When it comes to selecting the right illume, both practicality and style usually come to mind. Installing illume into a recessed ceiling or wall can make the perfect design conscious lighting solution.

Recessed illumes are set back into the wall or ceiling that the light is fixed to. They create the feeling of a bigger space and blend easily into your wall or ceiling.

The best part is that they are super versatile in terms of the space you can use them in. They are ideal for rooms with low ceilings as they help you savour your ceiling space, and they look beautiful in a hallway or kitchen, or where natural light may not reach.

They create a minimalist ambience and are ideal for the design conscious. Just like all of the illume range they are quick and easy to install and come with all of the classic benefits of illume;

No heat transfer – Unlike a traditional skylight, ambient room temperatures are not compromised by a shaft breaking the integrity of insulation against external conditions. This means the illume will retain heat in winter and repel heat in summer more efficiently than a shafted skylight system, further reducing utility costs.

No leaks – Fitting an illume requires no modification to the roof structure. With all roof materials remaining intact, there is no opportunity for water to pool or trickle down through the light diffuser.

Environmentally friendly – illume is entirely powered by solar energy with no mains power or batteries required. Just like a traditional skylight, illume brightens your space during the day reflecting external light conditions and reducing utility energy costs.
