Recessed or can lighting affords a clean, streamlined look for your lighting by hiding all of the wiring and internals of the light in a recessed housing. These ceiling light fixtures can be used in combination with other lights fixtures to add needed light to a room when one fixture isn't adequate.
Recessed lighting is available in two ways: new construction housing, or remodel housings. New construction housings sit between joists and are typically installed during construction. Remodel housings fit into holes cut in a finished ceiling. If your ceiling has insulation, use an IC-Rated housing to give 3 inches of clearance and prevent fire hazards. Non-IC housings can be used if you do not have insulation, or if you have a sufficiently large gap separating your housing and insulation.
