Rated 5 out of
these lights look great!!I have alot of art on my walls as well as sculpture. These lights are bright enough to highlight the art beautifully. They are also small enough to hide away - they seem to disappear very stylishly.

Which compatible housing IS dimmable with this trim?

Is there an elco light like the EL1497 that isn't a low voltage light? I would like to find this light in a 120v setup.

I am remodeling my bathroom will this work in the shower or outside shower only?
A. The Elco EL1497 is UL listed for damp locations so will only work outside of the shower.
