Recessed lighting provides the benefit of an exceptionally versatile light in a compact – and virtually hidden – unit. Recessed lighting is great for any space but is particularly well suited for outdoor use. Also known as can lighting, recessed lighting is comprised of the housing, which is concealed in the wall or ceiling, as well as the trim which is visible. Recessed lighting offers little or no profile and is an excellent choice for both residential and commercial spaces, as it provides effective ambient lighting to the areas in which it is placed.
One of the key things to consider when choosing the right recessed lighting for your next project is the number of lights required to provide adequate illumination. The total number of lights required will depend on the type of bulb, as well as the wattage being used. If you use smaller, spot-type lights, the beams they produce will be narrow and will provide pockets of lighting. This style of lighting is excellent for accenting architectural or design features. Flood-type bulbs, on the other hand, will produce a much broader amount of light, making them ideal for lighting larger outdoor areas.

Uses for Outdoor Recessed Lighting
Outdoor recessed lighting has a number of practical and decorative uses both inside and outside of the home. Recessed lighting fixtures work particularly well outdoors, as they offer an elegant and unobtrusive source of lighting.
Recessed LED step lighting is seemingly designed for exterior spaces. This is because they work wonders with outdoor stairs and steps. Navigating outdoor spaces at nighttime can be difficult, especially with traditional lighting systems which are placed at, or above, the eye-level of most people. These fixtures may dazzle or blind an individual, which can lead to falls, slips, trips, or other accidents. Recessed lighting can help solve issues like these and works as an excellent safety solution for stairs outside.

This is especially true for individuals looking for a high-end finish and appearance without breaking the bank. Illuminated pathways using recessed lighting get the dual benefits of beautiful exterior lighting and safety, with the benefit of low-maintained and low-energy LED exterior lights.
