Downlights - for modern, classic or country style interior
The surface-mounted downlight belongs to the category of ceiling lamps and is mounted to the ceiling accordingly. Unlike with the recessed spotlights, there is no retreat in the ceiling necessary, the downlight is attached directly to the surface.
Design downlights are often modest in design and therefore excellently suited to draw attention to the room itself, which is being lit. Thanks to its construction, it is possible to highlight certain sections of a room, like a particular corners or a special item, using direct light. That way, one can achieve remarkable effects or create a pleasant mood. If you combine several surface-mounted downlights, a room can be illuminated very evenly, while keeping a comfortable atmosphere. With the individual arrangement of downlights you can adjust the lighting entirely according to your individual needs.
The temperate design allows countless combinations: a neutral lamp adapts to a variety of decorating styles and is never misplaced. The Italian manufacturer Flos with its department Flos Architechtural provides very tasteful surface-mounted downlights, which are available in modern, modest or rustic colors. The low key design does of course not apply for all models: The Pelota downlight by Linea Light convinces with its futuristic design and enriches the environment with that certain something.
Some surface-mounted downlights are also adjustable and thus maximize flexibility. So you can illuminate different things using direct spotlight, and change your mind about what you want to enlighten, adjusting the downlight with a single touch. With multi-lamp, adjustable surface-mounted downlights, the possibilities are almost endless. Depending on the number of illuminants, you can multiply the illumination and also choose freely what you would like to light.
Thanks to the latest LED technology, most manufacturers offer their surface-mounted downlights also with LED bulbs. With regard to energy efficiency and lifetime, LEDs are always the best choice. It pays off in the end, not only on the electricity bill. LED surface-mounted downlights are most economical.
