the easy way is, us the wall lamp 295 and put it into niche via 3D mode. then set it's elevation according to the height of the top edge og niche minus 10 millimeters (or similar value in ft. in case you do not use metric system)

Thanks so much. I'll try to do it.@ Grace Simmons
If using custom modeling its the same method as using HS niche but placement is going to be a little harder, simply b/c you can't see inside the model unless in roam or 3D views. Small suggestion: click on custom ceiling, choose lights, add to favs & then go back to design interface w/o making any changes to ceiling. Spot lights were/are not in regular HS lighting inventory. Try models: 50616697, 21951, 52837886, 562460, 50616697, 11953. You can adj lighting appearance in render interface under "add light". 2/2 Have Fun!!!!

If you are using HS niche (easiest way): measure from fl to top of the niche. Pick light (using 'ctrl to restrain snapping/elevation) & elevate light to that height. Check placement by going to 'RCP view' to make sure that it is in niche. Lock the light in place so it doesn't accidentally move. A second way is to use the cement block model 532939, change material to light (premium texture>luminous materials) & size accordingly. 1/
