shower light on sloped ceiling


Does anyone know if there are fixtures for above a shower and the ceiling is sloped. I would like a recessed light but want the light to shoot down. Is there such a fixture ? My contractor seems to think not but i feel certain something exists. Am I right? Thanks

you are right, he is wrong. You need a can (pot) light for an angled ceiling that will accept a trim for damp conditions.

Not sure which of these are listed for use in damp conditions (with appropriate trim of course) but I know at least one of them is.

You could also go with an eyeball trim that is directional. They're not as sleek as the sloped recessed cans, but are more common and cheaper.

2 problems come to mind

1. the trim would have to be listed for damp conditions. Not sure I have seen such although there very well could be.

2. does the eyeball rotate far enough to give the desired angle downward.

If both of those concerns can be addressed, they by all means, consider them as well.

If it is not subject to shower spray it only needs to be damp rated, not wet.
Most trims and cans are damp rated.
