Ceiling Recessed Light Cover

I have a couple 5" recessed lights in my kitchen as shown in the picture below:

However, we do not have the covers. Do they sell just the covers anywhere? I have looked on Home Depot and Lowes sites, but haven't found much as far as, JUST the cover/trim piece.

Or is that not possible, and I"ll just have to put entirely new lights in both slots?

The cans and baffles are sold separate. Go to any store and you will find lots of options to choose from!

Thank you both for the replies. I measured the outer most edges of the ring at 5 inches. Does the trim sit out an extra inch to make it 6", or is that the wrong size for me posted in that link?

Those trim rings usually come in 5" and 6", and some even fit either size. But they are available. While you are at it, have you considered upgrading to LED's? They come with their own trim rings, give out excellent light and longevity.

Chandler,

I have upgraded other lights and fans/lights around the house to LED, so it's definitely worth looking into. You have also helped me in the past on other things. I really appreciate you replying and helping me out again!
