Why We Love Recessed Lighting 4" Trims
Recessed lighting brings a beautiful minimalistic touch to the home's lighting. This clever style of lighting works with the existing ceiling space rather than adding clutter to the room's footprint. The versatile 4-inch recessed lighting trim options offer effective illumination and a timeless look that works well throughout the home. Trims are available in round or square styles with plenty of choices in finish color. You can also turn a greener leaf by choosing LED lighting for a more eco-friendly approach.
Where 4" Recessed Lighting Trims Work Best
By and large, finished basements are one of the most popular places to install recessed lights. An assortment of attractive recessed lighting trims make it easy to find a style that looks great with the rest of the space without calling unwanted attention or detracting from the existing look. Beyond the basement, recessed lighting with a 4-inch trim works beautifully in the kitchen, creating a spacious common space. A playroom or recreational room can benefit from this style of lighting as well. The truth is, recessed lights can work well in the bedroom or pretty much any room of the home if you want a subtle approach to your lighting.

Choosing the Best 4-Inch Recessed Light Trims
Selecting appropriate recessed lighting for different places in the home takes a little investigation before you make a purchase. The key technical aspects you will need to consider include the style of housing (new construction versus remodel), whether the lights can come in contact with thermal insulation (IC versus Non-IC rated) and whether you prefer line voltage or low voltage. Next, consider the location and how far apart you will space the lights. In most cases, you can divide the height of the ceiling by two to find the ideal spacing for your lights. Using this method, a room with an eight-foot ceiling would have lights spaced apart every four feet. Once you know how far apart you'll space the lights, you can then calculate how many recessed lights you will need to complete the lighting system for the space. Also keep in mind your desired trim shape--round or square--and the color of the finish.

If you like how the various 4-inch recessed lighting trim options can brighten up your home, you might also enjoy other options in this lighting class, ranging from petite 2-inch recessed lighting trims to larger 6-inch recessed trim options. The larger the diameter you choose, the more light output you can expect. Bigger diameters are great for living rooms and great rooms, while a smaller diameter (like two inches) will better suite a bedroom. Add a luxurious touch with decorative recessed lighting trims, instantly adding a touch of sparkle to the space at hand. Lastly, control the light output of your can lights by placing them on a dimmer switch. Just ensure the trims you choose are listed as dimmable.
