Comprehensive Guide on LED False Ceiling Lights

LED lighting is the way of the future and for good reason. Ceiling lights are not just considered from a functional point of view, they are also a great way to enhance the look and feel of a space. Also known as a secondary ceiling, a false ceiling is perched below the main ceiling with hanging poles or another kind of suspension support. False ceiling lights are gaining immense popularity in retail stores and offices. They allow the showrooms to display their products under a light’s focus and enhance its importance. 

Your home deserves a unique touch, false ceiling designs enhance the glamour quotient of the room. False ceilings are also used for thermal insulation.  You must take into account all the aspects of decorative ceiling lights before making an ideal choice. Furthermore, there are several unanswered questions regarding false ceiling lights.

Decorative false ceiling light designs come under three main categories according to their functions:

1.Ambient lighting: This type of lighting offers overall illumination and works as a primary lighting source.

2. Task lighting: As the name suggests, task lighting works for specific tasks and purposes such as reading, cooking, etc. LED office ceiling lights are the perfect example of task lighting.

3. Accent lighting: This lighting provides enhanced brightness to the space. Its main objective is to offer dramatic lighting.

Types of LED Ceiling Lights

Recessed Lighting

Recessed lights are usually installed in a hollow in the ceiling, the light is concentrated at a point, or more spread out. The source of light is not visible therefore this fixture provides a softer lighting option for your home. LED recessed lights are warm and pleasing with a soft radiance. You can install these false ceiling lights at a specific distance from each other to light up the entire room or use it as a standalone for a focal point such as painting or wall ascent. What’s more, these lights are energy-efficient and thereby, light on your pocket. For compact rooms with low ceilings, this indirect lighting option fits best. The arrangement in a grid pattern can give it a rather modish look.

The best way for you to use recessed lights is to strategically highlight a part of the room, spotlight an area or unobtrusively put the focus on a wall. This technique is often used by retail showrooms.  The Gimbal recessed lights are a great way of hiding fragile and ugly-looking bulbs. These highly efficient lights can also create scenic visuals in the room with coloured lights. 

Drop Pendant Lighting

Pendant lights suit every part of the house and can come in a range of designs, varieties, heights, and sizes. They instantly lift any space and can be quite easy on the eye.

They are suspended from the false ceiling through a rod or a chain. They are ideal for illuminating the dining table, a centrepiece or a cosy sitting area. You can even use drop pendant lights to transform lacklustre stairwells and foyers into wow spaces. Another variant of the drop pendant light is the inverted pendant light. The lights facing upwards, creating a halo effect on the ceiling.

Cove Lighting

Cove lighting is ideal when you need to give a room just a warm glow or you need to emphasise on a division created by a dropped ceiling. The cove lights offer both soft and diffused lights, depending on how you want to add some drama to your space. They are installed into depressions or crown mouldings of the false ceiling. The light is directed upwards and, when bounced off the ceiling, gives the room a soft warm glow. Cove lights are best-suited for bedrooms for dreamy ambience and living rooms for a luxurious appeal.

Track Lighting

The beauty of track lights lies in the fact that you can use them to flaunt your artefacts around your home. Track lights can be easily understood as a series of spot lights arranged on a linear track. Each of these lights can be adjusted to varying angles so as to focus on multiple points simultaneously.

Track lights are ideal for kitchens, offices and gallery spaces. LED office ceiling lights provide a very illuminated look to your space. It can throw the spotlight on your coveted architectural piece, musical instrument, bookshelf or any unique object to which you want to attract a visitor’s attention.

Flush Mount Lighting 

Flush lights range from the simple to the very ornate and can be matched to varying interior styles. Flush lights are suited to rooms with a maximum height of 10 feet.

When you believe in minimalist living but still want to treat your eyes with arty décor lights, you might want to consider flush mount ceiling lights. They are especially very functional if your home has a low false ceiling or for spaces like basement, attics and kitchen. These fixtures are quite lightweight and hence work well in rooms with a false ceiling. Not only does a false ceiling lower the ceiling height in high ceiling rooms, it also keeps all wiring out of sight.

Inverted pendant lights

Also called up-lights, inverted pendant lights point to the ceiling, these lights work well in the entryway or passages, living rooms and are commonly used above kitchen islands too.
