Good Low Profile Lighting Fixtures
The depth of the ceiling is a major factor to determine lighting fixtures you can choose. If there is limited space available in your ceiling void to mount a standard light units, then low profile lighting fixtures can be the solution. There are several choices of low profile lighting fixtures. And here are some of them. Since the fixture mounts inside the ceiling, a recessed lighting fixture provides you with one of the lowest profile lighting fixtures on the market. You can change the trim on recessed lighting fixtures to provide you with different types of lighting. Use an open trim for ambient lights, a baffled trim for task lighting or an eyeball trim to focus the light on a portrait or treasured piece of art. You can even install a recessed fixture in an enclosed shower stall using an enclosed trim to protect the fixture from moisture. Fluorescent low-profile fixtures may not be as prolific as their incandescent counterparts, but the small circumference of the fluorescent tubes allows for an exceptionally thin fixture profile.
They also require less electricity to produce practically the same amount of ambient light as an incandescent fixture. Because they are so thin, you can mount them under cabinets, in the garage, in the attic and even the basement. The availability of fluorescent lighting fixtures in different color temperatures allows you to change the mood of the room by changing the bulb; you can even replicate natural outdoor lighting in any room in your home.
