Recessed Led Light

When it comes to long-lasting, energy-saving and non-intrusive lighting solutions, you can’t go wrong with a recessed downlight. Aside from using LED lights to consume less energy than traditional lighting options, they also get embedded into your ceiling for a truly low-profile effect. 

We offer an array of recessed downlight models here at Best Buy Lighting, Australia's leading online store for designer lighting, smart lights and fans. 

Recessed LED lights — what about aesthetics?

Just because recessed LED lights are low-profile doesn’t mean you can’t use them to improve the look of your home or commercial space. With countless styles and colours to choose from, you can really get creative.

You can use them to not only set the mood you want, but also create whatever effect you’re going for. Whether you're aiming for a modern, minimalist look or a more traditional vibe, you can do all that with recessed LED lights. And, thanks to their unobtrusive form, the focus always remains on the beautifully lit spaces they create.

FAQs

What are recessed LED lights, and how do they differ from traditional lighting fixtures?

Also called LED recessed downlights, recessed LED lights use LEDs or light-emitting diodes to produce glare-free light. This means they last significantly longer and consume way less energy than incandescent or halogen bulbs.

As the name suggests, recessed downlights typically go into your ceiling like oyster lights, but unlike surface-mounted lights, they get embedded into the ceiling for a more streamlined, subtle look.

In contrast, traditional lighting fixtures are the exact opposite. They’re typically either suspended from or mounted on your ceiling and normally use incandescent or halogen bulbs. This means they generate more heat and glare, have a shorter lifespan and consume more energy.

What are the benefits of using recessed LED lights in my home or commercial space?

The primary benefits of using recessed LED lights in your home or commercial space are:

  • Energy efficiency — They help you save a lot of money on electricity since they consume up to 70% less energy compared to traditional alternatives.
  • Longevity — They eliminate the need for you to constantly buy replacement bulbs, as they’re designed to last up to 50 times longer than halogen or incandescent bulbs.
  • Low-profile design —They allow you to light up your entire home or commercial space — or parts of it — without taking up additional space or being distracting.

Is a recessed downlight better than other forms of LED downlights?

No, a recessed downlight is not necessarily better than other forms of LED downlights. It all depends on your specific design needs.

For example, if you’re looking for a non-intrusive way to light up a room, then recessed LED lights are definitely a great option. However, for other applications, there are a lot of other styles of LED downlights that might be a better fit.

For example, if you want to instantly class up a room or commercial space, a pendant light or chandelier would be a much better option. Both come in styles that use either LED or traditional lighting.

What is a recessed downlight for?

A recessed downlight has three main uses:

  • General lighting
  • Accent or mood lighting
  • Task or focused lighting

The ideal use for your space will depend on the room and its specific lighting needs.

Do I need to know how to change recessed downlights?

No, you don’t necessarily need to know how to change recessed downlights — at least not immediately after buying them. LED bulbs last significantly longer than other alternatives, so you won’t have to worry about changing them for a while.

When the time to replace your recessed LED lights does finally come, you can just hire an electrician to do it for you.

Can recessed LED lights be used in both new construction and retrofit applications?

Yes, recessed LED lights can be used in both new construction and retrofit applications, but it’s easier to use them in new projects than in finished spaces.

This is because, for new projects, the wiring and other relevant components are designed based on the type of lighting fixtures used. This means that whatever type of lighting you decide to go with, your electrician can simply add a provision for it.

In contrast, finished spaces already have their wiring in place. This means that, unless they were designed to be compatible with recessed downlight fixtures right from the get-go, you may need to make modifications before you can start with the installation.

The good news, though, is that you don’t really have to perform these modifications yourself. You can always just hire a professional to take care of them for you.
