In some spaces, large lighting fixtures can be a fantastic focal point for the eye; yet, in many others, you don’t want a lighting fixture bulging out of the ceiling and intruding on the rest of the room. Recessed lighting, which installs light bulbs slightly above the surface of your ceiling, is an option.
Recessed lighting fixtures are all based on the same concept: recessed lighting bulbs are installed inside your ceiling, directly above the ceiling panel. The many varieties of recessed light trim are available to serve to distinguish them. Here are nine distinct light trims that complement recessed lighting.
- Cut open
With this sort of trim, the light bulb is almost exactly flush with the ceiling. The interior of the lighting fixture is obscured.
- Reflector trimming
This form of trim features a reflective surface inside the lighting fixture. This enhances the quantity of light that the recessed light bulb produces.
- Remove the baffles
The most prevalent style of recessed lighting, with the light bulb enclosed in a black ribbed enclosure designed to decrease glare and reflection.
- Finish with a pinhole
Close the pinholes Recessed lighting puts all of a bulb’s light into a narrow downward channel. This gives the room a chilly, strikingly modern aspect.
- Trim the eyeballs
This is a movable trim that allows you to adjust the angle of the light bulb.
- Adjust the gimbal
An eyeball trim with a bulb that is recessed deeper into the ceiling. When you adjust the bulb in a gimbal trim, the housing will obscure some of the light.
- Is less trimming possible?
This form of lighting trim does not require an electrical box. Instead, the light connects straight into your home’s electrical wiring.
- Trim the shower head
Shower trim is used to conceal recessed lights installed in a wet location. The light bulb will be shielded by tempered glass in this design, which will keep water out.
- Remove the wall wash
A shield is used in this trim to restrict some of the light emitted by the bulb, thereby focusing the remainder of the light in the style of a wall wash or feature light.
• Unlike huge, typical lighting fixtures, recessed lights do not draw attention to themselves. They blend perfectly with the ceilings and walls, allowing other pieces of furniture to take center stage.
• LED lights complement recessed lighting fixtures. LED recessed lighting has becoming normal practice as towns push energy efficiency.
• Look for recessed lighting that is IC-rated. This indicates it is “insulation contact” safe; if it comes into touch with fiber glass insulation, nothing untoward will happen.
TRIM LIGHT lights only use LED lighting technology, which is intended to outlast typical incandescent bulbs while consuming a fraction of the electricity.
