What LED Downlights Are Best for Which Room in Your Home

Posted by Leonie Ferrer on 4th Aug 2017

There are many factors that come into play when deciding on the right colour, wattage and brightness of your LED downlights for the different rooms in your home. Things like the height of your ceilings, the size and shape of the room, how much natural light gets in and the kind of ‘feel’ you are looking to achieve.

For areas like the living room ambient, warm LED lighting is a great way to create that ‘homely’ feeling during mealtimes and while entertaining. Dimmable lighting is ideal in this space as it allows you to customize the vibe depending whether you are having a family dinner, romantic meal or a party with friends.

The kitchen should be illuminated with clean, bright lights and placed with functionality in mind, making sure there are no deep shadows for ease of tasks. The kitchen is a great place to play around with feature lighting like placing narrow beam downlights above kitchen islands and pantries.

LED downlights are perfect for outdoor areas such as undercover patios and decks as they can be installed in the ceiling or roof of the patio with weather resistant seals and covers. Dimmable LED lighting is always ideal for outdoor spaces so that you can adjust the lighting depending on the time of day.

Bedrooms don’t require heavy lighting, choose cool tones and place them strategically according to the layout of the room to accent certain areas or highlight art works and picture frames. Bedrooms are a great place to play around with lighting and completely transform your space.

Don’t forget, the versatility of LED downlights allows you to place them on the floor so think about lighting up walkways, hallways and even staircases; the possibilities are endless!
