The most minimal, sleek and classic of all lighting for the home, built-in lamps – also known as recessed lighting – are a discreet but powerful way to light the way. But though they are simple, there’s no ‘one size fits all’ and the variations in this style of light are wide and wonderful. Halogens are bright little recessed spotlights that are uninterruptive to the eye and are perfect for corridors and hallways, bathrooms, dining rooms and of course living rooms and bedrooms. In the kitchen, combined with angled wall task lights, they’re a widely loved solution, while as wall lights they’re favoured for stairwells, mounted in the wall just a little way off the floor. All about the light they emit, these built-in lighting sources aren’t so much about making a feature of the fitting itself, but about providing a timeless, high-impact solution to the overall lighting of any room.
But recessed wall and ceiling lamps don’t necessarily have to stay tucked away, there are styles emerging from the Scandinavian designers where the light fitting and source is tucked into the ceiling, combined with a simple lampshade emerges from it. The result is a beautiful, almost Japanese-style solution creating a perfect pool of down light.
Consider also, built-in spots and downlights as the ultimate in orientation lighting – they lead the way in entrance halls and, fitted with dimmer switches, can be muted to create a moody starry sky in the interior. In recessed alcoves or above wardrobes, they create almost exhibition-style lighting for greater focus on an accessory or task.
Finally, recessed lamps are the only option for low ceilings, where a lampshade, ceiling pendant or light fitting would take up space. In this way, using them optimises ceiling height.
