Shop Recessed Lighting & Can Ceiling Lights at Capitol Lighting's 1800lighting.com
When your lighting goal is to provide low-profile overhead lighting with customizable features, recessed lights — also referred to as can lights or can lights — are the obvious choice. These ubiquitous, versatile lights include streamlined housings installed into the ceiling so that they only minimally protrude into the space below the ceiling. Recessed lighting fixtures are ultra-practical and make great options for ambient lighting and task lighting alike. They're finished with decorative trims to ensure that they match your unique home decór. 1800Lighting by Capitol Lighting is your top resource for recessed lighting, whether you're looking to upgrade to LED recessed lights or want to refresh your existing styles with good-looking recessed lighting trims. For further information, check out our recessed lighting tips.
Different Types of Recessed Lighting
Recessed ceiling light fixtures come in a variety of sizes, shapes, and trims. Trims include:
- Open Trim – The bulb is flush with the surface.
- Reflector Trim – There is a mirrored surface within the fixture to maximize lighting.
- Baffle Trim – A black ribbed housing covers the bulb to minimize glare.
- Pinhole trim – The light shines through a very narrow hole.
- Eyeball trim – The bulb can be adjusted to shine in various directions.
- Gimbal Trim – Similar to an eyeball trim, but the bulb is set deeper inside.
- Canless Trim – The bulb is directly wired into the house's electrical system. No can is required.
- Shower Trim – If you need lighting in a wet location, like a shower stall, this type of bulb is safe and will keep water out.
- Wall Wash Trim – This is a bulb with a reflective feature that shines back into the wall.
Shop trims in white, brushed satin, bronze, clear, black, chrome, gold, gray, and more at 1800Lighting. Bulbs for recessed lighting include incandescent, halogen, or the increasingly popular LED. The benefits of LED lights are that they use low voltage, last next to forever, and are cool to the touch. This is the main reason that you so often see them in new construction, but many people are choosing them when they remodel their homes or retrofit their current lighting.
Difference Between Can Ceiling Light & Recessed Light
Many people have difficulty differentiating between a canned light and a recessed light, but the question is misleading. A can is a type of housing for recessed lighting. The bulb sits inside the can. There are also canless-trim recessed lights that directly wire into the electrical system.
