Track Lighting or Recessed Lighting
Track lighting is inexpensive and attractive and can be used just about anywhere. It can provide both ambient and accent lighting and is very easy to install. Unfinished basements have open ceilings that lend themselves to running new electrical sources to just about any part of the basement and then covering up the work with an attractive drop-ceiling. A word of caution: if your ceiling is 7 feet or lower, track lighting may not be a good option to consider since a 6+ footer runs the risk of bumping into to it and/or having the glare shine directly into their eyes. Recessed lighting is an alternative to consider if you have a low ceiling. If you consider these, try to avoid the harsh look usually resulting from fluorescent fixtures. Instead, you can select recessed incandescent can-type lighting that can be either spot or floodlights. If you use a dimmer switch with these lights you may find the effect very attractive. Keep in mind that you are dealing with older, less energy efficient technology when you use incandescents, but sometimes these are the only practical considerations when you’re dealing with low ceilings.
Here are a few other minor considerations to keep in mind when thinking about basement lighting: You made need additional power sources installed in your circuit box.
