Covering Recessed Fixtures Not in Use
How do you hide recessed lights that are not being used if you don't want to remove them?
We have a slanted wood ceiling where there are two 6-inch-diameter recessed lights that are not aligned with the island and we want to center and hang a new pendant fixture instead. We want to cover up the recessed fixtures without removing them. Is there a solution such as a simple plate that will disappear on a white wood paneled ceiling?
I'll tell you what we are doing on projects to cover up a recessed fixture that is no longer in use. We actually use a speaker cover to make the fixture "disappear," creating the illusion that there is a home sound system in place. It's a win-win solution.
