This tutorial shows you how to install recessed lighting into a room that already has existing lighting fixtures. Installing recessed lighting into your kitchen or living areas updates the look of your home, and brightens rooms and provides directional lighting to key areas such as a countertop or cooking area. You should be sure that your existing circuit will be able to handle the new load of your recessed lights. Also, note that some municipalities may require that you obtain a permit before performing this work. You should also have a licensed electrician inspect your work before you reestablish power.
