Here at Simple Lighting, we have a wide array of downlight types for you to choose from. No matter your requirements, we have got you covered. On this page, you will find our complete range of dimmable LED downlights.

Combine this with the dimmable feature of these downlights, and you can also create the perfect atmosphere. Read on to discover more about them, and please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

What are Dimmable LED Downlights?

LED dimmable downlights can save energy, as most will use dimmable GU10 LED bulbs. Also, you can choose the level of brightness you wish to have in the room.

This ensures that you are not using more energy when it is not needed. Aside from being incredibly energy-efficient, dimmable LED downlights can also change the mood and visual appearance of your space. In the evening, when you are ready to wind down, you can turn the lights down so that you have the perfect atmosphere in the room.

Unlike a conventional incandescent or fluorescent bulb, this lighting solution will not rely on a voltage circuit to allow its brightness to reach maximum capacity. Lighting ideas are made simple with the flexibility of brightness - no matter the atmosphere you’re trying to create, it will become attainable.

In contrast to most forms of LED lighting (LED strip lights, LED commercial lighting, LED spotlights, etc.) - downlights such as a fire-rated LED downlight, bathroom downlight or dimmable LED downlights can be recessed (fixed or non-fixed with tilt) into a ceiling by cutting a hole.

Typically, you will need to contact a professional upon installation - should you get it wrong, you may have an unwanted hole in your ceiling that can't fit any lights in optimally. Taking note of the product rating, reviews and specifications before purchasing will ensure that your home gets the correct integrated lighting addition. 

What is the Difference Between Downlights and Spotlights?

The key difference between a downlight and a spotlight is that downlights (whether they're non-dimmable or dimmable LED downlights) are designed in such a way that they throw illumination downwards, concentrating the light purposefully in a downward direction. This is opposed to a spotlight, which projects a narrow, intense beam of light onto a specific area that can be adjusted.

This is reflected in the type of lighting the two different types of light offer, with dimmable LED recessed downlights or other types tending to be used to offer auxiliary or general lighting. Spotlights, on the other hand, tend to be used to highlight a specific area or object.

One of the main differences between a downlight and a spotlight is the installation. While a downlight is installed directly into the ceiling, a spotlight is fixed to either the ceiling or a wall. A downlight is also often a light bulb set in a metal cylinder with a decorative fascia that is held into the ceiling using clips. This differs from a spotlight, which is fixed to a wall or ceiling.

Can LED Downlights Be Dimmed?

LED downlights can absolutely be dimmed, but there are a few considerations that need to be taken into account before looking to install dimmable LED downlights.

Firstly, not all LED bulbs are dimmable; you must find out if your bulb is dimmable before you buy it. This is because some bulbs have technology restrictions, meaning that they can not be dimmed correctly and will not work. It is also important to use a specific LED dimmer switch, as ordinary dimmer switches will not always work with LED lights.

Due to existing dimmer switches often having a minimum power of 50W and because LED lights tend to have lower wattages than a standard bulb, when an LED bulb is connected to a standard dimmer switch, it will not reach the minimum power required. Essentially, what this will cause are the lights to flicker, make a buzzing noise or even overheat.

As you view our dimmable LED downlights here at Simple Lighting, ensure that you’re doing your due diligence. Researching the switch that your bulb will need is vital to a successful lighting experience.
