Track lighting provides unique decorative accents to any room, new or old, while providing excellent function. Use it for any task-specific lighting such as reading or cooking. Aim direct light exactly where you need it. Highlight beautiful design elements in the room. Draw attention to your prized artwork. These are just a few advantages to using track lighting.
There are numerous factors to consider while deciding if track lighting is right for you. Why should I use it? What styles are available? How hard is it to install? Where can I use it? Where can I find it? Do I need a kit or individual pieces?
Versatility is a huge advantage to using a track lighting kit. It is a great way to add vibrant light to hard to light areas inside your house. Read a book in your favorite chair without turning every light in the room on. Adjust lights whenever a special occasion occurs to add that elegant touch.
Track lighting comes in infinite designs, colors, and lengths, making it the perfect solution for dull and dark rooms. Even if the lack of light isn’t an issue, they provide a simple way to change the look of a room. Styles range from elegant to industrial. Tracks vary in size, making it a snap to find the right fit for any room. Heads can be placed anywhere along the track, providing the ultimate versatility in every room.
Installation varies depending on the kit that you select. Using pre-existing electrical boxes make the process easy. The tracks themselves are a snap to install. Once the tracks are installed the heads can be mounted in any fashion you choose. If there are no pre-existing boxes, you need to consult your local electrician to have them installed. Existing outlets can be utilized for power, but only if their placement lies in close proximity to your installation.
Entire kits make it easy on the consumer to get everything they need for the installation process. Individual pieces can be purchased but this may prove difficult to ensure you have everything you need. It’s nice to know that you wont need to run back-and-forth between your home and the hardware store during the installation process. Kits typically include: tracks, light fixtures (heads), bulbs (sometimes spares), transformers, insulated cables, and instructional guide. Kits also include step-by-step installation guides, which is great for those of us that are less handy.
