Say Goodbye to Dim Rooms!

Depending on a room’s size and shape, having a single light source with some supplementary lamps is often not enough to properly illuminate it. And aside from when you are trying to sleep, most people don’t want to spend much time in a poorly lit room.


If you have an area or two in your home that is dimly lit and you would like brighter lights to make it more usable, then you’ve come to the right place. HedgeHog Electric is here to tell you all about recessed lighting.

Call 877-673-9751 to schedule recessed lighting services in St. George. We look forward to taking care of your home!

What Is Recessed Lighting?

Recessed lighting is a type of lighting that is set into the ceiling, rather than hanging from it or protruding out from a flush mount. Sometimes, this type of lighting is also called downlights or can lighting.

No matter the name, recessed lighting comes with three distinct parts that—depending on what parts are used—define the type of recessed lighting that it is. Knowing the available types of recessed lighting can help you determine what kind you want to be installed in your home.

Type of Trim for Recessed Lighting

One of the more visible parts of a recessed light is the trim. What kind of trim you prefer will highly dictate how you use your recessed lights, as these various types of trims provide different benefits.

The different types of trim are:


Open trim

Preserving a smooth surface with the ceiling, open trim sets the light bulb flush with the ceiling or only a little extended beyond the trim. This type of trim provides unobstructed light from the bulb.


Baffle trim

This type of trim has the light bulb sit deeper in the housing and isn’t flush with the ceiling. To prevent light glare, the baffle trim is ribbed.


Wall-wash trim

To help illuminate wall hangings and other wall-flush decorations, wall-wash trim places a shield over half of the recessed light opening to help focus the beam. That way, while the light is mostly covered, it will focus on the decor item you want to highlight.


Eyeball trim

You are able to directionally move the eyeball trim recessed lights, shifting the interior light to illuminate the area you are interested in lighting. This type of trim sticks out the most from the ceiling out of all the types of recessed lighting.


Reflector trim

If you are looking for spotlight illumination, reflector trim is what you want. The interior is mirrored to provide extra reflection and light, with the light bulb recessed into the can light housing. For some types of reflector trim, you can choose the tint of the mirrored surface.


Pinhole trim

Providing a narrow beam of light, pinhole trim recessed lighting is excellent for highlighting display items. The light bulb sits recessed in the housing.


Gimbal trim

Similar to the eyeball trim, gimbal trim allows you to pivot the light bulb housing, though it is a less rounded housing and sticks out less than eyeball trim. Some of the light can become blocked by the housing if you pivot the gimbal trim fully in.


Shower trim

To protect the light from developing issues in wet rooms, there is a tempered glass covering over the recessed housing. Shower trim is mostly flush with the ceiling.

The light bulbs you use in your recessed lighting will depend on the size of the housing and how you intend to use your recessed lighting.
