Track lighting can be found almost everywhere – from commercial spaces, to residential spaces. Track lighting is a great option for builders and contractors, and can brighten up office spaces, warehouses, and meeting rooms.
Track lighting can be used to highlight furniture, art, or brighten up a wall in your home or office. It’s also a great option for homeowners or business owners who don’t want to cut into the ceiling to run wire and add electrical boxes.
Whether you’re a contractor working on a complete remodel for a client, or a designer trying to brighten up a room, consider these pros and cons before choosing track lighting:
Pro: Track lighting is easy to install. With the same installation basics of regular lighting, track lighting is adjustable and comes in many different styles.
Con: Track lighting fixtures may cost more when compared to other fixtures that connect directly to an electrical box.
Pro: Track lighting highlights specific features well. If you’re a business owner and want to shine a spotlight on a special award, artwork, or a piece of furniture, track lighting is a better option than hanging pendants.
Track lighting is either assembled or can be retrofit – customers need to determine the type of track system if they want to add to an existing track system or are looking for replacements. The track heads you buy might look exactly the same as the ones you’re trying to replace, but the connectors could be different.
When retrofitting a track system, make sure you:
- Know if you have a single circuit or two circuit track
- Determine he correct track lengths and connectors
- Determine the power source
- Know which fixtures to add – spot heads or pendants
