How can indirect cove lighting provide an inviting glow to any home? This special type of linear illumination can set the mood and add ambiance with the flip of a switch. Cove lights provide a warm and cozy feel to any room.  Architectural features or an entire ceiling can be showcased with this type of hidden illumination. Light sources include led, incandescent as well as low voltage xenon. LED technology is typically favored as it can reduce the heat output while providing greater energy efficiency. It is also easy to install for a “Do It Yourselfers” due to the safe low voltage DC current, simple wiring, and small fixture profile.

As with any light source, glare can be produced when used on reflective surfaces such as lacquer or gloss finishes. Always perform a test before mounting any cove light to find the best mounting position. The ability to adjust the brightness with the use of a dimmer switch will add to the overall ambiance of the space
