Thinking about installing downlights to enhance indoor and outdoor lighting in your home in Australia? Here is what this creative lighting format can do for your home, inside and out.
One of the biggest trends in kitchen and bath lighting for decades, downlights have now made their way into the main living areas of Australian homes. The reason is obvious; this muted, recessed form of lighting provides a beautiful, ambient glow anywhere it is installed, giving you warm lighting without blinding you.
Bringing the Look Home
At Connect Furniture, we’re here to help you tackle the trend and bring downlighting into play in your home. Some places to consider installing downlights to add character and creative lighting to your home include:
- Beneath shelving
- Along the top of hallway walls
- Beneath kitchen counters, cabinets and range tops
- Over the top of showers and tubs, if the lighting is wet-rated
- Beneath medicine cabinets
- Inside of closets
Nearly anywhere you can think to add ambient lighting, you can introduce the warm and beautiful glow of downlights.
Great for Outdoors, Too
One of the most beautiful things about night-time is the way moonlight naturally lights the landscapes below it with a soft, cool glow. It can sometimes look as if that light is cast directly onto whatever it touches, rather than radiating everywhere like sunlight does. This is the same effect downlights can be used to achieve. By adding outdoor pendant and LED lighting to your landscaping in Melbourne or Brisbane, you can illuminate your garden and other areas of your property in a way that looks ethereal and beautiful, without overpowering the natural glow of night-time.
Outdoors, downlighting also casts a deliberate, focused glow on the places you need light most at night. Namely, it lights your way along the paths and close to your home’s walls so that you can make your way safely to and from the car, the mailbox, the trash bin or anywhere else you need to go at night.
