To ensure that you get the best results possible, It is a must that you avoid guesswork while shopping for pot lights. There are certain decisions that you will need to make on pot light fixtures in Toronto, some of which will require specific product recommendations that we, at Mr. Potlight, will gladly fulfill. For starters, you should try to understand or at least have basic information relating to types of pot-light housing.
Generally, you will have two major options when it comes to housing. You can go for New Construction if you are constructing a new office/home, or Remodeling, or if you are installing recessed lights in an existing building. In any case, pot lights make an outstanding way to provide sufficient light in the kitchen, hallway, bathroom, living room or dining room. At Mr. Potlight, we have a complete range of pot light fixtures including bulbs and trims in almost all major brands.
Now, you have to consider the following options:
- IC and Non- IC: you will need to go with an IC rated housing if you have an insulated ceiling. Either of the two options will work for non-insulated ceilings.
- Air Tight: these are modern designs meant to increase energy efficiency. They are improvements on traditional housings that would result in loss of heat or cool air into ceilings, eventually increasing the heating and cooling costs.
Other types of housings that you may need to consider when selecting pot light fixtures Toronto include:
- UL/ CUL Damp Locations
- Fire Rated Light Covers
- Commercial use housings
For professional assistance when shopping for pot light fixtures in Toronto, you can rely on us. We guarantee you the best solutions when it comes to potlights for residential or commercial uses.

The key variation in pot lights comes with the decorative trim that is installed with the light itself. While a baffled trim has a ribbed interior to remove any possible glare, the reflective trim provides the most illumination. The lights can also come with an adjustable head, allowing you to direct the light to a specific location, or a wall trim, which blocks a portion of the light to highlight a specific area, such as a painting.
As opposed to the more traditional incandescent and halogen light bulbs, LED lights can offer as much as six or seven times the energy efficiency. The difference in energy efficiency will remove a significant expense from your electricity bill, and provide you with a more environmentally friendly method of lighting your home. Our installation technicians are able to provide you with an LED pot light alternative to our more conventional pot light products.
It’s up to you to determine the light brightness, tint and colour which best accentuates your interior. We recommend choosing a bulb type and brightness before contacting us, so that we can advise you on how best to proceed. If you’re installing tinted lights, remember that they are exchangeable, though not inexpensive. Ensure you are ready to commit to a bulb.
