Most often used in restricted space areas such as cabinets, closets and hallways, 3-inch recessed lighting is also ideal for spotlighting focal points in a room. It's considered the most subtle and refined type of lighting since it imperceptibly interacts with the aesthetics of interior design. Often 3-inch recessed lighting trims are made from stainless steel in order to accent natural wood-finished interiors or toned white to accent neutral colors in a paint-finished interior. Frequently, wall-washed trim and decorative trim is used with 3-inch recessed lighting as they use directional reflectors and light "scoops" to create room depth and ambiance. When looking to use 3-inch recessed lighting trim to accent architecture and artwork or for wall washing effects, look to Destination Lighting's extensive catalog of lighting accessories. We carry trim that accommodates higher wattage halogen lamps, CFLs and ultra-energy saving LED bulbs. Since not all trim sizes work with all housings, we're happy to discuss with you the types of housing compatible with any trims you may be considering. Also, be aware that some trims are designed for use with fixtures with line voltage while others are meant for low voltage luminaire use. Of course, we stock trim rated for use in wet/damp locations such as shower rooms, saunas or under house eaves.
