Install the recessed fixture in a position that gives the most amount of light to the desired section of the room. Find an electrical supply nearby with adequate amperage.
Using either the included template or the recessed fixture, trace the required hole. Use either a drywall saw or a jigsaw to cut the opening. Remove any insulation that interferes with the installation process.
Following local code, install the proper length and gauge wiring for the fixture. Properly tighten all connections. If necessary, hire an experienced professional to help with this step.
Using the included supports, secure the fixture in the ceiling. Connect the electrical supply to the light, and install any trim pieces.
Make sure all electrical connections are secure and properly cabled. Make sure there are no kinks or bends in the wiring.
Pick the right bulb for the space. Flood lights cover more area, and spot lights can be used to highlight a specific piece. Screw in the chosen bulb, and wipe away any fingerprints or oils that can reduce the bulb's lifespan.
