Are can lights the same as recessed lights?
People also ask, what is the difference between can lights and recessed lights?

With the combination of the low voltage bulbs and adjustable trims on the recessed cans, it is much easier to illuminate a room.
Likewise, what is recessed can lighting? A recessed light or downlight (also pot light in Canadian English, sometimes can light (for canister light) in American English) is a light fixture that is installed into a hollow opening in a ceiling.
