Recessed and surface mounted lighting sits snugly against your ceiling for a practical, discreet light source. These are the most adaptable and versatile fixtures for filling areas of your space from subtle light sources.
Until a few years ago, the thought of multi-functional lighting seemed very far removed from everyday life. However, thanks to LED technology, flattering designs are now possible. You can easily mount recessed lights in almost any thin partition of your home. It is up to you in which wall or ceiling you mount it to. Recessed lights give you enormous freedom in designing your indoor lighting.
Lights for DIYers
Recessed lights can be easily integrated into self-made furniture, including upgrading your existing shelves using recessed lights.
For interiors that adopt a minimalistic design, recessed lights make the room appear more open. These types of lights support the current trend of clean designs, enabling accent lighting throughout your home.
LED technology has many benefits, especially due to their modern design. Thin LED panels and LED spotlights have become possible through innovative LED technology. If you are struggling for space, choose an LED light. Their aesthetics also work well within a modern or minimalist home.
LED lights guarantee a long life, high energy efficiency, robustness and low heat generation.

Lots of possibilitys
They are hidden in the wall and are invisible. As soon as it is dark, they then illuminate the stairs.
There is often a space problem in the entrance hall of homes. This is where the advantages of recessed lights become clearly visible. By installing lights in the wall, you save a lot of space and the entrance hall therefore looks tidier, and makes a better first impression.
You can use these types of lights to ensure that nothing is in the way. The hallway can be illuminated from the ceiling using LED spotlights. Or from lights mounted on the wall close to the floor.
Recessed lights work well in the kitchen as they can be mounted above the kitchen work surface, providing necessary light exactly where it is needed.
Whether it's above the mirror or integrated into the floor, there are many possible uses for surface mounted lights in the bathroom. However, always remember to consider the protection class of the light. A spotlight mounted in the floor will certainly come into contact with water, and for this reason, must have at least IP44. Lights with protection class IP20 or higher should be installed further away from water sources.
In order to support basic lighting in the room, you can use accent lighting in the living room. Indirect lighting works well in creating a cosy ambience.
