Why Install Downlights?
Downlights are a great way to modernise your home while also improving energy efficiency. Typically, you’ll find downlights use energy efficient LED lights. This provides a long lasting alternative to traditional halogen and incandescent lights with almost 50,000 hours of use and a 10 year lifespan.
So, how does a downlight provide a nice, even glow? When turned on, it shines light into either a beam angle (less than 60 degrees) or a wide beam angle (60 degrees or more). This illuminates an area from a recess in the ceiling and not from a hanging light bulb. The varying angle means you can either have a wider glow or a more concentrated spotlight.
Some of the other perks of downlights are:
- Installable almost anywhere, including bathrooms, living areas, kitchens and under cabinetry and benches
- Give a clean look, without any fixtures, pendants or light bulbs hanging down
- Dimmable bulbs, to ensure you can set the light to your desired brightness
- Options for colour temperature to influence the mood and atmosphere of your home
- Variable angles to suit your decor and paint
As you’ll often need to alter your existing fittings and fixtures, Metropolitan recommends using qualified electricians for downlight installation.

Downlights, especially LED downlights, should have an extended lifespan of about 10 years. And even when they reach the end, they will dim rather than flash out like a traditional bulb.
