I’ve got two bathroom lights I’d like to replace.

One is a floodlight type fixture that burns hot - you can feel the heat when you’re standing underneath it. I’d like to replace with an LED. The hole pictured below is 6 5/8”. Sort of a weird size. Do I get a 7” recessed light and simply push it up?


The second is standard recessed can over the shower. I’d like to just replace the trim if possible. The hole is 7”. And the trim is about 8”. What should I be googling to replace that or should I just save time and buy a 7” recessed light with moisture tolerance? Or will a 7” can be too small for that hole.

See pics below.

Why don't you pull that trim and bulb assembly down and use an LED trim. It plugs directly into where the bulb is now. On the bottom one, you could use an LED bulb and use the same fixture. 7" old work box may work, but you'd have to check the specs on the required hole.
