Learn how to hang pendant lights in any space.
Whether you need general lighting or task lighting, there are a number of things to consider when choosing the right downlights. Generally, these are a versatile option for illuminating any room, from the hallway to the kitchen. The key is to work out how many lights you need for a given space and how to position them correctly.
Downlights can either be set flush to the ceiling or recessed for a sloping ceiling which allows you to adjust the angle of the light. If you want to install them over a bathroom mirror, make sure you position the downlight over the basin to avoid casting shadows. You can also install dimmers on certain downlights to change the mood.
Downlights can be a cost-effective way to light your home. If you currently have halogen downlights installed, making the switch to LED can be a great cost and energy saver over the long term. You can also save energy by installing downlights on separate switches to limit the amount of lights you switch on at one time.
