In fact, the difference between LED downlights and LED spotlights is mainly to look at the details. People often confuse the two and do not know how to distinguish between downlights and spotlights. The following briefly explains how to distinguish between them.
First, What is LED downlight
LED downlights generally have a screw base, which can be directly mounted on incandescent or energy-saving lamps. Downlight is a lighting fixture that is embedded in the ceiling and emits light. Its biggest feature is that it can maintain the overall unity and perfection of architectural decoration, and will not destroy the perfect unity of ceiling art because of the setting of lamps. This kind of concealed lamps embedded in the ceiling, all light is projected downward, which belongs to direct light distribution. Different reflectors, lenses, blinds, and bulbs can be used to achieve different light effects. Downlights do not occupy space and can increase the soft atmosphere of the space. If you want to create a warm feeling, you can try to install multiple downlights to reduce the pressure of space. Generally used in hotels, families, coffee shops.
LED downlights are generally installed on the surrounding ceilings of bedrooms, living rooms, and bathrooms. The main problem of downlights lies in the lamp sockets. The lamp sockets of some off-brand downlights are not resistant to high temperatures and are easily deformed, causing the bulbs to be unscrewed. Now, all lamps can only be sold after passing the 3C certification, so consumers should choose the downlights that have passed the 3C certification.
Second, what is a spotlight
Spotlights are typical modern genre lighting with no main lights and no fixed scale. They can create an indoor lighting atmosphere. If a row of small spotlights are combined, the light can change into wonderful patterns. Since the small spotlight can freely change the angle, the effect of the combined lighting is also ever-changing. The spotlight is soft, graceful and luxurious, and can be used for local lighting to enhance the atmosphere.
LED spotlights can be placed around the ceiling or on the upper part of the furniture, in the wall, in the skirt or skirting. The light shines directly on the household utensils that need to be emphasized to highlight the subjective aesthetic effect, so as to achieve the artistic effect of prominent focus, unique environment, rich layers, rich atmosphere, and colorful.
