Replacing chandelier with recessed light
I want to replace a chandelier in my kitchen with an eyeball recessed light. I bought a 6" eyeball trim. The box says to use it with a 6" IC or non IC housing. I've replaced light fixtures previously, so I understand I need to flip the breakers first! I also feel comfortable cutting the sheetrock to accommodate the trim. My problem is not knowing what I need to install vs. what is already installed with the chandelier. I took pictures of the trim and the area where I want to put it. Will I need to install the housing? Will that require cutting a hole larger that the finished hole needs to be?
Thanks in advance for any guidance!
