Trim
The trim is the part of the can that we can see. The most commonly installed are LED trims and baffle trims. We offer both white and black baffle trims that you can put whatever bulb in you like. If we're installing recessed lights for the first time we prefer to install LED trims as you don't have to worry about bulb replacement. If black baffle trims are already installed in the home then we can match them. Damp rated recessed lights are required over areas like a tub or shower.  We install the LED trim for this application.

Light Color

Lights are rated in Kelvin which tells us what color to expect. Incandescent 65 watt bulbs are 2700 Kelvin, although this color is natural for an incandescent bulb you can get the same color from a 65 watt equivalent LED bulb. The best size for a 6" recessed light is a BR30 and the best size for a 4" recessed light is a BR20. The LED recessed light trims that we carry come with 5 selectable color options: 2700K, 3000K, 3500K, 4000K and 5000K.

Dimmers
All lights that we provide are dimmable and compatible with most dimmers. If you're thinking about providing your own materials make sure LEDs are dimmable before putting them on a dimmer. Bulbs that aren't compatible with dimmers will flicker or hum. We do carry two styles of dimmers or you can provide your own dimmer as well.

Gimbal
Gimbal trims have a 30° tilt with a 360° rotation. The gimbal sits flush with the ceiling when pointed straight down.  The gimbal gives a more modern design to the directional light. 

Recessed lighting, sometimes called can or pot lighting, is becoming increasingly more common in

homes. It adds a modern touch and perfect ambient light. The most common size is 6 inches,

but 4 inch is also available.


Spacing
For an 8-10’ ceiling height cans should be placed 3-4’ from each other, for a 12-15’ ceiling cans should be placed about 6’ apart. Remember to keep your cans about 3’ from walls to avoid harsh shadows that will make your wall look shorter. Be sure to place leave a little extra space between the fan blades and the lights so the fan doesn't "chop" the light when on.
