Some parts of the homes, as well as commercial buildings have low ceilings that require specialized lighting to make most of the closed space without having the light dominating the area. Flushed fixtures are perfect for areas like foyers, hallways and bedrooms because these areas does not require too much light. Recessed lighting are also great for offices and building lobbies because the muted glow of the lights does not interfere with the computer screens in the work area spaces. They can also function as great lighting accents.
There are a lot designs that you can choose from for flushed fixtures. Simple designs without intricacies are great for hallways and foyers in the homes while elegant and beautifully designed pieces can best complement the bedroom. You can also experiment with different colors for this but the more elegant ones are reserved for bedrooms. Recessed lighting, developed in the 1940s, creates the impression of hole-in-the-ceiling types of lighting. Light is limited and it produces a subtle effect, making the whole area sufficiently lighted. Most company buildings use this kind of fixtures for their offices not only for the effects but also for its architectural values. Both these types of lighting fixtures are targeted for certain uses and customers can used both in their homes as well as in commercial establishments.
