Recessed lighting is installed directly inside a ceiling, wall, or other surface. Recessed fixtures are comprised of three main components, housing, trim, and bulb. Housing is the bulk of the fixture which is hidden within the wall or ceiling and contains the electrical connections of the fixture. Trim is the decorative, visible portion of the fixture and may include baffles, reflectors or shades. The final component, is the bulb, the part of the fixture that produces light.
Because you install these fixtures inside a building surface, you’ll need to choose recessed lights that match the access you have and the space available. You can use new construction lights if you’re working with unfinished walls or in ceilings with attic access. If you’re installing recessed lights in a finished surface, remodel fixtures are a better choice. You can install them from the finished side of the wall or ceiling.
Materials present in the wall also affect the fixture you choose. If there’s insulation present, you must use an IC-rated recessed light, which won’t overheat in these conditions. Specialty lights with shallow housings are ideal for thin walls, and angled fixtures are the best recessed lighting for pitched ceilings. You can also use recessed fixtures outdoors, but choose wet location rated recessed lights if they’ll come in contact with water.
