Recessed Shower Light - WAC vs. Progress Lighting

marcia59September 27, 2010

I want to put an incandescent recessed shower light above my tub as part of a major renovation. I've looked at all the shower lights on lightingdirect.com. I eliminated all the ones that come down from the ceiling because I don't like the look, all the non-IC ones because my contractor said so and all the ones with fresnel lenses and similar looks because they look glare-y. That leaves me with a couple of very similar ones from Progress Lighting and one from WAC.

Does anyone have anything pro or con to say about either company? Or have another company they think I should look at instead?

Also, the lights from Progress are flush with the ceiling, while the lens from WAC is regressed (their term) up into the ceiling a bit. I can post a link to a picture if it's not clear what I mean. Aside from questions of personal taste, is there a functional difference between these two styles?

I'm not sure I'd want to buy from a company that doesn't understand the meaning of the word "regressed." :)
