  • The location for installing your recessed spot depends on your bathroom layout. Distribute the spots evenly throughout the room.
  • In the shower, it is best to install the recessed spot pointing forward. Make sure the spot is not directly above your head while showering. Rather, install it above where you enter the shower on the wall.
  • Is your toilet separated by a wall? Then it is best to install an additional recessed spot for optimal lighting.
  • It is best not to install recessed spots above the head of your bathtub. That would direct light directly at you and is not pleasant when you want to relax.
  • Take into account that recessed spots are used for general lighting. So, for instance, if you want more light for your mirror, it is best to choose separate mirror lighting.

 

  • Examine the layout of the space when distributing recessed spots. Light the space where needed, but do not install recessed spots in a passageway.
  • Recessed spots are usually grouped as two or three units. Always work symmetrically and spread out your recessed spots so these are equally apart.
  • The number of recessed spots needed will depend on the nature and layout of your space. You may not need the same number of spots everywhere.

 

  • Make sure you choose water-resistant recessed spots.
  • Examine the IP value of the recessed spot to see how watertight it is. The higher the IP value, the better the protection.
  • We recommend that you choose a recessed spot with an IP value of 44 or higher.

 

  • The choice of your recessed spots depends on the type of ceiling in which you will install them. There are specific models for hollow and solid walls.
  • Are you looking for recessed spots for your bathroom? Then take into account the IP value of the recessed spot. The IP value depends on the zone in which the recessed spot will be installed.
  • There are different types of recessed spots: directional, non-directional, non-deep or deep light source. And, you can choose between different colours. So, we recommend that you consider your choices beforehand and decide based on your taste, the space, and the nature and layout of the space.
  • It is best to opt for recessed spots with an integrated LED light source. These are of a higher quality than LED spots in a halogen fixture (retrofit).

 

  • A variety of recessed spots are suitable for your kitchen. Recessed spots, mounted spots, white or black… the choice is yours.
  • However, directional recessed spots have added value. You can direct the light source to your work areas and have lighting where you need it.
