Our lighting experts have created a handy buyers guide covering some of the most popular types of ceiling lighting and the rooms they are best suited to.


Ceiling Spotlights

Also commonly referred to as downlights or recessed lights they are perfect if you want to create a minimalist look or have low ceilings. They can be used as the main room or ambient light source but work equally well as task lighting or to illuminate dark corners.


Most Suited For: Most often used in bathrooms and kitchens but can be used in virtually any room around the home.


Flush Ceiling Lights

Perhaps the most common style of light fitting in British homes today, flush or semi-flush lighting is ideal for rooms when ceiling height is limited. The term ‘Flush Lighting’ covers everything where the space between the ceiling and the fitting is kept to a minimum. Semi flush lighting will sit a little further away from the ceiling and provides extra options and styles.


Most Suited For: Any room where the ceiling height is approximately 8 feet or below.


Stairwell Lighting

One of our favourite categories as the extra space/drop available in a stairwell means the lighting designs can be must more ornate and spectacular. These ceiling lights are designed with WOW factor in mind and are created to bring a sometimes neglected part of the home to life.


Most Suited For: Stairwells or any rooms where you may have high ceilings.
