How to Select
Choosing Recessed Lighting Trim
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 recessed 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 decorative recessed lighting trim for your recessed lighting system.
When selecting a recessed lighting trim, size and compatibility with existing electric outlets and recessed downlight housings are really important. There’s no point of ordering a lamp or light bulb if it won’t fit the recessed lighting system. Try to specify the trims’ size right away so that you don’t look for options that won’t fit you. Most conventional recessed 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 recessed lighting, ensure that new lamps cane be retrofit. What this means is that the lighting fixture is compatible with old electric work. However, when you’re installing a lighting system from scratch, a new recessed trim 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 Recessed 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.
