5. LED CAN LIGHTING WITH VARIABLE OUTPUT

image

LED RECESSED CEILING can lights are available now at most hardware, retail, and price club membership stores. I like these lights because they are dimmable, durable, and easy to use.

There are limitless ways to arrange these lights in patterns. I recommend either a grid or a circle, but you might also experiment with other shapes like a square, an x-pattern, etc.
