Track lighting is a contemporary fixture that’s as perfect for new construction as it is for renewed spaces in existing homes.Tracks are versatile, allowing flexibility in sizing, placement, and fixture styles.
Track lights can add extra light to work spaces like kitchen islands. Bright and narrow spot lights are an excellent option for task lighting, especially in a cooler color temperature (around 4000K-5000K). This range usually makes people feel more alert and energized than warmer color temperatures, which is definitely a good thing when handling sharp knives.
Hallways and entryways also can benefit from using track lights. Mount the track down the middle of the hallway and begin aiming the lamp heads at one of the walls, alternating the direction of each lamp head so the light is even. This illuminates the whole hallway and, as an added bonus, highlights any family photos or artwork.
