A guide to chrome LED Downlights

LED downlights are an extremely versatile lighting solution that can be used in a wide range of settings. They are the perfect fixtures for any environment, from kitchens to office lighting.

They are available in a number of colours and finishes which allows you to match them to the décor and environment they will reside in. Chrome is a popular and stylish choice and, the trim you choose will have a huge impact on the interior décor and environment you are lighting so its important to consider carefully.

Why is it important to choose the correct finish?

LED downlights are available in a range of wattage, colour temperature and size options but you also have a choice over the finish or bezel you can choose for your LED downlights too. Bezels are a ring that is fitted around the front of a downlight which is used to change look of your downlight as well as protect the bulb. This is perfect if you’re looking to alter your downlights to suit your interior décor.

Once your LED downlights have been installed, aside from the lighting provided, the bezel is the only part of the downlight that will be seen. So, making the right choice is important to make sure your lighting either blends into your existing décor or draws your eye to the lighting, depending on the effect you’re looking to create.

Choosing the right bezel can either turn a lighting solution into a feature, creating a space that is unique to your design needs and preferences, or it can simply allow the downlight to blend in with existing décor or ceiling colour.

From satin to chrome, to white, brass or aluminium, there are a number of options available. Chrome finishes are popular and allow the lighting fixture to complement the setting perfectly.

Benefits of LED downlights with a chrome finish

Buying LED downlights with a chrome finish has multiple benefits and they have become a popular choice among customers in homes and businesses such as restaurants, hotels and office buildings.

Match features within existing décor

Many features within interior décor such as light switches, power sockets and door handles now come with a chrome finish and are often used to accentuate various décor styles. Choosing LED downlights to match these features helps to tie in your lighting to the interior décor and create a seamless and modern look to any room.

Chrome is subtle and sleek in style, adding a smart feature to any room or space. In addition, chrome has long been the choice for features within a space so, even if you were to redecorate or trends change, the chrome LED downlights will remain a timeless feature.

Provide a contemporary look

Chrome downlights will provide a modern look to any space, whatever the décor scheme. From modern and minimalist to industrial, chrome LED downlights will provide the perfect lighting solution. Other finishes such as brass, copper and gold have become popular in current home décor trends but they fade in and out of trend quickly. On the other hand, chrome will offer a timeless finish that will remain in style for years to come and continue to provide a contemporary look and feel, despite changing trends.

Provide a lighting feature

Chrome provides a popular method for turning spaces lit by LED downlights into a feature. Whether you want to replace a ceiling light with chrome LED downlights to draw the eye upwards and enjoy ambient lighting within your living room or you want to use chrome lighting to create a feature in your bathroom above the bath or shower area, chrome LED downlights are a great choice.
