Recessed Lighting Trims

A recessed lighting trim consists of a light recessed (sitting back) inside with a trim to control the light. The lighting trim controls the light’s functionality and provides a certain aesthetic or architectural look. It concentrates the light based on the type of trim. Recessed lighting trim serves two main purposes:

a) Direct the light and sculpt light downward
b) Provide an architectural finished look

Recessed lighting trims have a lot of versatility. There are a number of styles to improve your kitchen, hallway, bathroom, and bedroom.
In order to choose a recessed lighting trim, you first need to determine your objective and desired affect.

How to Select

How to select Recessed Lighting Trims

The decision to install recessed lighting in your apartment, house or office will help you save a significant amount of energy and money, in addition to creating a great sense of ambiance in every room. Selecting the perfect lighting trim is complicated since many factors should be taken into account. This guide will help you become aware of what details should be considered in order to find perfect lighting fixtures for your house.

When selecting lighting trims, size and compatibility with existing electric outlets and housings are really important. There’s no point of ordering a lamp or light bulb if it won’t fit the network’s requirements. Try to specify the trims’ size right away so that you don’t look for options that won’t fit you. Most conventional lighting trims are compatible with 6” and 5” housings.

The trims’ style is the next factor to consider. The style depends on the system’s specifications. If you have an old electric system in the house and are simply replacing old fixtures with the recessed lighting, ensure that new lamps are retrofit. What this means is that the lighting fixture is compatible with old electric work. However, when you’re installing a system from scratch, new trims style is your perfect choice.

Operation and installation costs should also be considered when you are looking for recessed lighting trims. If a trim or their combination requires too much space, time and energy to be installed, in addition to spending more electricity than other devices normally would, you might want to look for other options. Among lighting trims of similar sizes and energy efficiency level always select the option that offers some additional features.

Design of Trim and Color

The design of the trim and its color options are the last, but certainly not least, factors to consider. Since the trim of any recessed lighting fixture is the only part of the device that is visible, you need to ensure it matches the walls’ and ceiling’s décor. With wide variety of color options and hundreds of various designs that are offered at today’s stores—including Westside Wholesale—selecting trim to fit your needs won’t be a problem. In addition to that, you might want to look for a trim that is made from durable and easily cleaned material since such features will make the maintenance much simpler.

The price of recessed lighting trim should not be the deciding factor when looking to purchase recessed lighting trim. There are plenty of affordable options from leading manufacturers and well known brands so there’s no need to select the first cheapest option that you find.
