Ceiling Lighting

Ceiling Lighting

SME Inc of Seattle is your electrical contractor of choice for home remodels, home additions, and home rewiring. Lighting selection, especially ceiling lighting, is a key consideration when thinking about the nature of the changes you are making in your home.

Ceiling lighting is important to think about early on in the remodel or addition process. Installation of recessed lighting fixtures (e.g. can lights) can quickly improve and modernize the look of a room. Ceiling lighting should be functional, and reflect the personality and taste of the homeowner and the decor. Using compact fluorescent lamps in place of older incandescent lights can result in significant electrical power savings. Use this opportunity to replace or upgrade old switches, outlets, and wiring.

Other ceiling lighting options include indirect lighting, up lighting, cove lighting, and spot lights. Indirect lights can provide a softer, more muted lighting effect, especially in a home office with a white or light-colored ceiling. Cove lighting,, perhaps from a low voltage track lighting system, can be used to highlight special architectural features of the inside of your home such as vaulted ceiling details. Spot lights, now available in both incandescent and compact fluorescent versions, work well for highlighting artwork, sculptures, cabinet features, and other special sections of your home. Other lighting types to consider include both horizontal and vertical cable lighting, mono-rail low voltage track lighting, and fiber optics.

SME provides free electrical estimates for all home remodeling, repairs, and additions. We are happy to work directly with you, your general contractor, and/or architect, to develop a ceiling lighting plan, power plan, switching plan, and other electrical plans to make your home remodel or addition come out the way you envision it.
