Very small and compact, LED ceiling spotlights can be installed unobtrusively and, if flush with the ceiling, take up no space in the room, allowing a sleek look to be maintained and boosting their use in small spaces like cupboards, closets and en-suites.
Those LED ceiling spotlights that don't sit flush with the ceiling are on mobile, adjustable stems or bases, meaning the light can be pointed in different directions to allow intense lighting of a single area or lighting from multiple angles. The LED can also be turned away to provide more ambient light to the room, giving the illumination a much gentler tone.
On top of this, the LED spotlights can often be wired to operate independent of one another, giving the owner a unique amount of control over the lighting of their rooms. This feature is one of the things that makes them so compatible with other light sources, since they can be switched on or off independently as the situation demands.
Along the same lines, LED lights have incredible longevity and are unusually efficient. If a bulb fails in a room lit by LED spotlights, overall illumination will remain at a good level due to the other bulbs. If they can be repositioned, they can also be moved to compensate for the missing bulb until you can replace it!
Where to use LED Ceiling Spotlights
LED ceiling spotlights can be used in any room of the house. However, we think they especially give exceptional lighting and aesthetics to bathrooms, bedrooms and kitchens. Many people like to use LED Spotlights in the kitchen because it provides a great form of lighting when preparing food. The flexibility of the lights means that light can be provided where it is needed most. When working with sharp knives and hot pans, this is a big bonus! If you need any help picking your lights, don't hesitate to give us a call.
What are LED spotlights?
LED spotlights are the same as traditional spotlights in a visual and functional sense. Spotlights is a lamp that projects a beam of light onto a certain spot, which can be adjusted. They are great for room lighting as you can adjust them. Multiple spotlights can shine down on many areas, which is perfect for task lighting.
The only difference between LED and traditional lighting spotlights is the light source used. LEDs are significantly more efficient and cost-effective. LEDs use approximately 90% less electricity than traditional bulbs, which increases their lifetime and potentially can lead to a decrease in bills. Reducing your electricity usage also benefits the environment, and lowers your carbon footprint.
Where can spotlights be installed?
A popular option for ceiling spotlights is to have between 4 and 8 attached to an attachment. Ceiling spotlights are ideal as they equally distribute light across the whole room, and they can be dimmed when you want a lower light.
Wall spotlights are great for task lighting. For example, you could place one directly above your couch or armchair in the room where you read. This means you do not need to light the whole room up and use excessive electricity. Wall spotlights are also a popular option for outside purposes, as they can light up certain areas like a pathway, for practical purposes.
What options are available?
Colour: options for the colour of the spotlight head, and options for the colour of the light itself.

Are these spotlights for indoor or outdoor usage?
The spotlights that we sell are for indoor usage and can be used in any room that you would like. We also sell spotlights that can be installed for task lighting in the bathroom e.g. on the ceiling above the shower.
We also sell LED floodlights, which have a similar effect as spotlights, but they are for outdoor usage.
How do you install LED ceiling spotlights?
LED ceiling spotlights are easy to install. Here are the instructions:
Using a pencil and a compass, draw the position you would like the light to be on.
Check if there are any interferences e.g. cables or pipes, that could prevent light from being there.
If there is no interference, then you can move to the next step. Drill a small hole inside the circle.
Next, put on safety goggles and a mask. Now get a hole saw and cut around the circle that you drew out.
Remove the plaster that you removed from the ceiling.
Now your light slot is ready.
