We all know that water and electricity don’t mix, which is why choosing the right bathroom lighting is such an important decision. Bathroom LED downlights with an IP65 rating are a popular choice as they adhere to the strict safety regulations set for bathroom electricity.
Bathroom downlights are easy to install and come in a variety of fixtures to illuminate your bathroom safely and with style. The minimalist design helps give your bathroom a contemporary look whilst providing optimal lighting. We provide a wide variety of LED lights for bathrooms and shower rooms, all of which meet the highest safety standards.
What are Bathroom LED Downlights?
Bathroom downlights are a type of recessed lighting which is specifically designed for use in wet rooms and damp environments. The lights are set into a hole in the ceiling and are designed to lie flush with the surface so that no moisture can get into the electrical structure behind it. This prevents dampness from building up or mould from forming.
These downlights shine a direct beam of light straight down rather than spreading it wide across the room. This focused style of lighting is ideal for rooms such as the bathroom where you need more functional lighting.
A Practical Lighting Solution for your Bathroom
Lighting a bathroom can be a challenge, but with bathroom LED downlights you can have effective illumination and have the freedom to create any ambience you wish. With just one or two downlights you can make the most of mirrors and reflective surfaces to achieve bright and balanced lighting suitable for washing or shaving.
The compact design also means that these lights can be fitted into smaller spaces, preventing shadowy corners. We also offer bathroom LED downlights with a dimming function, which you can use to create a peaceful ambience ideal for when you want to relax with a nice hot bath!
Why Choose LED Lighting?
Our range of bathroom downlights are powered by LEDs (light emitting diodes) for a number of reasons. Firstly, LEDs are more energy efficient than all other standard light bulbs. Since they don’t give out heat, all the energy used is converted to light. Secondly, they also last much longer making them the more economical lighting choice. You can save money not only on your electricity bills but in the reduction of replacement and maintenance costs.
Choose from a Variety of Styles
Bathroom LED downlights are a modern choice for bathroom lighting, and we have a variety of styles and fixtures for you to choose from. Set into the bathroom ceiling, these downlights are chic, discreet, and functional giving your room style and even illumination.
You can choose from dimmable bathroom LED downlights, adjustable lights, as well as a range of finishes such as white, and chrome in black, satin or polished. You also have the choice of LED bulbs in different temperatures, brightness (measured in Lumens) and beam angles so you can create the right ambience for your bathroom interior.
Bathroom Downlights and IP Ratings
When buying bathroom downlights, it's particularly important to pay special attention to safety which is why bathroom downlights should always be of a certain IP rating.
What are IP Ratings?
An IP rating, or Ingress Protection ratings, describe the levels of sealing that electrical enclosures have against foreign bodies as dirt and moisture. The ratings consist of the letters “IP” followed by two digits. The first digit refers to protection against solids and the second against liquids.
We offer bathroom LED downlights with ratings of IP54 and IP65. The IP54 downlights are protected from dust and water splash. While the IP65 rated downlights are protected from total dust and low-pressure water jets from any direction making them the ideal lighting solution for shower cubicles.
