Low profile recessed lighting is a popular way to light a room. These lights are out of the way and step into the ceiling, making them less intrusive. They provide a suitable amount of light and are an attractive way to increase the value of a home. Unlike traditional lighting, recessed lights are beautiful and unobtrusive. Distance lamps suitable are important to avoid problems with electricity and lighting.

Use a stud finder to locate rafters. Low profile recessed lighting should avoid them to prevent damage to the house structure. When the studs are located and marked so that they can be avoided, the distance can be considered. Determine how much light is needed in a room. Larger rooms will require more light, while the smaller rooms will require fewer, but the amount needed will dictate some of the distance requirements.
Avoid putting low profile recessed lighting near the wall. The typical eight-foot ceiling lights should have at least two meters from the wall. Areas where the wall meets the ceiling may have obstacles that can be problematic during installation. Space lamps 6-8 meters apart. Areas that require more light or small areas may have recessed lighting closer together, but the average distance throughout a home should be about 6 meters.
