What to Consider When Buying Recessed Lighting Trim
When upgrading the lighting or redecorating in your home, be sure not to neglect your ceiling. While it’s easy to make recessed lighting trim an afterthought, this detail can add value and beauty to any space.
Here are a few things to consider.
Blending vs. Decorating with Recessed Lighting Trim
Most of the trim you’ll find in box stores is designed to blend the lighting into the ceiling for a modern look. While this is adequate in many settings, it adds little to a room’s décor or ambience.
In more thoughtfully decorated spaces, including classically styled homes and business settings, the trim can be an embellishment that creates a stunning finish. If you desire elegance in addition to function, you’ll want to do more than simply blend your light fixtures in with the ceiling.
When decorating a room with recessed lighting trim, choose a style that matches the existing aesthetics. Consider the coloring as well as whether the finish is matte or metallic. At Beaux-Arts Classic Products, we offer 13 gorgeous trim finishes, including several metallic options, pewter, antique cherry, Chinese red, black and white.
You can also choose from a variety of styles including Tuscany, Victorian, and Florentine. And if you really want to take your décor to the next level, try a recessed lighting chandelier with gorgeous drop crystals.
Recessed Lighting Trim Sizing
Recessed lighting canisters come in several sizes, so it’s important to take measurements before you order your trim. Traditionally, canisters have been 6” in diameter, but more recently they have been in 4”, 5” and 3”..
To make matters more complicated is the evolution of LED lights. These are more economical and make a lot of sense in most applications. LEDE retrofits are a smartly designed combination of the bulb and baffle all in one piece.
If you have LED retrofits in your ceiling, you’ll want to measure the outside diameter of the retrofits and match them with the correct size of decorative trim. At Beaux-Arts, we offer trim for every standard size.
Quality in Construction
Not all lighting trim is constructed with the amount of craftsmanship that we value at Beaux-Arts. As a matter of fact Beaux-Arts Victorian Recessed Light Trims won the Top 100 New Products Award in 2005.
Our award-winning decorative trims are designed to last and to keep their appearance even in wet locations. They’ve been faithfully reproduced from historic carvings for an authentic look, and they’re built to last for years to come.
Ease of Installation
You shouldn’t need an electrician or contractor to install simple lighting trim. All you need is a couple of minutes in order to pop it in yourself, when you have the correctly sized trims that are secured by the baffle.
