Check the color temperature: different spotlights have different color temperatures, and the key is to combine with the overall indoor color. If you need to use spotlights to illuminate dark colored objects, choose low color temperature spotlights, otherwise use high color temperature spotlights.
Attention to word of mouth: there is an inevitable problem that spotlights will emit high temperature after being embedded in the ceiling or wall. If the quality of spotlights is not up to standard, they are usually prone to potential safety hazards.

The line shall be reserved according to the decoration plan, so that the decoration workers can make holes in the ceiling and properly reserve the spotlight slot. If you haven’t reserved a space, even if you buy a spotlight, you know where to install it.
