Hi, I was wondering if someone could help me with my recess light question.
Below is my Hallway with a coat closet + bathroom entry. I'm thinking of installing one recessed light there. That current light fixture is boring me. That Hallway is technically over 12ft long total, but the "actual enclosed" hallway part which includes the closet+bathroom entry is about 7 feet long while still maintaining two walls and a ceiling. The rest of that hallway actually opens up greatly, as one of the walls expands and the ceiling goes up to over 20 feet high.
I was thinking one recess light there would look nice. So, I was wondering should I go with a 5'' or 6'' recessed light? And what trim would do better in that location? Reflector? or plain plastic trim? Heck, is that even a good place to put recessed?
I'm going to be doing this with a halo IC. I read about what materials I would need and I already know how to install a dimmer. Also if you have anything extra to add it would be appreciated. How well this one recessed light goes, would greatly determine if I put a series of recessed lights upstairs in my 24ft hallway
I hate 6" cans, the aperture is huge and just plain ugly IMO, besides all that, you can usually still use the same wattage lamp in a 5" vs 6" can, but the option is still yours... I usually sell white on white baffle trims.
