feet of space. Note that wall sconces should be used in order to properly light a mirror or vanity, as using only recessed lighting in the space will shadow the face.
