What Type of Recessed Lighting is Available?

There are many types of recessed lighting available. Here’s a look at the different types and features of each.

Open Trim:  This type of recessed trim is flush with the ceiling and allows for the bulb to protrude a little from the surface. This type of trim normally allows for more light to reflect out by not restricting the light from the bulb.

Pinhole Trim: Works to keep the light to a tight single beam. Spotlight type of effect and is used to highlight certain areas of a room.

Baffle Trim: One of the most popular of recessed lights. This light has a ribbed interior that helps reflect light and reduce glare. The light bulb placement is made easier by this design also.

Shower Trim: Like it’s name sake this fixture is perfect for showers, and bathrooms. The light is made with tempered glass to withstand moisture.

Wall-Wash Trim: Like it’s name sake this fixture is perfect for showers, and bathrooms. The Trim face is made with tempered glass to withstand moisture.
