LED Downlights are for illuminating spaces and at the same time very useful placed or designed in such a way that it throws illumination downwards. It should come with a metal cylinder, mounted on or recessed into the ceiling. So where is the best place to get such downlights? What are the things to consider when acquiring one?
First Know What is Regression
A recessed downlight needs to have proper regression that is basically pertaining to how “recessed” the downlight is. A full, or “deep” fixture’s regression has a light source being seated high up into the housing and the surrounding trim is deep. It is made useful for having a less distracting glare. It is where the light source becomes less visible especially when the downlight is being seen from afar. This kind of downlight is beneficial in the aspect of comfort and better aesthetics.
You will find little or no regression at all in some cheaper fixtures. Through these, you can put the light source near the ceiling plane but note that it can be dangerous because it can cause eye fatigue.
Which Size Do You Need
There are aperture sizes ranging from 2-inches up to 8-inches in diameter. The 6-inch size is generally functional and is considered a good choice for general illumination applications. If your space is from 8’-0” to 10’-0” ceiling, then the 6-inch downlight is your thing, if not, you can take the smaller sizes although these can look a little bit ordinary. Smaller ones can be used primarily for accent lighting with lower light level needs. Some of these are even used in exhibits to light up arts or paintings on the wall.
