What Are the Uses and Benefits of LED Recessed Lighting?

Unlike traditional ceiling lights that hang down from the ceiling, recessed lights — also known as can lights or pot lights — are set into the ceiling, leaving none of the housing visible. For this reason, recessed lights are ideal for small rooms or spaces with low ceilings.

Living room recessed lighting is useful for spotlighting artwork or architectural features, while recessed kitchen lighting adds direct light to areas such as countertops. A popular choice for a bedroom recessed lighting layout is to install a row of lights above the bed to create additional ambient light.

LEDs produce very little heat, are energy-efficient and last much longer than traditional bulbs — anywhere between 20,000 and 50,000 hours. So replacing your old incandescent or halogen recessed fixtures with LEDs will save you both time and money.

Factors To Consider When Choosing Recessed Lights

Consider several factors when planning an LED recessed lighting design.


The most popular size for can lights is 6 inches, but they're also widely available in sizes between 4 and 8 inches. The size of the fixture affects ceiling recessed lighting placement; the higher the light is installed, the more the light is diffused, so a larger size is required to provide direct light.


The trim is the visible part of the light fixture. As well as aesthetic considerations, trims should be chosen for functionality. For example, some trims reduce glare or are suitable for use in wet areas, such as showers.

Recessed Lighting Spacing

An important consideration in recessed lighting design is spacing. Generally speaking, recessed lights should be spaced 3 to 4 feet apart for low-to-medium ambient lighting and 2 to 3 feet apart for areas where high ambient light is required, such as in bathrooms and kitchens. Also, consider can light distance from the wall. Can lights should be placed 2.5 to 3 feet from the wall to avoid casting a shadow.

Are LED Recessed Lights Worth It?

LED recessed lighting serves both an aesthetic and practical function and is definitely worth the time and effort it takes to install.

Many states, energy suppliers and nonprofit organizations offer rebate programs to help cover the cost of installing new LED lights.
