Recessed lighting in the bathroom.


I was wondering if you have to put a special kind of can light in the bathroom or can I just use the kind I am using for my whole basement? The light isn't going to be in the actual shower. Here is the light




Also, Why are some crazy expensive and some (like this one) $5-6 apiece?


Thanks.

They can be in the shower if you use shower trims otherwise no problem throughout the rest of te bath.


Different brands, different quality, smaller sizes usually cost more, low voltage cost even more.
