I am working on an article for Houzz.com on how to choose the right downlight trim, and it is turning out to be quite a challenge. The article is inspired by my earlier post here, but I wanted to simplify the ideas and provide something a little more helpful.
The problem is that choosing a downlight and its trim resists simplification with extraordinary skill. The best downlight trim for a particular home and a particular room and a particular task for a particular owner is, well, particularly specific. Getting there in five easy steps may not be possible.
But getting close might be. So I rolled up my proverbial shirtsleeves and go to work. First I sketched. Then I scribbled. Then I came up with what I thought was a masterful one-page step-by-step guide to choosing downlights. You’ll find a link to the PDF here: RecessedDownlights
I sat back and looked at it. My son Sam said “you have a particular gift for making visually attractive buying guides.” Heh. But I thought it was a tad too complicated for the Sunday Morning Houzz.com edition, so created the info graphic at the top. When the article comes out, I’ll post a link on my blog as usual.
In the meantime, I’d love to know if either the infographic or the buying guide are useful. And of course there will be more to come!
