Lighting Novice

Lighting novice is putting it mildly. My husband and I have cared so little about the lighting in our NYC apartment that I’m sitting here right now typing this post under some of the most hideous yellowish overhead lighting imaginable. I refuse to let that happen in our new house. We’re going to get lamps, I promise. But, we’re also interested in installing recessed lighting in the living room. The problem? We have no idea how to do it. I mean, that’s okay, we can follow the instructions in our new handy dandy Home Depot book. But, our new living room has a ceiling with no overhead lighting at all. It’s a fully finished ceiling. This may seem like a completely asinine question to anyone who has ever done…well, ANY home improvement work at all, but I don’t get it. If you want to install recessed lighting in a room with no overhead lighting, how on earth do you know where to make the holes?

I know this must be a stupid question, I just know it. But, I’m not too proud to ask it.
