Recessed Lighting Trims & Retrofits

The first consideration with recessed lighting is what type you   should get, sometimes referred to as the panel style.  You have several main options, each with   their own advantages:

  • Baffle cladding: This type of   recessed luminaire has grooves made to block excess light.  This reduces glare and shadows.  Choose this type for pure and soft ambient   light.  Black baffles can further   reduce glare.  However, choose white if   you want the luminaire to match a light-colored ceiling.

  • Reflector cladding: These are   provided with additional shine that surrounds the light bulb so that the   luminaire itself reflects more light into the room.  If you want a brighter light, reflector   bezels are a good choice.

  • Adjustable trim: If you want to   customize recessed lighting and retrofits to create accent lighting or   spotlights, you need an adjustable bezel.    Terms to look for in adjustable lighting include eyelid, gimbal,   adjustable cone, eyeball, and wall wash.

  • Wet place or lens: This type of   recessed luminaire protects the light bulb and light housing from moisture   and wetness.  This can be a must have   when placing your recessed lights in damp areas like a bathroom.  It is common to see the terms   “damp” or “wet” to indicate how much moisture the   luminaire is protected from.
