What you may not know is how numerous your recessed lighting options are. Each recessed light is formed of two components—the housing and the trim. The housing refers to the way the lighting is mounted, and the trim is the visible part that frames the bulb.
The trim is customizable and comes in a variety of styles to best fit your needs:
Baffle trim: Baffle trims are the standard trims you see in the recessed lighting of living rooms and bedrooms. They are designed to absorb excess light and reduce glare, and are typically offered in black and white.
Reflector trim: Reflector trims feature a reflective interior that maximizes the amount of light given off. They are often used in very high ceilings and kitchens.
Adjustable trim: This type of trim allows the light bulb to float within the housing and be adjusted to point in specific directions. Recessed lighting with an adjustable trim is often used for accent lighting to highlight a specific area.
Lensed trim: Lensed trims have a lens over the bulb in order to protect the interior housing and the bulb from moisture. Lensed trims are popular for use in bathrooms, poolhouses, and anywhere there is a lot of moisture.
I was thrilled with their efficiency and customer service. He arrived the same day, identified the problem quickly and after the part I needed came in he was back right away to install. They even sent me a thank you for my business card! This is a company with superior electrical skills and top-notch customer service.M T
Recessed light fixtures offer standard line voltage, low voltage halogen, or fluorescent fixtures. The type you choose will depend on your personal preferences, where you intend to install it, and the housing you choose.
The basic sizes are 4, 5, or 6 inches in diameter. The 6-inch fixtures can be used in tall entryways or two-story hallways, while the smaller 4-inch sizes work better in smaller spaces. We can help you determine what size you need during a consultation.
