Pot lights (sometimes referred to as recessed lighting) have become very popular in Toronto homes in recent years, and for good reason. Sitting flush with the ceiling, this type of lighting gives a room a modern and fresh look. The light bulb can be adjusted to point in various directions and is low heat and energy, yet it is very bright, helping to save the homeowner money on their utility bills.
Pot lights can be installed in just about any room in the home including the basement. They are ideal for rooms with lower ceilings as they do not take up valuable head room. Outdoor pot lights can improve the safety and security of a home while also being a very attractive feature. They can be installed under eves or soffits so that they will not be subjected to the weather which can ruin the electrical(The Reno Pros will contract out all electrical work to registered electrical contractors licensed with the Electrical Safety Authority.) wiring. If your home does not have a sheltered place for outdoor pot lights, special low moisture or waterproof lights can also be used.
Other benefits of pot lights include that they are energy efficient and because they are so highly in demand, they can also add value to your home when it is time to sell.

The team arrived on time and ran every idea by me, as well as recommended what materials are best to be used in what area.

"I was hesitant at first to rely on a third-party service to re-do two bedrooms in my house but the guys at RenoPros assured me they would work closely with me to fit my needs. I chose two different designs, and now both bedrooms actually feel good to be in. Great job"

Pot lights are a simple way to brighten up a dark basement. By placing these lights around the perimeter of the room, they can make your basement not only brighter, but also give it the appearance of being more spacious.

For example, you would want more pot lights in an exercise or games room but less in an entertainment room. We have all the building supplies in Toronto and experienced team to help you achieve your needs.
Pot lights are a great way of brightening and freshening up a room without having to worry about whether a certain “fixture” is going to go with the rest of your décor. The lights themselves can be tilted in various directions meaning that the homeowner can have light where he or she wants it.
Alternatively, you may wish for a pot light to illuminate a certain focal point in the room such as a favourite piece of art.
While there are many possible configurations for these lights, homeowners should avoid having a row of lights running through the centre of the room as this will give the appearance of a runway and detract from the room’s appearance rather than add to it.
Stores, office buildings and other commercial buildings can benefit from the use of pot lights. Being very energy efficient, they can help to reduce costs, yet because they are bright and adjustable they can be tilted toward work stations to give your employees a more comfortable work environment.
Used in stores, these lights can be used to highlight merchandise or other features.
Commercial pot lights should only be installed by licensed contractors.
Installing pot lights requires some expertise in electrical* hookups but also in design and knowing where to place them so your room will look its best. The design and electrical* teams at the The Reno Pros will work together to make sure your pot lights are both functional and look great.
