Cove Lighting Q & A

See All Q & A

What is cove lighting?

Cove lighting is an ambient or accent lighting technique. The illumination is often indirect, designed to wash a wall or a ceiling while the light is tucked into a built-in cove. Coves are often built into a wall. Coves may also be built into the ceiling. With no visible light source, cove lighting is typically used by architects and lighting designers to highlight an architectural feature, such as a wall, crown molding, or ceiling.

What are the best light fixtures to use for cove lighting?

LED lighting is the ideal technology for cove lighting applications. With minimal heat, and solid state build, LED linear lights offer flexibility and can fit snug into nearly any cove design. With a range of color temperatures and crisp high-CRI (Color-Rendering Index) light, LED cove lights offer warm or cool lighting to residential and commercial applications.

Is cove lighting a good idea?
