I think I went overboard with installation of recessed lights in our living room. We have 6 recessed lights (ultra thin LED wafer like) in the living room and two switches connecting to each set of 3 lights. Even if we turn on one set, its is very bright and harsh on our eyes before bedtime.
The recessed lights are bright white and 900 lumens each while the living room is 20 ft x 13 ft with ceiling height of 10-12 ft.
I'm thinking of following two options as a solution but open to any other effective solution:
- Add a dimmer - Setting the dimmer at 50% be less
- Apply a softening film
Are there any possible DIY on the softening film? Does the privacy films available in market for mirrors work well for this?
