Recessed Lighting options

May 15, 2019

In my new addition, I want to use recessed lighting in Bath, Bedroom, and closet. It's been while since I have installed recessed lighting and there appear to be different options now. I see I can buy a housing still that takes a bulb, or a LED light kit, or I can buy an LED light that just goes through the ceiling and springs hold it to the drywall.

Are these LED kits the way to go, with no housing? The ceiling will be textured. Some say they are IC rated. Seems strange to put insulation right against the light itself. '

I've also seen some very thin surface mount lights that attach to a standard ceiling box. Would this be even better than the recessed?
