I'm installing recessed lighting, how far apart should should I place them?
Recessed lighting is great, especially for rooms with low ceilings. But how far apart should they be when you install them?
To determine how far apart to space your recessed lights, divide the height of the ceiling by two. If a room has an 8 foot ceiling, you should space your recessed lights approximately 4 feet apart. If the ceiling is 10 feet, you'll want to put about 5 feet of space in between each fixture.
SPACING = HEIGHT OF CEILING / 2
