Bathroom and Kitchen LED Down Lights

LED downlights have come a long way since halogen downlights both in the amount of light they produce and the dramatic reduction of heat and energy use. Quality downlights can make all the difference in your new bathroom or kitchen renovation. If you are looking to complete a small or quick renovation put changing older light fittings to downlights or adding more down lights high on your wish list as you will be surprised at the difference this will make.

 

Which Light Layer are down lights suitable for?

Downlights are a popular and cost effective choice for every layer of light in your bathroom and kitchen. How you apply downlights to your lighting plan will depend on how many different sources of light you are putting in your new bathroom or kitche. Light layering is about creating different shades of light, playing with shadows and using colours to enhance your space and make it both more functional and beautiful. Multiple light sources help balance a room, while adding depth and dimension. 

Ambient Lighting

Is considered the base level of lighting. Done well, it makes a room considerably more welcoming. It provides an area with overall illumination and a comfortable level of brightness to see and move about safely. Ambient lighting is typically provided by ceiling-mounted luminaires such as downlights, with illumination mainly for orientation and general vision.

Task Lighting

Provides a direct source of light for a specific activity like reading, grooming, preparing food and cooking, doing homework and playing games. Ensuring adequate task lighting through downlights will make your environment more pleasant, free of glare and shadows and bright enough to prevent eye strain.

Accent Lighting

Adds drama to a room or area by creating visual interest. It can be used to draw the eye to items such as artworks or displays, highlight architectural design elements and outdoor landscaping. Accent lighting is often provided by downlights as their small footprint can be positioned almost anywhere in the room. 

 

Thing to remember when choosing your Bathroom Lighting

  • Consider if you need your lighting to be waterproof
  • Understand where to position lighting above a mirror to avoid creating shadows
  • Create a retreat feel by using pendant lights, it is easy and cost effective
  • If you have children using the bathroom in the middle of the night consider sensor controlled lighting or LED strip lighting as a night light
  • Why not add a shower head with LED lighting?

 

Thing to remember when choosing your Kitchen Lighting

  • Your food prep and cooking zones should be free of shadows by using adequate task lighting, ensuring these activities can be done safely
  • Consider softer ambient lighting for your dining and after dinner conversations
  • The kitchen is a very different place at different times of the day so be sure you have lighting options that give you the flexibility to adjust at various times
  • LEDs can provide a bright light without producing any heat, which is ideal for under cabinet lighting near food prep zones
  • Open plan living dining? Pendant lights in your dining area can be a great way to segment the room from your kitchen
  • Install pendant lights 80cm above a bench or table, this creates comfortable light and enough room for people to move around
