5 Reasons to Get Recessed Lighting in Iowa


When it comes to what makes up a room in your home, there are many different things to consider. One of these factors is the lighting. A room’s lighting can change a lot about how a room looks, works and contributes to a house’s overall value on the market. One kind of lighting, recessed lighting, is a kind that is implanted in a room’s ceiling to avoid hanging units. While they aren’t for every room, recessed lighting can give a sleeker look to a room. At Integra, we can give you some reasons to consider asking us about getting recessed lighting for your Iowa home.

Here are five reasons to consider getting recessed lighting for your Iowa home:


Recessed lighting is one of the few types of lighting you can purchase that is waterproof. Granted, this won’t be important most of the time. However, this feature makes recessed lighting one of the few types of lighting that can be used in shower stalls. This also makes it more useful in bathrooms in general. Also, the casing used for recessed lighting makes it more resistant to dust.

Perennial style

Style and fashion can seem like a complex subject that has no rhyme or reason. Fortunately, recessed lighting, unlike track or monorail lighting, is effectively trend-proof. The sleek, modern look of recessed lighting has never truly been in style. Consequentially, these lights will never go out of style. You won’t have to worry about guests or house buyers considering your lights tacky.

Larger-looking rooms via wall washing

Wall washing is a lighting effect where you can cast more light around the room by using the correct trim. To properly make use of wall washing, you need a professional designer’s eye and the right parts. Both of these are things we here at Integra can provide. With our help, wall washing can make your rooms look bigger and brighter.

Good for low ceilings and small rooms

Recessed lighting not only makes rooms look bigger, but it can make them physically bigger. Normal hanging light fixtures can take up precious space in smaller areas and hit you in the head if you’re not careful. In rooms where space is a premium, such as basements, having lights that don’t hang down can give you more room.

Complete coverage

Normal ceiling lights in the center of a room can keep the center well-lit. However, this lighting has difficulty reaching the edges of the room, leaving the edges looking dimmer. With recessed lighting, you can carefully arrange your lighting to get complete coverage of your room.
