Recessed Light

Lights are gifted with a spectacular feature- they have the ability to tweak their brightness in diverse range of intensities and every particular intensity imparts a phenomenal ambiance to the aura. There was a time when the brightest was the exquisite. But the mystery began to unfold when various intensities of lights were put to experiment and every single grade of light seem to leave a distinguished feel in the aura. 

Then the concept of hidden lighting emerged. The lighting fixtures went deep down the surface that became the actual source of the light. The beams became subtle yet continued to transfix the moods of one and all. And this concept is being followed extensively in modern homes. 

Well, there are number of ways in which you can install hidden lights to create a dramatic effect. Here are ten best picks recommended by some of the best design professionals from India.
