Cove Lighting

Indirect lighting solutions for ledges, recessed areas and valences

 

Cove lighting is a lighting technique that directs light toward the ceiling from one or more sides of a room to diffuse illumination. This effect is also called ambient luminescence. Cove lighting is found in ledges, recesses, ceiling valences and high on walls. This type of indoor lighting is popular because it hides the fixture and creates a dramatic effect. The light of this technique can be directed either up toward the ceiling or down creating a wall washing effect. Applications of cove lighting can be found in residential and commercial settings. In residential settings, cove lighting is often used above cabinets in the kitchen. Because cove fixtures are hidden, the differentiating factor of cove lighting is in how they project light onto walls or ceilings. Eaton offers a diverse array of cove lighting.
