Tips on Choosing Trims for Recessed Lighting

Recessed lighting is one of the most attractive and versatile options on the market. However, don’t let its inconspicuousness fool you – these lights are potent! For an unobtrusive effect, place them throughout the ceiling in your office or home, direct them towards a special piece of art, or position them above your desk and sink for task lighting.

Trims are available in many different styles and colors, and they are the only part of recessed lighting that’s visible. When buying them, be sure you choose trim that matches with your new or existing housing. Let’s look at the options:

  • REFLECTORS maximize lighting output. They are perfect for accent, task and general applications for both commercial and residential needs.
