Help Needed: Residential Kitchen Remodel Canned Light Question.
We are in the midst of a kitchen remodel, and I am trying to source cans that will work for our kitchen. I would really like to stay away from track lighting, or anything that would protrude from our ceiling - we're trying to preserve the clean lines of the angled ceiling.

Here are the technical details:

We need IC rated recessed cans for a 1.5 pitch roof, spanning approx. 16 ft width, 7.5" clearance (joists are 2/8).

Does anyone have a source for an angled can that will fit this application? Am stuck, and truly appreciate your feedback.

The cans not going to be angled it's the trim ring.
Look into some eye ball trim rings.
Your also going to need air tite cans unless you want heat and cold coming in.

Is there an alternative to eyeballs?

We're going to have 25-30 cans, and would love an alternative to eyeballs. Is there another option to consider?

Appreciate your posting,

Google "sloped ceiling recessed cans". They aren't cheap.
