Modern track lighting is a versatile lighting solution that allows multiple lights to be used with simple installation. Track lighting is highly customisable and can be ceiling mounted, suspended or recessed depending on the setting and preference.
Ceiling track lighting offers the simplest installation, as track is fixed directly to the ceiling surface. Suspended track brings the light down to your preferred height, using adjustable suspension wires. Recessed track lighting is a more complex installation and sets track into the ceiling, leaving the ceiling surface uncluttered. The best option for you depends on a number of factors such as ceiling height, the type of space and your interior scheme.
Modern track lighting is very popular in kitchens. Track can be ceiling mounted, following the layout of kitchen units to provide directional light over food preparation surfaces or a sink. This can be complemented by suspended track lighting hanging over a kitchen island or dining table.
LED track lights are available in black or white finishes with further customisation options to produce your ideal solution. A choice of beam angles allows you to choose how widely or narrowly focused the beam of light from each fitting is spread. Colour temperature is another variable. A ‘warmer’ colour temperature (around 3000K) gives a softer light closer to fire or candlelight, and a ‘cooler’ colour temperature (around 5000K) gives a brighter light more like daylight. Many LED spotlights are dimmable giving the flexibility to adjust the light level depending on the time of day, activity and ambience you want to create.
