Recommendations for Recessed Lighting
Don't rely entirely on recessed fixtures, our expert says.

The bigger the holes, the more your ceiling will look like Swiss cheese.

You should combine task, ambient, accent and decorative lighting to create something that’s more cohesive and flexible. This is called light layering. ”Don’t put all your holes in one basket,” as my grandmother used to say.
