To help you get started, we’ve put together 5 hand tips for integrating downlights in your lighting plan:

1. Get your spacing right

If you’re lighting high-traffic common areas such as an open plan living space, evenly spacing downlights will provide multi-purpose functional lighting. Check out our budget friendly LEDlux Vivid range.

2. Master the ‘wall washing’ technique

By evenly spacing downlights such as our low glare GE Champ range along a wall, you’ll ‘wash’ the wall with unique scallops of lights. This is ideal for highlighting artwork. No artwork? No problem! Wall washing is still an excellent way to gently fill a space with ambient light without the glare of an overhead downlight. Increase the distance from the wall for a lower starting point of light.

3. Get creative with accent lighting

By placing downlights such as our stylish LEDLux Surface directly over a point of interest in a room such as a stylish side table or ornament, you’ll create contrast and atmosphere, while still providing an element of task lighting.

4. Use clever placement to create interest and depth

Pairing downlights such as our MFL Accent and Titan with adjustable beam angles closely together creates intense pools of light, providing good contrast and interesting shadow effects.

5. Select dimmable downlights

And remember, wherever possible, choose downlights that are dimmable as this makes for greater lighting flexibility.
