Ripping out old fiberglass tub/shower combo and replacing with custom tiled shower. Overhead in shower will be tiled. I am looking for ideas as to what light fixture to use. Thanks.

Has to be one rated for wet locations. Usually a recessed with a cover.

If you go "standard", consider an air-tight IC-rated can light with a shower trim kit. Usually about $10 for the can and maybe $25 for the shower trim kit.

There are 3" and 4" LED cans available that are rated for wet and damp locations. About $45-55 for the entire unitdepending on size.
