How you decide to light your SunPorch or ShadePorch sunroom kit can go a long way to creating a more enjoyable living space. In addition to making things brighter, well-designed lighting plays an important part in creating a comfortable atmosphere.
While there are many lighting choices, one solution is track lighting. With a track lighting system, individual lamps, or lighting heads, fit into tracks secured to your SunPorch or ShadePorch roof rafters. Because you install the tracks to suit your space, you end up with a custom configuration that's tailored to your needs. And once the track lighting is mounted, the lamps can be re-positioned along the tracks to vary the lighting effect.
When mounting track lighting in your SunPorch or ShadePorch, mount the tracks on the full-width roof rafters, not the 3 foot horizontal mullions. This will give you greater space to work. The track also doubles as a conduit to hide the wiring.
The track lighting shown below is an 8 foot linear track (straight line) purchased for $60 per track.
