Recessed Lighting for Enclosed Screened Porch

aag3December 29, 2009

I have recently enclosed a screened porch and will need some additional ceiling lighting. It will be used as a office and TV room. The ceiling will be sloped and covered in bead board. What is the best recessed lighting for this room? I often hear the term "pot lights" used on the the decorating shows. I have no experience or knowledge of the different lighting products out there. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

Recessed light fixtures in sloped ceilings usually require such large oval openings that they don't hide the lamps which is pretty annoying IMHO. I usually resort to track lighting. Some of the low voltage fixtures are pretty nice these days.

I would use 4" Low Voltage recessed fixtures with a regressed adjustable gimbal trim, such as a Juno IC44-444bk.
I'm assuming that the ceiling is insulated and I have suggested an insulated recessed housing.
By using a recessed gimbal trim ,you will control any uncomfortable glare, and the gimbal will compensate any ceiling up to a 4/12 pitch.
If you want the best trim substitute trhe 447cwh clear alzak.
Use a 50mr16/fl(EXN)lamp.
Don't cheaap out with a 120volt GU10 as the lamp is just a piece of junk.
