How to Design a Recessed Lighting PlanWritten by Paul Forte
Recessed lighting is part of almost every home remodeling project these days. You may call them high hats, can lights or pot lights depending on what part of country your in. With proper lighting plan, recessed lights can help illuminate a room. One of most important principles to understand when designing a recessed lighting layout is beam angle. In recessed cans, light is produced in shape of a cone. You picture light starting as a point at light fixture and forming a circle on floor. The beam angle is angle of this light out of bulb. For example a 60-degree beam angle will produce a circle of light about 9 feet across on floor if fixture is 8 feet off floor.
That is just one part of formula. That circle of light we now have on floor is not all same intensity. About five and a half feet of that circle is good intense light while remainder is spill over and diminishes as it gets further from center. This is very important to understand. With this information, you can overlap spill over light so that you end up with a nice even light pattern over entire area you are trying to illuminate.
