Selecting the right LED light bulbs for recessed lighting are based on can housing aperture width and types of reflectors and housing structures. Recessed lighting comes in these can housing aperture widths/ diameters: 3", 4", 5" or 6"; and these types of reflectors and housing structures: full reflectors, adjustable eyeball tilt reflectors, open housing with no reflectors or dome reflectors.
