Recessed downlights are still a popular option with a seemingly endless range of styles to choose from. An ever increasing number of downlights tend to have an LED light source, the benefits of which are improved energy efficiency, much longer lifespan and a wide choice of colour temperatures such as warm white, cool white and even daylight. The choice of colour temperature tends to depend on the application, kitchens and bathrooms often look better with cool or daylight colours, whereas bedrooms and dining rooms often benefit from a warm white.
Another aspect to consider is direction control, a number of designs allow for adjustment of the direction to which the spotlight bulbs point, thus enabling you to perfectly locate the pool of light in the desired area.
