Enhance Your Home and Garden With Downlights

From the garden path to the foyer, today’s top landscape and home designers rely on versatile and affordable downlights to accent and add character to any indoor or outdoor space. “Downlight” refers to the direction of the beam of light, and downlights can be as simple as recessed ceiling lights added to a kitchen remodel, to delicate downcast lighting of a stone path in the garden.

Downlights are particularly appreciated by designers as a subtle way to add needed light without the use of wall-mounted lamps. Homeowners appreciate the affordability of downlights and everyone enjoys the gentle, flattering light they provide.

Downlights are the perfect lighting choice for a variety of areas, both inside and out. Concealed downlighting near stair rails adds comforting light to dark stairwells and much-needed illumination on outdoor steps. Artfully-placed downlighting is perfect for the entryway or foyer and can act as a subtle security feature on exterior and garden walls.

Downlights are the interior designer’s secret for dramatic effect in the garden. Sometimes hidden in trees, downlights can add an ethereal glow to bushes and other landscaping features, making the garden feel magical after sunset. Downlighting on water is especially lovely, and downlit waterfalls, ponds and pools take on an eye-catching brilliance that adds depth and drama.

Downlighting can also be very affordable. Many LED and low-voltage downlight fixtures are low-cost options that meet homeowners’ needs without breaking the bank. Available in a wide range of designs, downlighting can be simple and subtle, bold and dramatic, or delicate and whimsical. Affordable, functional and endlessly versatile, downlighting is the decorator’s secret for high drama at low cost.

Functionality meets style in the many downlights and lighting fixtures provided by the lighting experts at Lighting Direct, New Zealand’s first choice in lighting shops.
