How to choose the right LED panel size
LED panels are a popular lighting choice for homes, offices and other commercial buildings. However, with a range of sizes available, it can be difficult to know which size to choose or which options are available to you.
If you have an existing ceiling grid, it’s an easy choice as most LED panels are designed to slot in as a replacement for traditional fluorescent tube lighting. If you’re looking to install LED panels without a ceiling grid, it can be a tricky choice. In this guide, you will learn more about the LED panel sizes available, where they can be used and their benefits.

These options provide you with more flexible lighting solutions that can be adapted to suit your application.
Before purchasing 600mmx600mm LED panels it’s important to consider where you will be using them as this can affect the type and size you will need. It’s also important to think about the quality of light you need and ensure that the lighting you’re replacing will be matched by the LED panels you choose.

- Better light quality

Being aware of the options available to you will help you to make sure the lighting solution you choose is suitable for your application and will offer the best quality lighting. The key differences between the panels are their size, shape, the amount of light emitted and how it is emitted.
The size you choose will largely be dictated by any current ceiling grid in place so, if you’re replacing an old lighting system, this is something you should consider. If you’re choosing a completely new lighting solution, the size will depend on the size of the room and the purpose of the lighting.
