Wafer Lighting: Best Recessed Lighting in Ceiling

Best Recessed Lighting

Hello everyone. I’m Caleb with Dansie Design Build in Herriman, Utah. I wanted to talk to you about recessed lighting. Lighting must be one of the most essential things in your house. That’s why basements look and feel like basements. That’s how you can upgrade any room in your home.

Today, we’ll discuss some special lights that can fit anywhere on your ceiling. That’s regardless of what kind of structure you have above the ceiling, trusses, joists, or any ductwork that might be in the way. You can work around all those things and put your lights right wherever you want them.

Wafer Lighting in the Hobbit House

We are in the Hobbit house we built and designed, and I want to show you these lights up here. These can fit anywhere in your whole ceiling. And in this particular case, this wafer lighting was right underneath a joist.

The perfect layout just made it so that nothing else could work if we wanted to keep that light on the grid system we established with the rest of the lights and make it work for this room.

This is the actual wafer lighting that mounts up the ceiling. It has two little spring-loaded tabs that clip this to the drywall. It’s only half an inch thick, so it fits up in the drywall without using any of the space above the drywall. You can see where the joist is in the way and how this can work right around the joist and not interfere.

Additionally, this particular model has an option to change the temperature of the lighting. If you like the 5,000, 4,000, 3,500, or 2,700, dial that temperature for your exact room.
