Recessed lighting trims are components of recessed lighting fixtures (also called can lights) that sit partially inside the housing to cover the edges of the fixture. These pieces are crucial parts that help define the look of the lamp and the type and direction of light that it emits. There are four main types of recessed lighting trims to choose from: Baffle, Eyeball, Shower, and Wall Wash.

  • Baffle Trims - A baffle trim consists of a simple ribbed enclosure that provides a clean finished look to the fixture without affecting the direction or quality of light emanating from the lamp. These are one of the most popular trim options, appropriate for any circumstance where you would like your recessed lights to provide area lighting.
  • Eyeball Trims – Eyeball trims, also called Gimbals, are trims that allow you to pivot the head of the lamp point it in a single direction. This adds functionality to the fixture and allows it to create the perfect lighting to highlight a piece of art or emphasize an architectural feature.
  • Shower Trims – As the name implies, shower trims are frequently used in lighting that is placed above showers. They are wet rated and feature a lens that covers the recessed part of the light, protecting it from humidity or splashes. The lens on shower trims often features frosted glass to create a softer quality of light that won’t be glaring in a space that commonly includes glossy finishes.
  • Wall Wash Trims – These trims, also sometimes referred to as Eyelid Trims, partially cover the light to direct the illumination in a single direction, effectively “washing a wall” in light. This angle can provide subtle and diffused ambient lighting that makes a space feel bright and open, even in the evening.

Whichever one of these types of trim you go with, be sure to double check that you are purchasing the correct size to fit the housing of your light. Common trim sizes include four, five, and six inch sizes that disperse different amounts of light for various environments.
