Pot Lights

Hi there,

I want to install pot lights out from a wall that will hold art work. The ceiling separates the room from a roof area. The angle of the roof prevents me from putting in the light boxes that are insulated unless I am five feet into the room. This is too far away from the wall even with lights that angle. The light would spot too low on the wall. Also, the lights would almost be in the center of the room. Someone told me they thought there was a product on the market that had an angled box for just this installation issue; tight roof angles. Has anyone heard of this and can advise where I might view it? Otherwise, I will be looking at track lighting which is not as desirable.

Pot Lights

Hi Lauren,
Yes there are angled boxes adaptable to sloped ceilings. Call your local lighting store and as for a "sloped ceiling can light".
